In order to strengthen the human conditions in reformatory, prisons and detention centers, Hammurabi Human Rights Organization publishes its field report on the reality of the Juvenile Reformatory Houses (female - male).
The report was a summary of an inspection visit by a delegation from Hammurabi Organization to the two Reform houses on 6-7 May 2018.
The delegation included Mrs. Pascale Warda, Chairwoman of Hammurabi Human Rights Organization and Mrs. Ikhlas Kamel Behnam, Board Member, and Dr. Bashar Sadoun, Member of the general assembly of the Organization. The delegation has all the legitimate mechanisms in view of the situation there, and did not exclude officials, inmates both male and female from dialogue and discussion in order to reach to accurate conclusions that help deepen the correct field curricula, as well as reform failures, shortcomings and missing conditions in a country that chose the political democratic system under the rule of law which requires respect for rights and freedoms, including freedom of expression under any circumstances.
The delegation was keen on field inspection and inquiring about the discovery methodology of the officials of the two reformatory houses, as well as the inmates both males and females, to reach the reality of the situation there noting that Hammurabi Human Rights Organization has a pioneering experience in this regard. A team has visited the women's prison in Baghdad in 2012 and that the inspection visit resulted in a report that was of great importance reflecting the organization's commitment to its human rights responsibilities as well as its commitment to the necessary standards required by field monitoring according to the international conditions in this regard and contained significant positive echoes internally and internationally.
