The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights stipulates that prisoners deprived of their liberty should be treated with humanity and with respect for the dignity of the human personality.
As for Iraq, which has about 80,000 prisoners, they are deprived of their most basic rights, as was recently raised in political and popular circles on the issue of poor food and drink provided to prisoners in those prisons, which do not rise to the minimum human standards. 
Therefore, NIHR calls on the Parliamentary Human Rights Committee to intensify the monitoring and documentation of humanitarian violations and legal violations committed against prisoners and detainees in Iraqi prisons in order to reduce these violations.
