Baghdad, Dec. 05 – Iraqi women gathered outside a political party headquarters in Baghdad protesting secret prisons and torture chambers run by Iraq’s Interior Ministry, an Iraqi television reported on Saturday.

The women gathered outside the headquarters of the Iraqi Islamic Party, al-Sharqia TV reported. They protested the detention and torture of Iraqis, in particular women, in secret prisons similar to Jaderiya Prison discovered in Baghdad.

The report said that torture and abuse of Iraqi prisoners by the officials inside the Interior Ministry with ties to Iran had caused anger and protests among the Iraqi public.

The women called for the “immediate and unconditional release of all female prisoners”. There have been reports of rape of female prisoners inside prisons under the control of the Iraqi Interior Ministry.

They also demanded an inquiry into the torture and abuse cases and demanded that those involved in torture be brought to justice.

Iraqi officials have blamed Iran’s notorious Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) for running the secret Iraqi Interior Ministry prison in Baghdad where more than 170 Iraqi prisoners were being illegally held.
