  • Unfair ISIS Trial in Iraq Hands Women Harshest Sentences

The central criminal court issued the sentences "after it was proven they belong to the Daesh (IS) terrorist group and they confessed to marrying Daesh elements or providing members of the group with logistical aid or helping them carry out terrorist attacks", said Judge Abdul-Sattar al-Birqdar.

Thousands of foreign women joined ISIS after the group tore through northern Iraq in 2014 and seized almost a third of the country's territory.

"Many foreign women came - or were brought - from overseas to join the militants", Reuters reports.

Also, the Iraqi authorities handed over four women and 27 children of Islamic State families to Russian Federation, after they all were acquitted of charges of involvement in terrorist activities against civilians and forces, the Iraqi foreign ministry was quoted as saying by IANS.

It is the latest round of harsh punishment handed down in connection with ongoing trials of hundreds of foreign women detained since August. "She is also convicted of complicity in attacking Iraqi security forces", Biraqdar said.

Iraq has detained at least 560 women and 600 children identified as militants or relatives of ISIS militants. The French news agency also contended that 16 of them had been recently sentenced to death by an Iraqi court.

"The court has issued a death sentence in relation to the accused women in accordance with the counterterrorism law", the statement read.

Since then, the law in Iraq has dealt severely with those who were a part of the terror outfit, imposing life imprisonment and even the death penalty, sparing not even women. In total, officials estimate that more than 20,000 people are being held in prison for membership to a terrorist organization.

Baghdad declared military victory over ISIS in December, after having expelled the jihadists from all urban centers they had held in northern and western Iraq since 2014.

Human rights organizations and observers contend that the legal process in Iraq is not fair. It suggests that the Iraqi authorities "should develop a national strategy to prioritize the prosecution of those who committed the most serious crimes".
