Iraqi court gives death penalty to Turkish women

Unfair ISIS Trial in Iraq Hands Women Harshest Sentences

The Iraqi Criminal Court yesterday sentenced 15 Turkish women to death for belonging to Daesh.

Just last month, a German citizen was sentenced to death in Iraq for providing Daesh with logistics aid.

At least 16 Turkish women were sentenced to death by an Iraqi court for joining the Islamic State militant group, a judiciary spokesman said on Sunday.Iraq is conducting trials of hundreds of foreign women detained with hundreds of their children for supporting or joining the group as its strongholds crumble, the Guardian reported.

Iraq has handed over to Russian Federation four women and 27 children suspected of having ties to the group, the foreign ministry said on Thursday, adding that they were "tricked" into joining the militants. One woman told the judge that she had actively taken part in the fighting.

Last week, a Turkish woman was sentenced to death for membership in the terrorist organization. A lot of them have been either sentenced to life term imprisonment or given the death penalty.

Several rights groups have condemned Iraq's treatment of suspected militants, pointing to inhumane prison conditions and a judicial process which does adhere to worldwide standards.

In December, the Iraqi authorities declared a full victory over the group, which captured almost one-third of the country's territory in 2014.

Under Iraq's anti-terror law, anyone found guilty of joining IS can be handed the death penalty, including non-combatants.

Biraqdar said the woman, whose identity was not disclosed, had confessed during investigations that she traveled from Germany to Syria and then to Iraq, because she had a strong belief in ISIS. It also argues that in cases where a suspect is claimed to be a Daesh member "without evidence of any other serious crime, authorities should consider alternatives to criminal prosecution". "The Iraqi courts need to redirect their priorities".
