Hey! It’s that time again and as in previous years, all November, December and January profits from the sale of Tim’s beloved sentimental Christmas song, White Wine In The Sun, will go to the National Autistic Society (NAS).

"Given the weaknesses of the Iraqi justice system, and the current environment in Iraq, I am gravely concerned that innocent people have been and may continue to be convicted and executed, resulting in gross, irreversible miscarriages of justice,” said our High Commissioner Zeid.

Monitoring by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) & our Iraq Office has revealed a consistent failure to respect due process and fair trial standards, including a reliance on torture to extract confessions. UNAMI and our Office have also noted the lack of transparency, with the authorities failing to provide timely public information on executions. The implementation of sentences handed down by courts, including death sentences, is a matter of public interest. Executions, if implemented, should be carried out in a transparent manner with full public disclosure in conformity with due process obligations.

On 6 July, the Iraqi Minister of Justice announced that 45 death sentences have been carried out since the beginning of 2016, that three more executions were forthcoming, and that amendments to the legal framework to accelerate the implementation of death sentences would be put to the Iraqi Parliament. On 23 July, the Prime Minister announced the establishment of the committee. An estimated 1,200 individuals are on death row in Iraq, including possibly hundreds who have exhausted appeals processes and have received the final decree of the President. The Government of Iraq has not publicly confirmed these figures and usually only announces that executions have taken place long after the event.

“Fast-tracking executions will only accelerate injustice,” Zeid said. “The Iraqi people deserve justice. I strongly urge the Government not to take any actions that may further weaken the administration of justice and diminish the rights of those subject to criminal legal procedures.”

Hey Google, you know there's something wrong when Facebook and Yahoo both rate higher than you on the annual +Electronic Frontier Foundation 'Who Has Your Back' report.

The missing star for 'Discloses policies on data retention' is particularly disturbing.
