Human Rights Watch report (2009).

Accoring to Human Rights Watch, the situation for LGBT people in Iraq is very worrying. The report describes how sexual minorities have been further marginalized during the war, especially by the Mahdi army who have killed and tortured LGBT persons. Through interviews with marginalized sexual minoritites HRW documents the problems and stress that the political leaders of Iraq must react to those.

HRW points to the Arab Charter on Human Rights, adopted in 1994 by the Council of the League of Arab States, of which Iraq is a member, which states in article 5 that “Every individual has the right to life, liberty and security of person. These rights shall be protected by law.”

Therefore the Iraqi authorities are obliged not to ignore known threats to the life of people within their jurisdiction, and to take reasonable and appropriate measures to protect LGBT persons. HRW ends the report by listing recommendations to the political leaders and the military.

This report from Human Rights Watch results from research conducted between May 2012 and April 2013 by Human
Rights Watch and Wake Up and Step Forward Network (WASO), a Dar es Salaam-based
network of groups that represent men who have sex with men. It documents human rights
violations experienced by sex workers, people who use drugs, and lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgender, and intersex people (LGBTI), including MSM. It also exposes the very
troubling situation of sexual exploitation of children in sex work. The report highlights two
main categories of human rights violations: those for which law enforcement officials bear
primary responsibility, and those within the health sector.
