Human Rights Watch warned European countries on Tuesday against transferring hundreds of ISIS suspects from the prisons of Kurdish fighters in Syria to Iraq.
The organization expressed concern that "some European countries that do not want to retrieve their nationals suspected of seeking to transfer to Iraq, after an attack launched by Ankara about a week ago against Kurdish fighters in Syria, fearing that they could escape from prisons."
"Given Iraq's record of unfair trials, European countries should not push for efforts to transfer their nationals" to Iraq for trial, said Bilqis Wali, an Iraq researcher.
She considered that any government that supports this step, "without taking the necessary measures to prevent them from being at risk of torture, or a false trial or execution, thus contributing to serious violations."
The organization, which tracks the trials of suspected members of the extremist organization in Iraq, says that these judicial procedures are unfair and punctuated by many violations.
The group urged France, Denmark, Germany, Britain and other countries to recover their nationals rather than transfer them to Iraq.
Many countries earlier transferred some of their national suspects to Iraq for trial.
During the summer, Iraqi courts sentenced 11 French nationals arrested in Syria and tried in Iraq to death for belonging to the Islamic State.
The Kurdish self-administration in northeastern Syria recently renewed fears that its involvement in fighting Turkish forces would negatively affect its efforts to maintain security in detention centers and camps, which include thousands of ISIS fighters and their families.
SDF forces are holding 12,000 ISIS operatives, including 2,500 to 3,000 foreigners from 54 countries.
Several European countries have also expressed grave concern about the repercussions of a possible Turkish attack on the battle against IS cells, which are still active through dormant cells despite its field defeat by Kurdish fighters.
The self-administration announced on Sunday that 785 families of foreign jihadists had fled the Ain Issa camp in the northern countryside of Raqqa after Turkish shelling near it. It also accused the Turkish forces of targeting at least two prisons where the fighters of the organization are located.
