    Shafaq News/ Human Rights Watch said today, Thursday, that environmental activists in Iraq are subject to threats, harassment, and arbitrary detention by members of the government and armed groups.
    On 16 February 2023, prominent Iraqi environmental activist Jassim Al-Asadi was released after being kidnapped on 1 February by an unidentified armed group and held for more than two weeks.



    Al-Asadi said in a televised interview that he was subjected to "the most severe types of torture" using "electricity and sticks" during his captivity, and he was transferred from one place to another.
    In a report published today, Rights Watch said that it confirmed with the al-Asadi family that the voice in the interview was his, and it appears that his release came after the intervention of the Iraqi government. It seems stop their activities.
    Adam Coogle, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch, said: “Instead of the Iraqi government taking concrete steps to solve the core environmental issues in Iraq, it is attacking those who talk about these issues. Excluding the environmental movement in the country will only lead to The deterioration of Iraq's ability to deal with its environmental crises, which affect a group of vital rights.
    Government agencies have detained and prosecuted other activists for speaking out about environmental problems. Salman Khairallah, another environmental activist and co-founder of Humat Dijla, said he believes armed groups and Iraqi officials are targeting key members of the environmental movement to silence them and send a threatening message to others.
    In November 2022, the organization released a report documenting how the Iraqi authorities have failed to hold accountable state security agents and state-backed armed groups responsible for the killing, maiming, and disappearance of hundreds of protesters and activists since 2019.
    Human Rights Watch said Iraqi authorities should immediately hold accountable those responsible for extrajudicial punishments, such as kidnapping, stop using the justice system to harass and retaliate against environmental activists, and drop all legal cases against them involving abuse.
