The human rights group, Human Rights Watch (HRW) on Thursday criticized the Iraqi prison authorities for arresting thousands of men, women and children in cramped jails in a “poor” state of the art with bad service.

HRW said they had pictures in the Tal Keif prison in Nineveh province as well as similar facilities in Faisaliyah and Tasfirat which were deemed not to meet international basic standards.

A picture shows dozens of junior teenagers in juvenile detention centers, some of which are bending so much that they do not see space on the floor.

While another picture shows a room filled with women and children with clothes and plastic containers hanging on the wall.

“Two years ago, we documented death in custody only because of the overcrowding.

“To see this continuing situation, the prisoners are still in danger. It’s very disappointing, “said Iraqi HRW researcher, Belkis Wille.

According to HRW, Tal Keif, Faisaliyah and Tasfirat detention centers jailed some 4,500 people convicted of alleged violence.

Almost a third of the prisoners have been convicted and were supposed to be transferred from three prisons to the north to the capital, some for six months.
