The following statement was issued today by the Spokesperson of UN Secretary-General António Guterres:

The Secretary-General has been following closely the recent waves of street demonstrations in several countries around the world.


It is deeply concerned that some of these demonstrations have led to violence and, regrettably, in some cases to loss of life and serious injury.


The Secretary-General reiterates that freedom of expression and peaceful assembly are fundamental rights that must be respected. Respect for these rights is one of the cornerstones of our society and is essential for advancing democracy, development and peace.


The Secretary-General reiterates his appeal to the security forces to act with maximum restraint at all times and to respond to any acts of violence in accordance with relevant international human rights standards on the use of force by the police. He also calls on protesters to demonstrate peacefully and to refrain from violence.


As he said in his address to the United Nations General Assembly last week, the Secretary-General urges all States to preserve civic space and uphold human rights in order to contribute to sustainable development and to peace.

On the politicization of tomorrow's demonstrations: Let the people exercise their constitutional right - Page 2 5dde967cb1a2c18265d16490f7bd2009_L




We have seen a series of demonstrations across Iraq this week protesting against job scarcity and unequal provision of basic services. Most of the protestors are young and unemployed, demanding that their economic and social rights be respected.


We remind the Iraqi authorities that people's grievances need to be heard. The authorities have an obligation to do their utmost to support their citizens to make ends meet, including by addressing their right to employment. State authorities also need to allow people to express their grievances in a peaceful way.

We are worried by reports that security forces have used live ammunition and rubber bullets in some areas, and have also fired tear gas cannisters directly at protestors. UN human right staff have confirmed the deaths of 12 people in Baghdad. However, we have received reports – and I would stress this number is not yet verified – of up to 30 people in total being killed so far during protests in a number of towns and cities. Hundreds of other people have reportedly been injured, including members of the security forces. Dozens of demonstrators have been detained, although most were subsequently released.

We call on the Iraqi Government to allow people to freely exercise their rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly. The use of force should be exceptional, and assemblies should ordinarily be managed without resort to force. Any use of force must comply with applicable international human rights norms and standards*, including the principles of necessity and proportionality. In any event, the use of firearms is prohibited, except as a last resort to protect against an imminent threat of death or serious injury. All incidents in which the actions of security forces have resulted in death and injury should be promptly, independently and transparently investigated

We are concerned about reports that at least three journalists covering the protests have been detained, and two of them were subsequently released. These detentions risk deterring other journalists from reporting on the situation. We are also concerned by cuts in internet service in most governorates across the country. Blanket internet shutdowns are likely to contravene freedom of expression, unduly restricting the right to receive and impart information and may exacerbate tensions.

Basic Principles on the Use of Force and Firearms by Law Enforcement Officials



Adopted by the Eighth United Nations Congress on the Prevention of Crime and the Treatment of Offenders, Havana, Cuba,
27 August to 7 September 1990






Whereas the work of law enforcement officials is a social service of great importance and there is, therefore, a need to maintain and, whenever necessary, to improve the working conditions and status of these officials,
Whereas a threat to the life and safety of law enforcement officials must be seen as a threat to the stability of society as a whole,


Whereas law enforcement officials have a vital role in the protection of the right to life, liberty and security of the person, as guaranteed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and reaffirmed in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights,


Whereas the Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners provide for the circumstances in which prison officials may use force in the course of their duties,


Whereas article 3 of the Code of Conduct for Law Enforcement Officials provides that law enforcement officials may use force only when strictly necessary and to the extent required for the performance of their duty,


Whereas the preparatory meeting for the Seventh United Nations Congress on the Prevention of Crime and the Treatment of Offenders, held at Varenna, Italy, agreed on elements to be considered in the course of further work on restraints on the use of force and firearms by law enforcement officials,


Whereas the Seventh Congress, in its resolution 14, inter alia , emphasizes that the use of force and firearms by law enforcement officials should be commensurate with due respect for human rights,


Whereas the Economic and Social Council, in its resolution 1986/10, section IX, of 21 May 1986, invited Member States to pay particular attention in the implementation of the Code to the use of force and firearms by law enforcement officials, and the General Assembly, in its resolution 41/149 of 4 December 1986, inter alia , welcomed this recommendation made by the Council,


Whereas it is appropriate that, with due regard to their personal safety, consideration be given to the role of law enforcement officials in relation to the administration of justice, to the protection of the right to life, liberty and security of the person, to their responsibility to maintain public safety and social peace and to the importance of their qualifications, training and conduct,


The basic principles set forth below, which have been formulated to assist Member States in their task of ensuring and promoting the proper role of law enforcement officials, should be taken into account and respected by Governments within the framework of their national legislation and practice, and be brought to the attention of law enforcement officials as well as other persons, such as judges, prosecutors, lawyers, members of the executive branch and the legislature, and the public.


General provisions


1. Governments and law enforcement agencies shall adopt and implement rules and regulations on the use of force and firearms against persons by law enforcement officials. In developing such rules and regulations, Governments and law enforcement agencies shall keep the ethical issues associated with the use of force and firearms constantly under review.


2. Governments and law enforcement agencies should develop a range of means as broad as possible and equip law enforcement officials with various types of weapons and ammunition that would allow for a differentiated use of force and firearms. These should include the development of non-lethal incapacitating weapons for use in appropriate situations, with a view to increasingly restraining the application of means capable of causing death or injury to persons. For the same purpose, it should also be possible for law enforcement officials to be equipped with self-defensive equipment such as shields, helmets, bullet-proof vests and bullet-proof means of transportation, in order to decrease the need to use weapons of any kind.


3. The development and deployment of non-lethal incapacitating weapons should be carefully evaluated in order to minimize the risk of endangering uninvolved persons, and the use of such weapons should be carefully controlled.


4. Law enforcement officials, in carrying out their duty, shall, as far as possible, apply non-violent means before resorting to the use of force and firearms. They may use force and firearms only if other means remain ineffective or without any promise of achieving the intended result.


5. Whenever the lawful use of force and firearms is unavoidable, law enforcement officials shall:


(a) Exercise restraint in such use and act in proportion to the seriousness of the offence and the legitimate objective to be achieved;


(b) Minimize damage and injury, and respect and preserve human life;


(c) Ensure that assistance and medical aid are rendered to any injured or affected persons at the earliest possible moment;


(d) Ensure that relatives or close friends of the injured or affected person are notified at the earliest possible moment.


6. Where injury or death is caused by the use of force and firearms by law enforcement officials, they shall report the incident promptly to their superiors, in accordance with principle 22.


7. Governments shall ensure that arbitrary or abusive use of force and firearms by law enforcement officials is punished as a criminal offence under their law.


8. Exceptional circumstances such as internal political instability or any other public emergency may not be invoked to justify any departure from these basic principles.


Special provisions


9. Law enforcement officials shall not use firearms against persons except in self-defence or defence of others against the imminent threat of death or serious injury, to prevent the perpetration of a particularly serious crime involving grave threat to life, to arrest a person presenting such a danger and resisting their authority, or to prevent his or her escape, and only when less extreme means are insufficient to achieve these objectives. In any event, intentional lethal use of firearms may only be made when strictly unavoidable in order to protect life.


10. In the circumstances provided for under principle 9, law enforcement officials shall identify themselves as such and give a clear warning of their intent to use firearms, with sufficient time for the warning to be observed, unless to do so would unduly place the law enforcement officials at risk or would create a risk of death or serious harm to other persons, or would be clearly inappropriate or pointless in the circumstances of the incident.


11. Rules and regulations on the use of firearms by law enforcement officials should include guidelines that:


(a) Specify the circumstances under which law enforcement officials are authorized to carry firearms and prescribe the types of firearms and ammunition permitted;


(b) Ensure that firearms are used only in appropriate circumstances and in a manner likely to decrease the risk of unnecessary harm;


(c) Prohibit the use of those firearms and ammunition that cause unwarranted injury or present an unwarranted risk;


(d) Regulate the control, storage and issuing of firearms, including procedures for ensuring that law enforcement officials are accountable for the firearms and ammunition issued to them;


(e) Provide for warnings to be given, if appropriate, when firearms are to be discharged;


(f) Provide for a system of reporting whenever law enforcement officials use firearms in the performance of their duty.


Policing unlawful assemblies


12. As everyone is allowed to participate in lawful and peaceful assemblies, in accordance with the principles embodied in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, Governments and law enforcement agencies and officials shall recognize that force and firearms may be used only in accordance with principles 13 and 14.


13. In the dispersal of assemblies that are unlawful but non-violent, law enforcement officials shall avoid the use of force or, where that is not practicable, shall restrict such force to the minimum extent necessary.


14. In the dispersal of violent assemblies, law enforcement officials may use firearms only when less dangerous means are not practicable and only to the minimum extent necessary. Law enforcement officials shall not use firearms in such cases, except under the conditions stipulated in principle 9.




Policing persons in custody or detention


15. Law enforcement officials, in their relations with persons in custody or detention, shall not use force, except when strictly necessary for the maintenance of security and order within the institution, or when personal safety is threatened.

16. Law enforcement officials, in their relations with persons in custody or detention, shall not use firearms, except in self-defence or in the defence of others against the immediate threat of death or serious injury, or when strictly necessary to prevent the escape of a person in custody or detention presenting the danger referred to in principle 9.

17. The preceding principles are without prejudice to the rights, duties and responsibilities of prison officials, as set out in the Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners, particularly rules 33, 34 and 54.


Qualifications, training and counselling



18. Governments and law enforcement agencies shall ensure that all law enforcement officials are selected by proper screening procedures, have appropriate moral, psychological and physical qualities for the effective exercise of their functions and receive continuous and thorough professional training. Their continued fitness to perform these functions should be subject to periodic review.

19. Governments and law enforcement agencies shall ensure that all law enforcement officials are provided with training and are tested in accordance with appropriate proficiency standards in the use of force. Those law enforcement officials who are required to carry firearms should be authorized to do so only upon completion of special training in their use.

20. In the training of law enforcement officials, Governments and law enforcement agencies shall give special attention to issues of police ethics and human rights, especially in the investigative process, to alternatives to the use of force and firearms, including the peaceful settlement of conflicts, the understanding of crowd behaviour, and the methods of persuasion, negotiation and mediation, as well as to technical means, with a view to limiting the use of force and firearms. Law enforcement agencies should review their training programmes and operational procedures in the light of particular incidents.

21. Governments and law enforcement agencies shall make stress counselling available to law enforcement officials who are involved in situations where force and firearms are used.

Reporting and review procedures


22. Governments and law enforcement agencies shall establish effective reporting and review procedures for all incidents referred to in principles 6 and 11 (f). For incidents reported pursuant to these principles, Governments and law enforcement agencies shall ensure that an effective review process is available and that independent administrative or prosecutorial authorities are in a position to exercise jurisdiction in appropriate circumstances. In cases of death and serious injury or other grave consequences, a detailed report shall be sent promptly to the competent authorities responsible for administrative review and judicial control.

23. Persons affected by the use of force and firearms or their legal representatives shall have access to an independent process, including a judicial process. In the event of the death of such persons, this provision shall apply to their dependants accordingly.

24. Governments and law enforcement agencies shall ensure that superior officers are held responsible if they know, or should have known, that law enforcement officials under their command are resorting, or have resorted, to the unlawful use of force and firearms, and they did not take all measures in their power to prevent, suppress or report such use.

25. Governments and law enforcement agencies shall ensure that no criminal or disciplinary sanction is imposed on law enforcement officials who, in compliance with the Code of Conduct for Law Enforcement Officials and these basic principles, refuse to carry out an order to use force and firearms, or who report such use by other officials.


26. Obedience to superior orders shall be no defence if law enforcement officials knew that an order to use force and firearms resulting in the death or serious injury of a person was manifestly unlawful and had a reasonable opportunity to refuse to follow it. In any case, responsibility also rests on the superiors who gave the unlawful orders.

BAGHDAD - Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said in a telephone conversation with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that security forces were in control of the country and restoring stability, and the government continued to introduce a package of reforms to meet protesters' demands.

This comes as 15 people were killed in clashes between security forces and anti-government protesters in the neighborhood of Sadr City in eastern Baghdad.

Abdul-Mahdi said that the security forces were able to control the anti-government protests, stressing the commitment to proceed with reforms to meet the demands of the protesters.

For his part, the US Secretary of State expressed confidence in the Iraqi forces, stressing the position of the United States in support of Iraq and the government's efforts to promote security and stability.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Clashes between security forces and anti-government protesters killed at least 15 people in Baghdad's eastern Sadr City district, raising the death toll from violence that began a week ago to at least 110, police and medics said on Monday.

The army said it would pull out of the sprawling residential neighborhood east of the Iraqi capital and hand over control to police in an apparent effort to ease tensions.

In a warning tone, the head of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Commission, Faleh al-Fayyad, said Monday that the Popular Mobilization is ready to foil any plot against the country's security.

"We will not allow anyone to tamper with the blood of our children and the security of our country," he told a news conference, noting that there was no room for a coup or insurgency, and Iraq would not be governed by a particular sect.

"We want to overthrow corruption and we do not want to overthrow the regime," he said, adding that they were defending a constitution built with blood and sacrifices.

In an attempt to calm the Iraqi street, the authorities said they would hold accountable security personnel who acted wrongly in their violent confrontation with protesters.

The protests began on Tuesday from Baghdad to demand better public services, jobs and corruption, before spreading to southern Shi'ite provinces.

The demonstrators raised the ceiling of their demands and are calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, after the security forces resorted to violence to contain the protests.

Protesters accuse the security forces of firing at them, while the latter denies this and says that "unidentified snipers" shoot protesters and security personnel alike to create strife.

More than 110 people were killed and thousands injured, according to medical sources.

For years, Iraqis have been protesting against poor basic public services such as electricity, health and water, as well as unemployment and corruption, in one of the world's most corrupt countries, according to Transparency International's index over the past years.

British Ambassador to Iraq: Demonstrators' demands have been waiting for a long time and it is legitimate


08/10/2019





On the politicization of tomorrow's demonstrations: Let the people exercise their constitutional right - Page 2 %D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B3%D9%81%D9%8A%D8%B1-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A8%D8%B1%D8%B7%D8%A7%D9%86%D9%8A-%D8%A8%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B9%D8%B1%D8%A7%D9%82-660x330










(Independent) .. The British ambassador in Baghdad sent a series of letters to the Iraqi government concerning the bloody protests that lasted for the past week.

"There is no need for conspiracy theories," John Wilkes said in a tweet. Iraq must protect Iraqis through national security forces. ”

The protests in Baghdad and other cities have left 110 people dead, mostly protesters, demanding the dismissal of the government and reforms including its political elite.

The unrest over the past week has suddenly ended a two-year relative calm that Iraq has not seen since the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003. Many Iraqis, especially young people, say widespread corruption in the government is denying them the benefit of restoring stability after years of foreign occupation and sectarian fighting.

Many have criticized the government's violent response to the protests, saying they have fueled public anger.

Internet services were cut off for days, disrupting communications and contributing to widespread discontent. These services returned for a few hours on Monday evening and some published coverage of recent protests on social media before the service was stopped again. (The end)

"This is a fitna and a crime that cannot be tolerated. The blood of our people and our security forces is not subject to bidding, nor for adventures and our trust in our people is absolute and every outlaw must submit to the authority, law and judiciary of the state," he said.
Saleh pointed out that "there are those who speak of foreign support for events and we do not say that no one wants and has an interest in sowing discord between the same people inevitably there are interests that want to invest every gap and every problem and each rivalry within our country, but the basis is the will of the living people, we must All of us officials, parties, civil servants, activists, intellectuals and citizens argue that this movement and this protest came against the backdrop of misery, grievances and the general feeling that the country needs reform.

"
The supreme authority held the government "responsible when armed elements outside the law, under the gaze of the security forces, targeting and hunting demonstrators, assaulting certain media in order to frighten its workers, is also responsible when its security elements do not protect citizens, government institutions and private property from attacks by a small number of demonstrators."

Alsumaria News publishes the full text of the position of the supreme religious authority in Iraq, Mr. Sistani, against the "violence" used against demonstrators and recent events in the country.


It followed Sistani statement, his representative in Karbala , Sheikh Abdul Mahdi Karbalai, during a Friday sermon in Karbala on 11.10.2019 and stated:


In a speech last Friday the religious authority confirmed the condemnation and rejection of the attacks suffered by demonstrators , Peaceful and many of the elements of the security forces, During the protests in the country last week, it also condemned the burning and destruction of some government institutions and private property in those demonstrations. She hoped that everyone would be aware of the serious repercussions of the use of violence and counter-violence in the ongoing protest movement in the country, which would in any case be avoided.






But what has happened in the following days is the unprecedented escalation of violence and the targeting of increasing numbers of demonstrators by shooting them, and blatant attacks on some media to prevent them from transferring what is happening in the yards of demonstrations.

While the official authorities announced that they had issued strict orders to prevent the security forces from shooting live demonstrators, thousands of them fell between a martyr and wounded in Baghdad, Nasiriyah, Diwaniyah and others, direct targeting them of firearms in full view of many, in horrific scenes of extreme cruelty beyond imagination And exceeded all limits.


The government and its security services are responsible for the heavy bloodshed that has been shed in the demonstrations of the past few days, whether by innocent citizens or security elements charged with dealing with them, and can not shirk this responsibility.

It is responsible when some members of the security forces use excessive violence against demonstrators, albeit because of their lack of discipline, obeying orders or because they are not qualified and trained to deal with popular protests so as to avoid casualties among participants.

It is responsible when outlawed armed elements, under the watchful eye of the security forces, target and shoot protesters, and attack certain media outlets to intimidate their workers.

It is responsible when its security forces do not protect citizens, government institutions, and private property from attacks by a small number of demonstrators who did not want them to remain peaceful and free from violence.

The religious authority strongly condemns the shedding of innocent blood and grave attacks in its various forms, and expresses its sympathy with the families of the martyrs and the wounded and wounded, and affirms its solidarity with the legitimate demands of peaceful demonstrators - as demonstrated in the demonstrations of previous years also - calls for the strong government and the judiciary Conduct a credible investigation into all that took place in the demonstration yards, and then disclose to the public the elements that ordered or started shooting at demonstrators or others, and not hesitate to pursue them, arrest them and bring them to justice, whatever their affiliation and location. This must be done within a specified period - for example, two weeks - and not be procrastinated, as in the announcement of the results of the investigative committees in previous cases.

This is the most important and urgent measure at the present time, which reveals the seriousness of the government and the sincerity of its intention to take wide steps for real reform. No reform project - including the fight against financial and administrative corruption and a degree of social justice - can be pursued unless the prestige of the state is enforced, security is controlled in accordance with its legal contexts, the infringement of public and private freedoms guaranteed by the constitution, and an end to those who threaten, beat and abduct They snipe and kill while they are free from prosecution and accountability.

The supreme religious authority has no special interest or relationship with any party in power, and is biased only to the people and defends only its interests, and confirms what it stated in April 2006 at the formation of the government after the first parliamentary elections Or hand in the public interests of the Iraqi people, it monitors the performance of the government and indicate the imbalances in it when necessary, and will remain its voice with the voices of the oppressed and deprived of the people of this people wherever they are without distinction between their affiliations and their sects and ethnicities). There's no strength except in Allah Almighty.

In a statement to UNAMI, Plasskhart also expressed "deep concern at the attempt by armed entities to impede the people's right to peaceful assembly and their legitimate demands."

"The protection of human lives is always the first priority," she said.

She pointed out that Iraq has come a long way and will not bear the slide back into a new cycle of violence, adding that it is sad and disturbing to see the return of violence and the fall of the dead and wounded.
She also criticized restrictions on social media as well as intermittent Internet service, but welcomed the help of the security forces. “Unlike in the beginning of October,” demonstrators were wounded and concerned about the freedom of movement of medical units.


It called on all parties to redouble their efforts on the ground not only to prevent provocative actions and unnecessary confrontations, but also to stand together against armed saboteurs.

She stressed that the United Nations stands ready to assist, including supporting the Iraqi authorities in their efforts to meet legitimate demands for change, accountability and transparency, ending corruption, improving public services, strengthening governance and creating an environment conducive to growth and employment.

On developments on the ground, one person was killed and 16 others were injured today following renewed protests in the city of (Nasiriyah), the largest city of the province, after a bloody day witnessed 30 deaths and wounding more than two thousand others in Baghdad and other Iraqi provinces.

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - UN human rights experts on Wednesday urged Iraqi authorities to immediately stop and stop violence against demonstrators and ensure that those responsible for the unlawful use of force are investigated and prosecuted.


It is crucial that the Iraqi authorities take additional steps to prevent violence and provide a safe environment for peaceful protests, a UN report said today.

In two waves of protests from October 1 to 9 and October 25 to 27, more than 220 civilians were killed and thousands wounded after Iraqi security forces used excessive force to disperse protesters, including the use of live ammunition and bullets, Inflatables and armored vehicles. Experts said there was also a random use of less lethal weapons such as tear gas, water cannons and sound bombs.






According to the statement, since October 25, Iraqi security forces, particularly in Baghdad, appear to have shown more restraint compared to previous demonstrations, however, reports continued to report excessive use of less deadly means of protesters, causing a number of Of injuries plus a number of deaths. Most of the injuries occurred at the end of the week as a result of tear gas inhalation.


The situation in some southern governorates, in which armed individuals used live bullets against demonstrators while protecting political offices, requires urgent attention.

"We strongly deplore the use of excessive force and violence by Iraqi security forces and other armed elements against demonstrators," the experts said. "It is unreasonable and saddening - that such a brutal response is directed against Iraqis who simply want to express their rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly

," the experts stressed . "The Iraqi state has a responsibility to search for, investigate and prosecute those responsible for the killing of demonstrators."

People in cities and provinces across central and southern Iraq, including central Baghdad, have demonstrated against high levels of unemployment, corruption and poor public services. Many participants were young and unemployed.

On October 22, 2019, a government commission of inquiry into the violence that erupted in early October found that 149 civilians and eight security men had been killed, 70 per cent of them in the head or upper torso. The government report, inter alia, acknowledged that security forces used excessive force and lost control of demonstrations and recommended disciplinary and judicial investigations against identified perpetrators, but concluded that there were no official orders to open fire on protesters.

"While we take note of the findings of the commission of inquiry, we deeply regret the further violence, loss of life and injuries during the weekend," the experts said.

"The government must demonstrate the effectiveness, independence and impartiality of these investigations. This means that they must identify all the perpetrators with a view to prosecuting them. This also applies to officials who fail to prevent such abuses in the first place,"

they stressed. Issued in early October by snipers shooting at both demonstrators and those who tried to evacuate the wounded, allegedly for breaking through security checkpoints. The identity of these snipers remained unknown.

Continued reports indicate that human rights defenders have received explicit warnings and death threats if they participate in the protests, amid allegations that security forces arbitrarily arrested and detained hundreds of protesters, journalists, and civil society activists.

They noted widespread restrictions on media freedoms, including intimidation and harassment of journalists, attacks on the media, intermittent Internet service as well as social media sites and platforms.

The statement said that experts are holding a dialogue with the Iraqi authorities on this issue and will continue to monitor the situation closely.

Special rapporteurs, independent experts and working groups form part of the so-called special procedures of the Human Rights Council. The Special Procedures are the largest body of independent experts in the UN system of rights and are the generic designation of the Council's independent mechanisms for investigation, surveillance and monitoring. Special procedures mandate-holders are human rights experts appointed by the Human Rights Council to address either specific situations in specific countries, or thematic issues worldwide. They are not UN staff and are independent of any government and organization. They provide services according to their individual abilities and are not paid for the work they do.
