Dear list members, The FCO today published a report entitled: "SADDAM HUSSEIN: crimes and human rights abuses. A report on the human cost of Saddam's policies by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office" Strangely, it does not seem to be available on the FCO website, but it can be obtained from the US State Department's website: http://usinfo.state.gov/regional/nea/iraq/hrdossier.pdf (197K) It is harrowing reading, mainly collated from reports that are already publicly available. There is one item I would like to ask about: "Under Saddam Hussein's regime women lack even the basic right to life. A 1990 decree allows male relatives to kill a female relative in the name of honour without any punishment." (p. 8) Does anyone have further information about this?
