ERBIL-Hewlęr, Kurdistan region 'Iraq', — Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) in Iraq's north does not maintain any secret prisons, a spokesperson said Tuesday.

The refutation comes after the United Nations said in a new report that UN teams have visited prisons in Kurdistan where they have seen people imprisoned without trials or even without official charges. And the report suggested there were secret prisons in the region.

“The KRG has made vital steps when it comes to prisons. It has built big prisons that are open to the international organizations [for inspection], though some of the prisons are still crowded for which there are ongoing efforts for solutions.” said Dindar Zebari, a spokesperson for the KRG’s Foreign Relations Office.

“Ther are no secret prisons and no one has been imprisoned on political grounds… prisoners are treated well. We have called on the UN,
www.ekurd.net EU, and international organizations that if they have information that points to secret prisons in Kurdistan region, they can directly visit the locations to verify the info”
