Video: Basra jails 'packed with prisoners'

Basra jails
The prisons in Basra Governorate are packed with inmates, which will lead to a humanitarian disaster as the temperatures sometimes hit 50 ºC, a video obtained by the Baghdad Post revealed Saturday.

Most of the prisoners spent years in the jail without any accusations. Others face fabricated charges on political and sectarian motives.  

There are grave violations and abuses committed against inmates in Iraqi prisons, experts and watchdogs say.

According to Human Rights Watch, over the past three years, more than 9,000 have been sent to jail on ISIS-related charges.
