Ban Ki-moon report raises concerns over Camp Ashraf situation

6 December 2010: The UN Secretary General raised worries about the situation of Camp Ashraf, Iraq, in a report to the Security Council in the context of resolution 1936 this week. In his report, the Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon says, the Iraqi “Government has banned a number of items from entering the camp, such as building materials, metal pipes and plumbing supplies, herbicides, insecticides and poisons for pest control. Additionally, a number of checkpoints have been established within the camp and more loudspeakers installed in the east and south of the camp to broadcast messages to the residents.” The report points to several instances when Iraqi forces perpetrated violence against the residents of Ashraf and injured some of them. It adds, “UNAMI has called for restraint on both sides, respect for human rights and humanitarian standards.” According to Article 1 of the report, In paragraph 6 of Security Council resolution 1936 (2010), the Security Council requested the Secretary-General to report to the Council every four months on the progress made towards the fulfilment of the responsibilities of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI). The present report is the first submitted pursuant to that resolution.”
