Baghdad, 2 June 2014 – The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq (SRSG), Mr. Nickolay Mladenov said he was horrified by the murder last week of a teenage bride in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. 

 

“The Kurdish Regional Government is committed to protecting women and girls from all forms of violence against them, and to prosecuting perpetrators to the fullest extent of the law. I urge all to stand firm against such barbaric acts that cannot be justified in any cultural or religious tradition”, the SRSG added.
