The Bar Human Rights Committee (BHRC) expresses deep concern at the decision of the Iraqi government to transform Camp Liberty, a former US base in Baghdad into a temporary prison to house Camp Ashraf residents. The residents of Camp Ashraf, situated 60km North of Baghdad in the Diyala province of Iraq, are Iranian refugees, all of whom have been recognised as Protected Persons under the Fourth Geneva Convention.
