Das englische abstract des Berichts können Sie hier lesen:

Torture and other ill-treatment were widespread in Iraq before the
US-led invasion in 2003 and continued in prisons and detention
facilities controlled by coalition forces and the new Iraqi
governments. Since 2004, suspects held in Iraqi custody have been
systematically tortured and dozens of detainees have died as a
result. After US forces handed over tens of thousands of prisoners
to Iraqi custody between early 2009 and July 2010 without any
guarantees that they will be protected, there is every likelihood that
torture and ill-treatment will remain widespread. Such abuses have
a devastating impact on the victims not just when they are being
tortured or ill-treated, but often for years afterwards or even for
the rest of their lives. Urgent action is needed to end the pattern
of abuse and to help the victims and their families.
