Manfred Nowar admits that he has never visited Iraq, but he bases his afirmations on interviews.
"What most people tell you is that the situation as far as torture is concerned now in Iraq is totally out of hand. The situation is so bad many people say it is worse than it has been in the times of Saddam Hussein," said the UN's anti-torture expert.
The UN's report, presented in Geneva, outlines that nearly 7,000 people were killed in Iraq in the last two months, from July to August. This is the higher number of crimes committed in such a short notice and situation is "totally out of hand".
Acts of violence are committed not only by anti-US insurgents, but also by security forces.
The above mentioned report outlines the corpses found at the morgue in Iraq's capital "often bear signs of severe torture including acid-induced injuries and burns caused by chemical substances."
He also remembered to mention that the detainee conditions in Guantanamo Bay need serious improvement so that the human's rights are respected.
Manfred Nowar says visiting Iraq would definitely help him understand the situation better, but he hasn't received an official invitation yet.
The UN's anti-torture expert is currently preparing a mission in North Ossetia and Chechnya, that is about to take place in October. Indonesia is next in Manfred Nowar's agenda.
