ILA - Camp Liberty in no way has the facilities to house 3400 individuals. The water, electricity and sewage problems have yet to be resolved and any construction or the entry of building materials is banned. Water has to be brought in by tankers every day. The electricity is supplied by generators which are in bad conditions. However, the Generators were prevented from being transferred from Ashraf to Liberty.
There are no concrete or asphalt routes in Liberty, and all that exist are mud roads, and this is especially intolerable for the injured and ill residents.
The camp's inner courtyards and roads are paved with gravel which is an insurmountable restriction for the sick and handicapped who cannot traverse in such conditions and are confined to their living quarters. The health of the handicapped and wounded will certainly deteriorate as a result of such circumstances. The greater majority of them were shot and handicapped by the Iraqi forces.
The Iraqi government prevented them from building a simple route in Liberty for the sick and handicapped.
Sadegh Mohammad Kazem, one of the main elements of this committee who is also under prosecution by the Spanish National Court for his role in the April 8, 2011 massacre of Ashraf residents, is controlling everything in the Camp and prevents the residents from entering any items needed for reconstruction or maintenance of the infrastructures inside Camp Liberty. ** **
During the inspection of Ashraf residents' personal belongings, they were banned from taking many of their personal belongings. Special chairs for the ill, bicycles, desks, kitchen utensils, basic tools, microwaves, wheelchairs, refrigerator, freezer, public service vehicles, different kinds of power generators, forklift trucks, and water heater were among the items that were prevented from being transferred during the inspection.
Please watch interviews with handicapped and ill people of Ashraf:
