Iraqi woman who was captured by ISIS and sold as a sex slave, is now an UN goodwill ambassador

The atrocities committed by ISIS are infamous across the globe. The terrorist faction has raped, murdered and enslaved countless men, women and children. A survivor of this terror, Nadia Murad, recently testified before the UN regarding the horror she faced and brought the much needed attention of the global organisation to this issue.

Nadia Murad, who was previously raped and enslaved by ISIS, testified in December 2015, before the United Nations regarding the terror she faced. Today she has been named a UN Goodwill Ambassador on human trafficking.

Her family including six of her eight brothers were murdered in front of her, before she was seized by the ISIS and raped several times a day by different men and sold as a commodity among them.

Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney has decided to represent Nadia and several other women who have faced such an ordeal. She had demanded that ISIS be prosecuted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes against humanity.

Amal completed her Masters in Law from New York University and has worked on several high profile cases related to international law.

We commend the bravery of Nadia and sincerely hope that together with Mrs Clooney, they are able to bring ISIS to International Crimal Court in Hague to answer for their crimes.
