Bureaucracy of Repression:
TEXT OF THE REPORT
APPENDIX: SAMPLE DOCUMENTS
This report was written by Joost Hiltermann, Kurds' Project director at Middle East Watch, and is based on fourteen months of archival research by a Middle East Watch-led team. Shorsh Resool, a researcher on that team, has contributed to the editing process. Overall editorial responsibility for the report lies with Andrew Whitley, executive director of Middle East Watch. Mr. Resool and Mr. Hiltermann jointly provided the translations of the documents that are included in the Appendix. Suzanne Howard was responsible for preparing the manuscript for publication.
Middle East Watch thanks Medico International
for its generous financial support for our work on the captured Iraq documents.
Without its support and that of several private donors this work would
not have been possible.
