Mohammed Rashid Sahab
Place of Birth: Iraq;
Mohammed Rashid Sahab is a 36-year old Iraqi national, who was found guilty of participating in a terrorist organization as well as in the rape and abduction of Yazidi women.
Including the repeated rape of Ashwaq Haji Hamid Talo, whom he then forcibly married under Islamic law, which does not recognize marital rape. As a result of his conviction, he has been sentenced to death.
The case is exceptional in both how it focused on an individual victim and how it charged the defendant. Iraq’s prosecution of Islamic State militants has often been viewed as broad and rushed.
The Yazidi minority’s religious beliefs and practices contain a unique amalgamation of more prominent religions and include aspects of Zoroastrianism, Islam and Judeo-Christian traditions.
As a result of these differing beliefs they faced especially harsh treatment under the Islamic State regime.
