A document founded in the Iraqi Intelligence and Security base gave away that during an Anfal Campaign, a number of girls(18 to be precise) were captured by and sent to Egypt to act as strippers and prostitutes in sex clubs. Nerchivan Barzani launched an investigation committee dedicated to the eighteen girls sold to Egyptian sex clubs during Saddam's reign, somewhere around the Anfal action.
The following picture is the document that was discovered in the ruins of the offices in Kirkuk
The document states in Kurdish, " We have arrested different groups of people, among them young girls aged between 14 and 29 years old. According to your request, we have sent a group of these girls to the harems and nightclubs of the Arab Republic of Egypt."
Bellow, it gives the names of the eighteen girls taken from their homes along with their age(at that current time):
Galawej Adel (14)
Chiman Nazim Abaas (22) Leyla Abbas Jawhar (21) Lamiah Nazim Omar (19)
Bahman Shukir Mustafa (26)
Khusaran Abdullah Tawfiq (20)
Qadriyah Ahmed Ibrahim (17)
Golmalek Ibrahim Ali (19)
Khawla Ahmed Fakhradeen (25) Esmat Qader Aziz (24) Najiba Hassan Ali (18) Hasiba Ameen Ali (29) Shiler Hassan Ali (20) Shukriyah Rustem Mohammad (27)
Habiba Hidayat Ibrahim (15)
Kuwestan Abbas Mawlud (26)
Serwa Othman Karam (17) Soza Majeed (22) An episode of the Egyptian TV series, Niran Sadeeqa, managed to relight the match of anger amongst the Kurdish people seeing as it was about the same 18 girls who were forced into slavery around 50 years ago.
During one scene of the episode, the main character talks to one of his father's employee's about the girls that were captured during an Anfal campaign showing up in his night club. The employee proves to be no help as he stated that he was only following orders, and the protagonist decided to take up the issue with his father.
When confronting his father about the women who found themselves put to work in his club, his father answered with, "Son, isn't it better for them to live than to die like others Kurds who die on a daily basis in Iraq?"
"No, it is better for them to die. At least they die martyrs. It is more honorable for them to die than to be forced into working in the night club," the young man replies with indignation.
Of course, no amount of acting could compare to how the families of the missing, thought to be dead, female's are probably feeling. After going through so much grief, their wounds are being reopened and salted mercilessly. Not to mention the pain of not knowing whether they really are dead or if they survived, because statistically speaking, the females sent to the Egyptian sex clubs still have chances of being alive.
Abdul Khaliq Qader Aziz, brother to one of the women on the list(Esmat Qader Aziz) personally went to the Ministry and set up an appointment with the Minster to ask him to find out what happened to his sister and the other women.
"The ministry will make all efforts to pursue the case in order to reach the truth of this news seriously, so the Minister if Martyrs and Anfal and a group of families of the victims will visit Consulate of Republic of Egypt in the capital Erbil to pursue the case as a first step," the Minister had stated in a televised newscast of Shafaq News.
