Berlin: Nadia Murad, a Yazidi woman from Iraq, who had endured a three-month nightmare as a sex slave of ISIS militants, has joined hands with Amal Clooney, a human rights lawyer to court for crimes against humanity.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, Nadia became a UN goodwill ambassador for Global Fight against Human Trafficking on September 12, 2016.

 

She was kidnapped by ISIS militants from her home in Kochu village near Iraq's northern town of Sinjar in August 2014 and brought to Mosul. She was since then kept as a sex slave by the militants who often gangraped her, until she fainted.

After her harrowing escape with the help of a fake religious ID nearly two years ago, Murad has a message for world leaders striving to crush the extremists: IS leaders must stand trial for genocide.

"I was not able to take any more rape and torture," she told the council, so she decided to flee.

Together with Clooney, she aims to represent thousands of ISIS sex slave victims and lead their cases in the International Criminal Court.

Nadia's campaign on sex abuse has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Through her campaign, she wants to highlight the human rights abuses faced by women at the hands of ISIS militants.
