There has been criticism of the court, as well as the broader judiciary of Iraq. The New York Times published an investigative article critical of the court,[2] and Human Rights Watch has said that:[3][4]

The United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq recommended that the government "review procedures before criminal courts and adopt measures consistent with minimum standards for fair trial; adopt measures to ensure basic rights for defendants, including timely and adequate access to defence counsel, and continuity of representation by counsel at all stages of the proceedings; give consideration to implementing a moratorium on the death penalty pending a thorough review of legal proceedings followed at both pre-trial and trial stages."[5][6]
