「イスラム国」が売る性的奴隷の価格表、若いほど高額-国連 Bloomberg 8月4日(火)15時24分配信

 

 

ブルームバーグ):紛争下の性的暴力担当国連事務総長特別代表を務めるザイナブ・バングーラ氏によれば、過激派組織「イスラム国」は捕らえた女性と子供を奴隷として売り渡すために価格表を配布している。イスラム国の残虐ぶりはかつてないほど深刻になっていると同氏は指摘する。

バングーラ氏によると、同氏は4月にイラクに出張した際、イスラム国のパンフレットの写しを渡され、その中に価格表が含まれていた。価格表では幼い子供たちが最も高値で売られていることが示されていたという。買い手はイスラム国の兵士と中東の富裕層だ。

価格表は捕らえた人々に対するイスラム国の価値判断を示したもので、約8カ月前に明るみに出ていたが信ぴょう性は疑問視されていた。バングーラ氏はこの文書について、イスラム国が配布したものであり、実際の取引を反映していることを確認したと述べた。

バングーラ氏は先週、ニューヨークでブルームバーグのインタビューに応じ「少女たちはバレル単位で売られるガソリンのように売買されている。1人の少女が5人か6人の男たちに売買される可能性もある。これらの兵士たちは少女らの家族に数千ドルの身代金を要求して売り戻すこともある」と語った。

同氏によれば、イスラム国の兵士たちが1-9歳の少年や少女を購入する際にイラクの通貨ディナールで支払う額は1人当たり約165ドル(約2万円)相当。未成年の少女は124ドル、20歳を超える女性の値段はこれより安い。

  • Children are ‘peddled like barrels of petrol,' UN envoy says
    ISIS puts price for boys and girls aged 1 to 9 at about $165

    A senior United Nations official says Islamic State is circulating a slave price list for captured women and children, and that the group’s ongoing appeal and barbarity pose an unprecedented challenge.
    The official, Zainab Bangura, said that on a trip to Iraq in April she was given a copy of an Islamic State pamphlet, which included the list, showing that captured children as young as one fetch the highest price. The bidders include both the group’s own fighters and wealthy Middle Easterners.
    The list shows the group’s view of the value of those it captures and surfaced some eight months ago, though its authenticity came under question. Bangura, who is the UN special envoy on sexual violence in conflict and was also in Jordan and Turkey, said she has verified that the document came from Islamic State and reflects real transactions.
     
    “The girls get peddled like barrels of petrol,” she said in an interview last week in New York. “One girl can be sold and bought by five or six different men. Sometimes these fighters sell the girls back to their families for thousands of dollars of ransom.”
    For Islamic State fighters, the prices in Iraqi dinars for boys and girls aged 1 to 9 are equal to about $165, Bangura said. Prices for adolescent girls are $124 and it’s less for women over 20.
     
    The militia’s leaders first take those they wish, after which rich outsiders from the region are permitted to bid thousands of dollars, Bangura said. Those remaining are then offered to the group’s fighters for the listed prices.
    Verified List
    Bangura, a Muslim and former foreign minister of Sierra Leone, said that Islamic State, which rules some 80,000 square miles across swathes of Iraq and Syria, is unlike other insurgent groups and challenges all known models of fighting them.
    “It’s not an ordinary rebel group,” she said. “When you dismiss them as such, then you are using the tools you are used to. This is different. They have the combination of a conventional military and a well-run organized state.”
    Officials and scholars have struggled to understand Islamic State’s success despite breaking what are widely seen as rules for insurgents -- to be sure to mingle with local populations, not take on established militaries or try to hold territory. The group has broken all those rules and draws thousands of foreign fighters despite its well-publicized savagery.
    Below is a scanned copy of the list obtained and verified by the UN.
     
    Spread Fear
    Kerry Crawford, who teaches at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, said that publicizing the violations is used to the group’s advantage by building internal ties and external fear.
    “If you and your group are doing something that is considered taboo, your doing it together forms a bond,” she said. “Sexual violence does really create fear within a population.”
    She also said that sexual abuse by soldiers has a long history including the so-called rape camps in the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s.
    Islamic State has made a particular practice of enslaving communities it has conquered that are not Sunni Muslim -- Yazidis and Christians, for example. 
    It portrays such conquests as God’s work, drawing disaffected Muslims from around the world.
    Bangura said the international community and the UN have been taken aback by such practices because they do not resemble those of village militias in other countries.
    “They have a machinery, they have a program,” she said. “They have a manual on how you treat these women. They have a marriage bureau which organizes all of these ‘marriages’ and the sale of women. They have a price list.”
