At the beginning of December 2014 Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider Abadi announced that he would be tackling judicial reform (http://ninanews.com/english/News_Details.asp?ar95_VQ=HIIDMF). Specifically he wanted to clean up the process of how people were arrested, processed, held, and taken to trial. Iraq has never been known for its justice system, and post-03 various human rights groups and governments have all said that the country lacks due process and its jails and prisons are overcrowded and full of abuse. Premier Abadi appears to be serious about tackling with some of these institutional problems within the country. Dealing with arrests and courts would not only appeal to Sunnis who have been complaining about arbitrary arrests and people being held without trial for several years now, but it would be a huge step towards the rule of law within the country in general.
