resolutions, including Resolution 1483 (2003),

Recognizing the urgent necessity to ensure secure and humane prisons in order to re-
establish law and order and provide for the safety of the people of Iraq,

Noting the obligation of the CPA to restore public order and safety and to maintain and

Purpose

accordance with the following standards until otherwise directed. Any and all
existing Iraqi prison regulations are hereby suspended.

discrimination on the grounds of race, color, sex, language, religion, political or

security, to respect the religious beliefs and moral precepts of the group to which a
prisoner belongs.

the Iraqi prison system and may at any time amend this Memorandum as
necessary, or direct other action with respect to the prison system.
