UN Official Verified IS “Price List” For Yazidi And Christian Females

A “price list” for Yazidi and Christian females was issued last year by the so-called Islamic State’s Office of Money House. Just 24 hours after its release, Defend International Team was able to verify the authenticity of the document and a screenshot was posted on twitter by DI co-founder Dr. Widad, sparking a debate that lasted for almost a year. The same document has now been confirmed as genuine by the UN’s Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Sexual Violence in Conflict.
