Non-refoulement and Iraq

Though non-refoulement is a well-established principle of customary international law, in addition, recognized by treaties such as the 1951/1967 Refugee Convention and the 1984 Convention against Torture, individuals are still subject to its violation, here, even by those countries that count, in theory, with the highest standards.
Let us not talk about the consequence of deporting individuals to sensitive areas.
Good for the UNHCR position.
