Short Story

Al Mesalla refers to the Code of Hammurabi (Codex Hammurabi) is a well-preserved ancient law code, created ca. 1790 BC (middle chronology) in ancient Babylon. It was enacted by the sixth Babylonian king, Hammurabi. One nearly complete example of the Code survives today, inscribed on a seven foot, four inch tall basalt stele in the Acadian language in the cuneiform script.

It aims to: disseminate and reinforce a culture of human rights; participate in strengthening principles of democracy, peace building, conflict resolution and non-violent culture; reinforce the spirit of voluntary work in the Iraqi community.
