Iraq: Reverse Decision to Execute Saddam (Human Rights Watch)
Appeals Chamber Should Review Flawed Verdict

(New York, December 26, 2006) The Iraqi government should not implement the death sentence against Saddam Hussein, which was imposed after a deeply flawed trial for crimes against humanity, Human Rights Watch said today. The Appeals Chamber of the Iraqi High Tribunal, which was first reported by Iraqs national security adviser to have upheld the sentence, should have conducted a thorough legal review of the verdict and then announced its findings, Human Rights Watch said.

Imposing the death penalty, indefensible in any case, is especially wrong after such unfair proceedings, said Richard Dicker, director of the International Justice Program at Human Rights Watch. That a judicial decision was first announced by Iraqs national security advisor underlines the political interference that marred Saddam Husseins trial.
