Saddam trial flawed: Human Rights Watch

New York: Terming the trial of ousted Iraqi President Saddam Husseinas flawed, a US-based human rights groups has accused the Iraqi government of influencing the judges.
Hussein was sentenced to death on November five after being convicted for crimes against humanity.
The trial by the Iraqi High Tribunal was marred by so many procedural and substantive flaws that imposition of death penalty was indefensible, the Human Rights Watch said, adding that the verdict was "unsound."
"The proceedings in the Dujail trial were fundamentally unfair," Nehal Bhuta of the International Justice programme at Human Rights Watch and author of the 97-page report released today said.
"The tribunal squandered an important opportunity to deliver credible justice to the people of Iraq."
"The Iraqi High Tribunal was undermined from the outset by Iraqi government actions that threatened the independence and perceived impartiality of the court. Members of Parliament and even ministers regularly denounced the tribunal as weak, leading to the resignation of the first presiding trial judge," it noted.
The shortcomings of the trial, for the killings of more than 100 people from the Iraqi town of Dujail, also call into question subsequent proceedings at the tribunal, the report said.
But as I said earlier (in another post) Saddam needs to be punished but USA does'nt have that right!!!
Mythili !!!!... Saddam has been sentenced by Iraqi court and not USA.!!!!
Saddam has met his fate. What goes around comes around!!!!Edited by lighthouse - 13 years ago
Even at the risk of being labelled unfair, I think that is the most fair thing to do for a human rights organisation. Perhaps they can do more service if they looked after the needs of thouands orphaned everyday around the world than keeping a hawk eyed sight on a highly publicised trial of a murderer to gain some easy publicity .
