Judge Says Legitimacy of the Tribunal and Intimidation of Witnesses Not Important

Defense and Support Committee of President Saddam Hussein, his Comrades and all P.o.W.s and Detainees in Iraq. (ISNAD)


5 June 2006

The trial of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein resumed with increasing intimidation of witnesses and defense counsel by Iraqi and United States authorities and with the Special Court refusing to rule on defense lawyers’ requests for time to prepare and present their case.

Judge Abdel Rahman said that neither the legitimacy of the Special Court nor the detention of defense witness was important in refusing to reply to defense lawyers’ request that lawyer not be harassed and that the defense lawyers’ be given time to prepare a defense. He said these are not his problems.

Prior to the Monday hearing the United States authorities attempted to prevent the President’s lawyers from coming to Iraq by repeatedly threatening that they would be arrested and that their security could not be guaranteed despite the fact that the trial is taking place in the heavily fortified Green Zone, under American control. When they arrived they were taken to be 'screened’ where they were thoroughly searched, including their confidential papers in a procedure described as new.

In court the defense lawyers also protested that they had not received a reasoned decision on more than ten motions submitted to the court challenging it as illegal and biased.

A foreign lawyer representing the President was denied the right to speak in English by the American officials.

The failure of the Special Court to ensure numerous aspects of the basic human right to fair trial has drawn strong condemnation from several UN human rights experts, several governments, and numerous human rights NGOs around the globe.

Like several of these international experts, the defense lawyers demanded that the trial be stopped until a legal court capable of ensuring the basic human right to a fair trial can be established.

Only two defense witnesses appeared before the trial was adjourned until 12 June.

تصريح صحفي

القاضي يقول أن موضوع شرعية المحكمة وترويع الشهود هي أمور غير مهمة
5 حزيران 2006

شبكة البصرة

استؤنفت محاكمة الرئيس صدام حسين وسط مظاهر ترويع متزايد للشهود ولمحاميي الدفاع من قبل السلطات العراقية والأمريكية، مع رفض المحكمة إصدار قرار بشأن طلبات محاميي الدفاع لمنحهم الوقت الكافي لتحضير دفاعهم وعرض قضيتهم.

وقال القاضي عبد الرحمن في معرض رفضه الرد على طلب محاميي الدفاع بأن لا يتم قمع المحامين وأن يعطيهم القاضي الوقت لتحضير دفاعهم، إن لا شرعية المحكمة واعتقال الشهود هي أمور غير هامة.

وقبل موعد الجلسة يوم الاثنين، حاولت السلطات الأمريكية منع محاميي الرئيس من القدوم إلى العراق، مهددة مرارا بأنه قد يتم اعتقالهم، وإن أمنهم لن يكون مضموناً على الرغم من أن المحاكمة تجري في المنطقة الخضراء الشديدة التحصين، والخاضعة للسيطرة الأمريكية. وعندما وصل المحامون تم أخذهم للتفتيش، حيث أخضعوا إلى تفتيش مكثف شمل أوراقهم السرية في إجراء وصف بأنه جديد من نوعه.

كما احتج المحامون داخل المحكمة أيضا من أنهم لم يحصلوا على قرارا مسوغ على أكثر من عشرة مذكرات قدموها إلى المحكمة للطعن بلا قانونية المحكمة وبتحيزها.

وقد حرم محام أجنبي يمثل الرئيس من حق التحدث باللغة الإنجليزية من قبل المسؤولين الأمريكيين.

إن فشل المحكمة الخاصة في ضمان عدد كبير من حقوق الإنسان الأساسية في الحصول على محاكمة عادلة قد استوجب إدانة العديد من خبراء الأمم المتحدة لشؤون حقوق الإنسان، والعديد من الحكومات وعدد كبير من منظمات حقوق الإنسان غير الحكومية في كل أرجاء العالم.

وإن محاميي الدفاع، مثلهم مثل العديد من هؤلاء الخبراء الدوليين قد طالبوا بوقف المحاكمة إلى أن يتم تأسيس محكمة قانونية قادرة على ضمان حق الإنسان الأساسي في محاكمة عادلة.

وقد مثل شاهدان فقط في جلسة المحاكمة التي تأجلت حتى 12 حزيران 2006.
