The Court Insists on Breaching the Law in the Saddam Trial Session of July 26, 2006

The Defense Committee for President Saddam Hussein and his Comrades (ISNAD)


July 27, 2006

A STATEMENT about the SESSION of the 26th of July 2006

The proceedings of the 39th session of the High Iraqi Criminal Court which is trying President Saddam Hussein and his comrades in the Dujail case proved once again in its persistence to deprive President Saddam Hussein and his comrades of the minimum chance to defend himself. By rebuking the Defense lawyers and stating political attitudes that reveal the lack of impartiality, the Court exploited the immediate broadcasting to falsify the facts. It became evident that we are facing pre-judgments which are made by those who stand behind the Court.

All what is the Defense is required to do is to give legitimacy to such pre-judgments. The Defense was not allowed to amend the track so that this trial comes nearer to the minimum requirements for a fair trial. This has become evident by:

- The detaining American military enforced President Saddam Hussein to attend this session despite his refusal and despite the fact that he was on hunger strike.

- The Court imposed appointed lawyers who are employees in the Defense Office to read a statement which was prepared by William Wiley despite the fact the President has objected to this and stated that he is still holding on to have lawyers of his choosing.

- The (defense) statements included convicting evidence against the President and his comrades which constitute a violation to all the professional codes which obligates the defense counsel to do his utmost effort in defending ľ and not convicting his client. Those employees asked the Court's mercy for their client so that he can avoid a death sentence as if they see that it is the due punishment.

- The Court prevented the President from stating the arguments he wanted to make by threatening that he may be subject to be charged with incitement to kill the Iraqis and by claiming that it is forbidden to raise political issue. In fact the presiding judge revealed repeatedly and in an offensive and extensive manner, his political attitudes regarding what is happening in Iraq nowadays and also during the rule of President Saddam Hussein. In addition to that, the judge admitted a political address which condemns the regime of the President and applauds the government appointed by the occupation. Such political address is contained in the statement of William Wiley and which was translated to Arabic in a style and terminology that is unfamiliar in the field of the Iraqi judiciary.

- The Court rebuked the defense counsel of the client's choosing. It alleged that they have received millions although it is known for all that all the Defense lawyers are volunteers who committed to do all the professional duties of defending their clients.

The reasons that made them suspend their attendance were imposed upon them as they were denied any opportunity to present an actual and comprehensive defense case. Their position is supported by the Arab Lawyers Union and most of the international legal organizations.

The Defense Committee urges the public opinion and all the concerned organizations to have a say in the violations that impaired this trial and join us in demanding to stop it in order to boost the principles and rules of law and justice.
