Iraqi Judge Who Sentenced Saddam Hussein To Death Captured And Executed By ISIS
The judge who presided over the trial of former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and sentenced him to death was reportedly captured by ISIS insurgents last week. The Daily Mail is now reporting that Judge Raouf Abdul Rahman has been executed. Judge Rahman had reportedly tried to escape Baghdad dressed in a dancer's uniform. A target had been placed on his head by Sunni Muslims after the botched manner in which Hussein's execution was carried out and videotaped by Shi-ite Muslims. Fearing for his life, Judge Rahman had reportedly filed an asylum claim with Great Britain in 2007, a claim that was denied by the Iraqi High Criminal Court Tribunal.
