  • Judge Who Sentenced Saddam Executed by ISIS

    Raouf Abdul Rahman, the judge who sentenced Saddam Hussein to death, has been captured and executed by revolutionary forces in Iraq. Rahman was reportedly captured by the forces of ISIS on June 16th. Hussein was sentenced to death by hanging in 2006, as Rahmen presided over the proceedings. He was assigned to head the trial in January of that year, after the first judge in the case was deemed to be too lenient toward the defendant. The court under Rahman found Hussein guilty of crimes against humanity for the deaths of 148 people after an assassination attempt on the Iraqi leader. Political observers believe the militant group executed Rahman in retaliation for that decision. Some critics charge Judge Rahman was biased in the case against Hussein. He had reportedly been arrested and to...

Wide defendants in courtroom 6. Close up former Iraqi president and defendant Saddam Hussein 7. From left, Haddam Hussein's lawyers, Ziad al-Najdawi (talking to judge) and Khamis al-Obeidi (listening and organising papers) STORYLINE One of ousted Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's lawyers was killed on Wednesday after he was abducted from his home by men wearing police uniforms in Baghdad, court officials said. Khamis al-Obeidi, who represented Saddam and his half brother Barzan Ibrahim, was abducted from his house at 7 a.m. (0300GMT), Saddam's top lawyer, Khalil al-Dulaimi said. Chief prosecutor Jaafar al-Moussawi said that al-Obeidi had been killed, although he did not provide more details. Unlike al-Dulaimi, who shuttles between Amman, Jordan, and the Iraqi capital, al-Obeidi chose to continue to live in Baghdad despite the tenuous security and the killing of two members of the trial's defence team last year. Al-Dulaimi condemned the act and blamed the Interior Ministry, which Sunnis have alleged is infiltrated by so-called Shiite death squads. He added that US-led forces also bore responsibility because the war had allowed Shiite militias to gain influence. Saddam and seven former members of his regime are being tried on charges of crimes against humanity for a crackdown against Shiites in the town of Dujail in the 1980s.

Ramsey Clark and Khalil Al- Dulaymi car driving away STORYLINE: Saddam Hussein's chief lawyer claimed on Thursday that he was threatened by three men as he boarded a plane from Baghdad to Jordan. Khalil Dulaimi, did not explain how the men threatened him, but said that he believed that one of them was an Iraqi security official. "It seemed he was a man backed (by influential people) and affiliated with one of the security apparatus," he said. "I asked airport security to check his identity and they did. His name is with us. I believe he sought to assassinate me, or assassinate the defence team." Dulaimi has now appealed for intervention from the United Nations "to ensure a just and honourable trial, in the midst of a jungle of horrendous security." Former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark, who is participating in the trial said other lawyers also received threats in the Baghdad courtroom during the three sessions held this week. During the proceedings, the judge ordered the removal of one man from the visitors' balcony for making threatening gestures toward the defence. Clark said the threats in the courtroom were directed at Dulaimi. Dulaimi declined to provide other details on the purported threats. Sources close to the defence lawyers, insisting on anonymity because of the sensitivity of their position, said they believed the threats came from individuals affiliated with the Iraqi interior ministry. Clark complained of "extremely chaotic" court procedures, which included faulty, or occasionally no English translations of proceedings during the trial. He said that some of the witness testimonies "seem entirely fabricated, some seem to be assisted." "If the court is held to be legal, we'll appeal it, because we think it's of historical importance. The courts ought to be created by a legal authority, it's essential," he said.

It''s impossible to make these things and this year or after this year, and I believe there is a lot of problems in Iraq until American soldiers sit in Iraq. If they leave, perhaps there is a quiet little bit in Iraq from time to time. Even they are sit in Iraq, there are a lot of problems will be heavier." 8. Flowers 9. Wide of interview STORYLINE: A day after a judge and a lawyer working for the special tribunal that will put Saddam Hussein on trial were shot dead in Baghdad, Saddam''s chief defence lawyer claimed it was impossible to go ahead with a trial of the former dictator under the present conditions. Ziad al-Khasawneh, the chief defence lawyer for Saddam Hussein, said he expected attacks to increase as the security situation in the Iraqi capital deteriorates with the continued presence of US forces. Saddam and his 11 top lieutenants have been held for months at an undisclosed location, believed to be near the Baghdad International Airport, west of the capital. They appeared before the Iraqi Special Tribunal in July 2004 to face preliminary charges for their activities under the former regime. Saddam was captured north of Baghdad in December 2003. Ziad al-Khasawneh, who heads a committee set up to provide Saddam''s legal defence, said the special court doesn''t meet the requirements for a fair and safe trial, and there were no grounds to try Saddam in the first place.

Cutaway 4. SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Khalil al-Dulaimi, Saddam Hussein's chief defence lawyer: "We all agreed not to attend the next session. As for the sessions after we have a number of reasonable and legally justifiable demands, if they are met we will continue our work normally, even with our past reservations regarding the legality of this trial." 5. Cutaway 6. SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Khalil al-Dulaimi, Saddam Hussein's chief defence lawyer: "Our demands are that the court, actually the judge officially apologies to Mr Armouti for his behaviour towards him (Mr Armouti). The second demand is that the people who attacked Mr Barzan, and this is not the first time he's been attacked, be brought to court. Also that the coverage be live, uncut, uncensored, and unfiltered to the extent that it has been so far. Included in our demand is that Mr Rauf promises to behave in an appropriate manner in the future, and to run the sessions in an acceptable manner, like Mr Mohammad-Amin. Another demand is that the court promises, and the people in charge of the court whether it's the Iraqi government or the Americans, who are illegally occupying the Iraqi land and according to the Geneva conventions, are responsible for protecting people in this occupied country and the lawyers from the threats of criminals that are trying to assassinate and kill them in order to kill the defenders of the truth." 6. Saddam Hussein's lawyer leaving STORYLINE: Saddam Hussein and his lawyers will boycott the next session of the deposed leader's trial in Baghdad to protest the alleged "bias" of the new chief judge appointed to hear the case, his chief lawyer said on Monday. Iraqi lawyer Khalil al-Dulaimi made the comment as he arrived in Jordan from neighbouring Iraq. Al-Dulaimi said the ousted leader would also refuse to attend. On Sunday, a new judge cracked down in a chaotic session of Saddam's trial, ordering a co-defendant and Jordanian lawyer Saleh Armouti expelled from the courtroom. The entire defence team left in protest and Saddam was escorted out after a shouting match in which he yelled, "Down with America!" Despite the turmoil in the courtroom, chief judge Raouf Rasheed Abdel-Rahman pushed ahead, replacing the defence lawyers with court-appointed attorneys and heard three prosecution witnesses before adjourning the trial until Wednesday. It was Abdel-Rahman's first session at the helm after replacing a jurist who stepped down under criticism that he was not doing enough to stop Saddam and his half brother, co-defendant Barzan Ibrahim, from dominating the trial with frequent outbursts and disruptions. Defence lawyers criticised the tough approach, saying it was preventing Saddam and his seven co-defendants from getting a fair trial. The eight could face death by hanging if convicted in the killing of at least 140 Shiites after a July 1982 attempt on Saddam's life in the town of Dujail north of Baghdad.

Defence lawyer Badie Arif Ezzat was ejected after he tried to object to the foreign experts the prosecution has called in to testify the past two days. When he referred to the prosecution and judges as "brother" rather than by their titles, chief judge Mohammed Oreibi al-Khalifa warned him to respect the court. But Ezzat repeated the phrase and when al-Khalifa ordered him removed, he threatened: "I'll expose that to world public opinion." "Get out otherwise I'll take legal measures against you", shouted judge Al-Khalifa and after a brief shouting match between the two guards escorted Ezzat out of the room. After the stormy start to the session, American archaeologist and fire arms expert Douglas Scott testified about his examination of bodies found in a mass grave in northern Iraq, saying they appeared to have been gunned down by a firing squad. Saddam and his co-defendants have pleaded innocent to charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity arising from their role in a military crackdown on Iraq's Kurd population in 1987-88.

"The court was hundred percent American," Bushra al-Khalil told journalists on Friday. Al-Khalil made her comments at the Lebanese press syndicate in Beirut, during a news conference attended by some of Saddam Hussein's supporters. "There was an American team of judges inside the court and they were giving orders to the prosecutor and this happened in front of us. Written papers were passed to the judge and he was only reading it," she said. Al-Khalil said she believes the Americans are "seeking a civil war by sentencing Saddam to death." She considered the verdict illegal, as Saddam Hussein could "not defend himself." "We did not plead, neither Taha Yassin Ramadan nor Mr. President (Saddam Hussein) mentioned one single word," Al-Khalil said. The United States has denied direct involvement in the trial, but some legal observers believe it was tainted by association with the American occupation.

(12 May 2016) Iraq's unstable govenrment and disunity among its politicians and security services have been blamed for the continuing violence and turmoil in the country The capital Baghdad is struggling to cope with the aftermath of its deadliest day of violence this year, after three car bombs claimed by the Islamic State group killed 93 people across the city on Wednesday. Separately, a twin suicide bombing hit a police station in Baghdad's western suburb of Abu Ghraib on Thursday, killing at least five police officers. Hisham al-Hashimi, an Iraq analyst and security expert, said political fights, weak intelligence services, and disputes among security services all contributed to the chaos in the country. And lawyer Asaad al-Hasini lamented a lack of good politicians in the country. "We don't have a wise leader who can run the country well. I wonder, is Iraq empty of wise politicians?" he said.

Raouf Abdul Rahman, the judge who sentenced Saddam Hussein to death, has been captured and executed by revolutionary forces in Iraq. Rahman was reportedly captured by the forces of ISIS on June 16th. Hussein was sentenced to death by hanging in 2006, as Rahmen presided over the proceedings. He was assigned to head the trial in January of that year, after the first judge in the case was deemed to be too lenient toward the defendant. The court under Rahman found Hussein guilty of crimes against humanity for the deaths of 148 people after an assassination attempt on the Iraqi leader. Political observers believe the militant group executed Rahman in retaliation for that decision. Some critics charge Judge Rahman was biased in the case against Hussein. He had reportedly been arrested and tortured by forces under the Iraqi leader's command. Members of his family also died in the 1988 poison gas attack allegedly ordered by Hussein. With the forces of ISIS closing in on Baghdad, Rahman allegedly tried to escape the Iraqi capitol, dressed as a dancer. Khalil Attieh, a member of Parliment in Jordan, reported on the execution of the former Iraqi judge. On his Facebook page, the lawmaker in Amman wrote, "Iraqi revolutionaries arrested him and sentenced him to death in retaliation for the death of the martyr Saddam Hussein." News of the execution also comes from a former deputy of Hussein, Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri. He is now a leader among the ISIS forces, managing the drive that has taken control of major cities, border checkpoints and oil refineries. The execution of the judge was not confirmed by the Iraqi government. However, officials in Baghdad would not deny Rahman was captured by ISIS. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2665360/Judge-sentenced-Saddam- Hussein-death-captured-executed-ISIS.html http://www.news.com.au/world/middle-east/judge-raouf-abdul-rahman-who-ordered- saddam-husseins-death-in-2006-reportedly-killed-by-jihadists/story-fnh81ifq- 1226964400019 http://www.deccanchronicle.com/140624/world-neighbours/article/iraq-crisis-sunni- militants-kill-judge-who-ordered-saddam-husseins http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/iraq-crisis-isis-militants-judge-raouf-abdul-rahman- killed-saddam/1/368265.html http://www.maltatoday.com.mt/news/world/40388/ isis_reportedly_capture_execute_saddam_hussein_trial_judge Support Indymedia!

Lawyers standing at the lobby STORYLINE Saddam Hussein's lawyer Khalil al-Duelimi on Sunday vehemently condemned the assassination of his colleague, Saadoun al-Janabi, who was kidnapped and killed by unknown gunmen on October 20, in Baghdad. Saadoun Sughaiyer Al-Janabi was the lawyer of one Saddam's seven co-defendants in the Dujail issue. Khalil al-Duelimi denounced his assassination as a "cowardly act" and insisted Iraqi and American governments should work for the protection and safeguard of the lives of his colleagues, "who are performing their duty in an independent and professional way." He also demanded that the UN send an international team to investigate into the assassination of al-Janabi. Al-Janabi was abducted late on Thursday by gunmen, some of them masked, who burst into his office and dragged him away. The kidnap came a day after al-Janabi participated in the first session of the trial. His body, with two bullet shots to the head, was found hours later on a pavement near Fardous Mosque in the eastern neighbourhood of Ur, near the site of his office, police said. His identity was confirmed on Friday by the police. The killing was the first setback for a tribunal that has been held under tight security. Al-Duleimi has implicitly accused the Shiite Badr militias of being behind the act. The Badr militia is the military wing of the Shiite cleric Abdul-Aziz al-Hakim. Al-Janabi was defending Awad Hamed al-Bandar, the former head of Saddam's Revolutionary Court. The defendants have pleaded innocent. After the opening day of their trial on October 19, it was adjourned until November 28.

Close up former Iraqi president and defendant Saddam Hussein 14. From left, Haddam Hussein's lawyers, Ziad al-Najdawi (talking to judge) and Khamis al-Obeidi (listening and organising papers) STORYLINE One of ousted Iraqi president Saddam Hussein's lawyers was killed on Wednesday after he was abducted from his home by men wearing police uniforms in Baghdad, court officials said. Khamis al-Obeidi, who represented Saddam and his half brother Barzan Ibrahim, was abducted from his house at 0700 local time (0300 GMT), Saddam's top lawyer Khalil al-Dulaimi said. Chief prosecutor Jaafar al-Moussawi confirmed that al-Obeidi had been killed, although he did not provide more details. A Lebanese member of Saddam Hussein's defence team, Boushra al-Khalil, accused the Americans of being responsible for al-Obeidi's death, saying it was a consequence of their decision to stop giving protection to defence lawyers. "Lifting the security of the defence team paved the way for the assassination," al-Khalil said in an interview with the AP Television in Beirut. He also said that it was clear "they have no intention of letting the public opinion hear our defence and they do not want us to defend in a legal and correct way. What happened today was a warning to the rest of the defence team". Unlike Al-Dulaimi and Al-Khalil, who shuttle between Amman, Beirut and the Iraqi capital, al-Obeidi chose to continue to live in Baghdad despite the tenuous security and the killing of two members of the trial's defence team last year. Saddam and seven former members of his regime are being tried on charges of crimes against humanity for a crackdown against Shi'ites in the town of Dujail in the 1980s. They could face hanging if found guilty.

Wide of fish market LEADIN: Grilled fish cooked around large open fires is a popular dish in Baghdad. STORYLINE: Fish restaurants cooking mazgouf fish on open fires are becoming popular in Baghdad. This traditional way of grilling fish dates back centuries. A number of fishes are taken alive out of water, killed, gutted and transfixed on wooden pegs in a circular around a tamarisk wood fire. They are finally spiced and served with pickles and vegetables. One chef Ya'rib Aziz says that grilled fish is a growing trend here.

SHOTLIST 1. Ramsey Clark approaches the podium at the National Press Club 2. Cutaway media 3. SOUNDBITE (English) Ramsey Clark, Lawyer of Saddam Hussein: "We had asked for more time in two ways, we had asked for three months because we''ve had no opportunity to prepare the defence, we''ve had no protection, we can''t go to Dujail because we would have to have a battalion of Marines. We also haven''t had essential documents to prepare the defence, which we have asked for time and time again. We don''t even have a transcript of the testimony that has been given and we are very concerned about that because there may never be one which means that this history can easily become a fiction agreed upon because you don''t have a record." 4. Cutaway journalists 5. Clark at podium 6. Cutaway media 7.SOUNDBITE (English) Ramsey Clark, Lawyer of Saddam Hussein: "These cases referred to the court more than 20 months after the, these 148 cases, and the order entered about four months later for execution, they were then referred to a national council of judges who reviewed them to see if they had the right person, to see if there were any legal disqualifications, to see if the confessions were in order, to see if the confessions were renounced, and it was three years after the event before President Saddam Hussein signed the death warrants." 8. Clark at podium STORYLINE Ramsey Clark, a former US Attorney General now defending Saddam Hussein, said the former Iraqi president''s trial is a sham staged and paid for by the United States to remove Saddam as a symbol of resistance. "We''ve had no protection, we can''t go to Dujail because we would have to have a battalion of Marines. We also haven''t had essential documents to prepare for the defence," Clark said during a news conference on Tuesday in Washington. Clark said it was almost impossible to mount a defence given the fact that a transcript of testimony and crucial documents have not been made available to his legal team. Clark said proper legal procedures were followed according to Iraqi law in presenting the facts and determining guilt of the 148 persons executed for the assassination attempt on Saddam in the town of Dujail. Saddam and seven co-defendants are on trial for the deaths of 148 Shiites, the imprisonment of hundreds more, and for torture and destruction of farmlands in a crackdown launched on the town of Dujail following the 1982 assassination attempt. Clark noted that two levels of Iraqi courts reviewed the evidence before a final verdict was rendered against the Dujail citizens. Clark said he probably would not return to Iraq for the restart of the trial, which he said was scheduled for Monday. He said Saddam is his only client, and he thinks the judges have determined to turn their attention to the seven other defendants. The prosecution completed presenting evidence in the Dujail case late last month.

Various of Baghdad gallows where death sentences are carried out STORYLINE : It was the day the people of Iraq thought they would never see. Throughout the land, on 19 October 2005, people crowded around televisions to watch the opening moments of the trial of Saddam Hussein. But it wasn't just Iraq that was watching. The trial was front page news across the world, with legions of politicians, lobbyists and lawyers scrutinising every move. And it wasn't just Saddam and his comrades in the dock - but democracy, justice, and everything the American-led invasion and occupation claimed to represent. That's why the legality of the trial has become such a key issue.

SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Abdul-Jabar Abu Farah, Baghdad resident: "Today, the US president announced the killing of Osama bin Laden, and when we heard this news, the Iraqi people were pleased that someone had got rid of such a person and his atrocities." 4. Various of traffic 5. Police vehicle parked 6. SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Ali al-Tamimi, Baghdad lawyer: "The fall and killing of bin Laden means the end of a dark epoch. It is the end of all criminals. God willing, his killing will be the end of all other criminals as it has happened in Iraq." Gaza City, Gaza strip 7. Various of street scenes 8. People chatting by side of street 9. SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Mohammad Batsh, Gaza resident: "Since the time they (the US) are fighting bin Laden, maybe since 2003 or even before, till 2011, a country that is saying they are a superpower state, they needed eight or nine years to look for a man. I think that the US policy failed, especially in the Middle East and in fighting all the Islamic movements." 10. People talking in the street 11. SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Abdul Qader Abu Shaaban, Gaza resident: "Do they think by killing bin Laden everything is done? Despite all what Israel and America are trying to do, someone stronger than bin Laden will emerge. Bin Laden did what he could do, and God took him as a martyr. You remember Israel assassinated many people such as Ahmad Yassin, but other people came and replaced them." Ramallah, West Bank 12. Various street scenes in Ramallah 13. SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Nizam Mansoor, Ramallah Resident: "Bin Laden made unacceptable actions, the killing of 3,000 innocent civilians is something unacceptable. If he had killed 3,000 soldiers it would be different, but killing civilians at the International Trade Center was not good at all." 14. Pedestrians in Ramallah street 15. SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Sami Shanan, Ramallah Resident: "I don't think they put an end to the head of terror in the world by killing bin Laden. The head of terror in the world is still there until now and became stronger. I mean the United States and Israel and those leaders around the world who did not respect the people, I think Osama bin Laden is a result of this terror. Bin Laden made a mistake by killing civilians. That was wrong and forbidden, but in the end he is not responsible for the terror all over the world." 16. Security official in street STORYLINE: The death of Osama bin Laden provoked a strong response across Middle Eastern countries on Monday. Many in Baghdad welcomed the news of the death of the man widely blamed, along with his al-Qaida network, for insurgent and sectarian violence in the country. One man said that when they heard the news, Iraqis "were pleased that someone had got rid of such a person and his atrocities.'' Another, lawyer Ali al-Tamimi, described the killing of bin Laden as "the end of a dark epoch." But reaction among the Palestinian people was mixed. Gaza resident Mohammed Batsh was scathing about the time it took to kill bin Laden. "A country that is saying they are a superpower state, they needed eight or nine years to look for a man. I think that the US policy failed, especially in the Middle East and in fighting all the Islamic movements." Another local resident Abdul Qader Abu Shaaban said bin Laden's death did not mean that things had come to an end and that despite all efforts by Israel and America, he was sure "someone stronger than bin Laden will emerge". Shaaban's thoughts were echoed by a Ramallah resident. "Bin Laden made a mistake by killing civilians. That was wrong and forbidden, but in the end he is not responsible for the terror all over the world," said Sami Shanan.

But I am defending you." 20. Cutaway of Saddam with witness standing in background 21. Mid shot of Saddam holding up his hand to show written notes to the judge STORYLINE: During a chaotic court session in Baghdad on Monday, the former Iraqi leader, Saddam Hussein told the judge that he did not fear the outcome of the trial. "I am not afraid of execution," he said. The outburst was one of several by Saddam and his co-defendants at the trial that also saw a brief walkout by his defence lawyers. The former president's lawyers briefly walked out of court after the judge refused to allow statements by foreign lawyers including former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark. This led Saddam Hussein to demand that the defence lawyers be allowed to speak. "Why are you letting the employees of the court talk and not letting the defence lawyers defend us? Is this justice?" he said. However, after a 90-minute recess, Chief Judge Rizgar Mohammed Amin allowed Clark and ex-Qatari Justice Minister Najib al-Nueimi to speak on the question of the safety of the lawyers. "This trial can divide or heal. Unless it is seen as absolutely fair, and fair in fact, it will divide rather than reconcile Iraq," Clark then told the court, before being reminded by the judge that he was to speak only about the security guarantees for the defence lawyers, two of whom have been assassinated since the trial began on 19 October. Saddam and seven co-defendants are accused of killing of more than 140 Shiites after an assassination attempt against the president in Dujail in 1982. Following Clark's statement the first witness to take the stand was Ahmed Hassan Mohammed who gave testimony on Dujail. He said that after the assassination attempt, Saddam's security agencies took people of all ages away, including a baby. The tribunal will convene again on Tuesday.

1-Details from the trial session 2-Shots of the dialogue between Saddam Hussein's lawyer, Judge Rauf Abdel Rahman and Saddam 3- Former Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Tareq Aziz swearing 4-Statement by Aziz (In Arabic) Saddam's trial resumed in Baghdad on Wednesday, former Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Tareq Aziz took the witness stand to defend former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and his associates in a case involving the killing of Shiite civilians from Dujail in the 1980s. While he was not involved with the events of Dujail itself, his testimony on behalf of Saddam focused on the series of assassination attempts against officials of the Baath regime at that time. "The president is not guilty, nor are any of the officials in the government, just because they punished those who tried to assassinate the head of state," he told the court. He stated, "The Dujail case is part of a chain of assassination operations against officials and I am one of the victims." Aziz was attacked in 1980, by militants who tossed grenades at him at Baghdad's Mustansiriyah University. "The president of the state in any country, if faced with an assassination attempt, should take procedures to punish those who conduct and help this operation. According to the law, people who support this assassination can also be convicted" he said. Aziz said he was testifying on the behalf not just Saddam, but also former head of intelligence Barzan al-Tikriti and former vice president Taha Yassin Ramadan. Saddam and his seven co-defendants face charges of crimes against humanity, including murder and torture, and could face execution by hanging if found guilty. The trial is currently in the defense phase, featuring testimony on the behalf of the accused, with last week involving witnesses for the little known Baathist officials from Dujail. Lebanese lawyer Bushra Khalil had returned to the courtroom after a long absence following her expulsion in early April by Judge Rauf Abdel Rahman for disrupting the proceedings. But an argument immediately erupted after the trial resumed, and the judge ordered her thrown out again. She was escorted from the courtroom screaming, and tossing her robes at the judge, drawing protests from Saddam and other lawyers. Chief prosecutor Jaafar al-Mussawi said, the defense testimony could take a few weeks, as nearly 60 witnesses are lined up to testify in the courtroom in Baghdad's fortified Green Zone. Once defense testimony is complete, defense lawyers will give their closing statements, followed by defendants' final statements which will mark the end of the trial. *Soruce: Ihlas News Agency

But this matter has not yet been officially concluded and maybe I''ll be able to surprise you soon on this issue." 3. Cutaway of Izzat writing 4. SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Badie Aref Izzat, Tariq Aziz''s Lawyer: ''''I''m going to present a lawsuit, a lawsuit against the Prime Minister for violating the law and the constitution when he issued orders to expropriate the houses of the detainees. Such an act is illegal.'''' 5. Cutaway of Izzat writing FILE: Date and location unknown 6. Various of Tariq Aziz STORYLINE: The lawyer of Iraq''s former deputy Prime Minister, Tariq Aziz, said in Baghdad on Tuesday that several European states had agreed to allow his client to receive medical treatment in their countries. ''''It''s not just Russia, there are other European states, which I don''t want to name, which have shown their readiness to receive Tariq Aziz in their territory to be examined and treated," Badie Aref Izzat said. He also accused Iraq''s Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari of expropriating property belonging to detainees. "Such an act is illegal,'''' Izzat said. Aziz''s family, whose lawyers are seeking his release from US military custody in Baghdad on medical grounds, are awaiting American approval to fly him abroad for medical treatment, his son said on Monday. Ziad Aziz said his father was suffering from heart problems, high blood pressure and diabetes. Three weeks ago, Aziz''s family, through its lawyers in Iraq and abroad, contacted several medical institutes in countries not involved in the Iraqi invasion, the younger Aziz said. Russia, France and Sweden topped the list of preferred countries. The 69-year-old Aziz suffered a heart attack before the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. His family, who reside in Jordan, have said his health has sharply deteriorated while in detention in a tiny cell on a US military base, called Camp Cropper in Baghdad. The US military authorities have said that Aziz is healthy and is receiving regular medical checkups. Aziz was arrested after Saddam Hussein''s government was toppled in 2003 and is being held by US forces under agreement with the Iraqi government. The only Christian in the top Baath Party leadership, Aziz was allegedly involved in several party purges in the 1970s and 80s during which an unspecified number of people died. Aziz has denied the allegations, saying his role was confined to foreign affairs and the media. He was the main Iraqi spokesman during the 1991 Gulf war.
