    Saddam could face death penalty

    Saddam Hussein could face the death penalty, according to the head of Iraq's war crimes tribunal.

    The US administrator in Iraq, Paul Bremer, has suspended the penalty but it could be brought back by the Iraqi government after the transfer of sovereignty at the end of the month.

    The director of Iraq's war crimes tribunal, Salem Chalabi, said: "The suspension will continue until the sovereign Iraqi government makes a decision to lift the suspension. The Iraqi government has to affirmatively take that step to lift the suspension.

    "If the suspension imposed by ambassador Bremer is lifted then there is the possibility of the death penalty being imposed."

    Speaking on BBC1's Breakfast with Frost, Mr Chalabi said talks were under way with coalition forces over the handing over of Iraqi prisoners.

    He said they would be transferred "relatively soon" after the June 30 handover of power.

    But it would be "some time" before the trials were started. The first step was to issue arrest warrants before investigations were started properly. Charges would be filed over the next few months.

    He also said "hundreds if not thousands" of witnesses were coming forward with information and a witness protection scheme would be set up.

    Mr Chalabi sought to allay concerns over the security of prisoners. He said it was his "absolute priority".

    And he insisted Iraqi judges were up to the task of trying prisoners. The judicial system was set up by the British in the 1920s and was "a pretty decent system" but had been "played around with" by the previous regime. Mr Chalabi said work was now under way to re-establish the independence of the judiciary and train judges.

        The only problem is going to be making him into a martyr. There will be pilgrimages to where he was executed, and mass gatherings at his grave.:bowdown:

            yeah, good point! What they need to do is have a lengthy trial exhibiting all the atrocities committed by the man. This will show the masses how despicable this man is to his own countrymen!

              How about we just drop in the middle of Baghdad and have the Iraqi people deal with him. He shouldn't last long.

                It would certainly help, but there are still people that worship Hitler, and Stalin.bang:

                  sad, but true! I'm probably just naive, but I cannot understand these people.

                    If he is executed then he could become a martyr.

                    If he is imprisoned for life we run the risk of some supports breaking him out.

                      He needs to die. He needs to be with the Pig Latin Twins. Now if some excuse can be made to off his daughters. That whole family line needs to be stopped.

                      I have no doubt that an Iraqi court will sentenace him to death. Probably by hanging, its considered very undignified.

                      IMO a opinion he won't be a martyr, or we would be seeing the same the PLT's.

                          he might land among his most ardent of supporters. Handing him over to the Iraqi Kurds is a better option. :thumb:

                              Yeah, give him to the Kurds..............that might be the closest to true justice that we'll see with Saddam. It's really a shame he can die only once.
