UN: Saddam’ Trial Unfair

December 5, 2005

From The Guardian

I’m wondering what the Bush Administration will do if the jury finds him not guilty?

The UN said yesterday said that Saddam Hussein’s trial would never satisfy international standards because of ongoing violence and flaws in Iraq’s legal system

John Case, the UN’s human rights chief in Iraq, said the murder of two defence lawyers, continued threats against judges, lawyers and witnesses and weaknesses in the Iraqi justice system had caused grave doubts about the trial’s legitimacy.
