The Shabby Affair

Amnesty International has said that it "deplores" the death penalty given to Saddam Hussein.

Malcolm Smart, speaking on behalf of Amnesty, said:

"[The trial] has been a shabby affair, marred by serious flaws that call into question the capacity of the tribunal, as currently established, to administer justice fairly, in conformity with international standards."

If Saddam's appeal fails, it is likely he will be dead by Christmas; irrespective of the status of his current trial.
