Saddam Stopped Appeal

Saddam Hussein, in his final will, dictated to his principal Iraqi defence counsel Khalil al-Dulaimi 24 hours before his December 30 execution, instructed his legal team to stop all appeals.

He stated that the impending execution was the work of US and Iranian collaboration.

The document instructed his lawyers to "decide whatever is related to me except appealing for the life of Saddam Hussein to any of the presidents, kings, Arabs or foreigners."

Seemingly the UK appealed to Iraq to stop the excecution, contrary to US wishes, but was ignored.
