Saddam lawyer appeals to world leaders« Thread Started on Dec 29, 2006, 5:46am » -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fri, December 29, 2006Saddam lawyer appeals to world leadersBy APread at source> ... 8-sun.html BAGHDAD -- Saddam Hussein's chief lawyer implored world leaders yesterday to prevent the U.S. from handing over the ousted leader to Iraqi authorities for execution, saying he deserves protection as a "prisoner of war." Iraq's highest court on Tuesday rejected Saddam's appeal against his conviction and death sentence for the killing of 148 Shiites in 1982. "According to the international conventions it is forbidden to hand a prisoner of war to his adversary," Saddam's lawyer, Khalil al-Dulaimi, said in Amman, Jordan. "I urge all the international and legal organizations, the United Nations secretary general, the Arab League and all the leaders of the world to rapidly prevent the American administration from handing the president to the Iraqi authorities."
