LONDON Jul 18, 2005 — A lawyer for Saddam Hussein said Monday that Iraq's insurgency has made Baghdad far too dangerous a venue for the former
leader's trial, and that the proceedings should be moved to another country.
Giovanni di Stefano said Saddam's defense team has contacted the Swedish government about the possibility of holding a trial there. But Swedish
Justice Ministry spokesman Alexander Valentin said Monday that he was not aware of any official request.
"Do you fancy spending a year or more in Baghdad, going to court five days a week? Would you feel safe there?" di Stefano said in an interview with
The Associated Press.

I don't think that Saddam's trial should be moved from the country of where his crimes were done. He should face up like a man to what he did in
front of his own people. I will be seriously surprised if the Swedish Government allows the trial to take place within their country.
