Read this and searched for it here, Thought it would be of intrest.

Iraqi authorities charged Saddam Hussein with genocide yesterday, accusing him of trying to exterminate the Kurds in a 1980s campaign that killed an estimated 100,000 -- the first move to prosecute him for the human rights violations that the U.S. cited to justify its invasion.

Found an online book on this subject, Makes for emotional reading.

This report is a narrative account of a campaign of extermination against the Kurds of northern Iraq. It is the product of over a year and a half of research, during which a team of Middle East Watch researchers has analyzed several tons of captured Iraqi government documents and carried out field interviews with more than 350 witnesses, most of them survivors of the 1988 campaign known as Anfal. It concludes that in that year the Iraqi regime committed the crime of genocide.

Seems this Kangaroo court keeps moving the goalposts in it's charges against ol' Saddam

I'm sure any real criminal court would have completely collapsed by now and freed the accused
