Saddam Hussain,recently deposed dictator of Iraq ,has found a lawyer to represent him in his up coming trial.Renowned French lawyer Jacques Verges has
made a habit of taking on contraversial cases.In the past he has defended Nazi Clause Barbie and left wing revolutionary Carlos the Jackal.
The French lawyer known for defending Nazi war criminal Klaus Barbie and guerrilla Carlos the Jackal said Saturday that Saddam Hussein's nephew had
chosen him to represent the deposed Iraqi president.
Jacques Verges told Reuters in a telephone interview he had received a letter from Ali Barzan al-Tikriti, whose father Barzan al-Tikriti is Saddam's
half-brother, asking him to defend the former Iraqi dictator, captured by U.S. forces in December.
I think there is little doubt in the verdict but I'm pleased such an eminent lawyer is defending him.If/when he he found guilty no one can say that
he had proper represention which is far more than his victims received.
