Saddam Hussein's trial postponed
Iraq, Politics, 11/29/2005
The Iraqi special court for the trial of the toppled Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and seven of his top aides on Monday adjourned the trial until December 1st in order to enable the defense team to make needed preparations.
The chairman of the court Rezkar Muhammad Amin decided three hours after the launch of the session of Monday to postpone the trial for one week in order to give accused man Taha Yassin Ramadan the opportunity to get legal representation, after the killing of two members of the defence team, and the fleeing of a third defense lawyer from Iraq after he had received threats to be killed following the first session of the trial in October this year.
The judge had permitted Former US Attorney General, Ramsey Clark, and former minister of justices of Qatar, Najib al-Numeimi, to join the defense team as consultants.
