Tariq Aziz next for trial in Iraq

Do you remember him? The man minister-clown of Saddam? Iraq’s former Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz is due on trial over the deaths of a group of merchants in 1992.

Mr. Aziz, along with seven other former members of Saddam Hussein’s regime, are accused of involvement in the execution of about 40 merchants in Baghdad.

The merchants were accused of hiking food prices at a time when Iraq was under international sanctions. They were executed after a speedy trial. Mr. Aziz’s son, Ziad, has said that his father is innocent.

He’s innocent? Man since when cruelty is an excuse for being innocent? I think the question now is how guilty is Iraqi justice and they will execute another one, otherwise the man is not innocent is guilty to everything and should spend life in prison.
