No justice in Iraq






THE prisoners below were paraded in Iraq yesterday and all face execution – even though they’ve not been tried.The 39 handcuffed men, in orange boiler suits, are suspected of being al-Qaeda terrorists.

But they have been found guilty before facing a trial. Interior Minister Jawad al-Bolani told a news conference in Baghdad: “Our demand is not to delay the carrying out of the executions against these criminals in order to deter terrorist and criminal elements.”


It makes a mockery of the millions of pounds America has spent on trying to introduce a western-style legal system into the country.The men were said to be Sunni Muslims from west Iraq – although one with blond hair appeared to be a Westerner.
