Iraq’s high tribunal has passed a death sentence on Tareq Aziz, once the international face of dictator Saddam Hussein’s regime, over the persecution of religious parties, the court said.

The death sentence was the first to be handed down to Aziz, who was well known in foreign capitals and at the UN before Saddam’s downfall. He rose to prominence at the time of Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait and the 1991 Gulf War, when he was foreign minister.

“The court today issued the death sentence on Tareq Aziz and four others for committing crimes against humanity. The charge of elimination of religious parties was classified as crimes against humanity,” Judge Mohammed Abdul-Sahib, a spokesman of the Iraqi High Tribunal, said.

“The nature of the crimes is willful killing, torture and the enforced disappearance of persons.”

Maybe Saddam rope trick will happen to Aziz too.
