Kurdish Judge Who Ordered Saddam Hanged is Alive and Well

The Kurdish judge who sentenced former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein to death is alive and well, contrary to international media reports he was executed by the jihadi-led insurgents blazing across Iraq, a Kurdish official and a family member told Rudaw.

A spokesperson for the Kurdistan Regional Government’s (KRG) Ministry of Justice in Erbil said he had personally spoken to Rauf Rashid Abdulrahman, the judge who sentenced Saddam to death by hanging in 2006, and that reports he had died were false.
