Saddam judge flees Iraq
March 9 - The Iraqi judge who sentenced Saddam Hussein to death has fled Iraq and sought asylum in the UK.
Al Jazeera's correspondent in London quoted British official sources as saying that Raouf Abdel-Rahman, a member of Iraq's Kurdish minority, has requested political asylum in Britain with his family.
Abdel-Rahman headed the Supreme Iraq Criminal Tribunal that heard Saddam's genocide trial and found the former Iraqi president guilty, leading to his execution.
Saddam was accused of killing more than a hundred Shia in the village of Dujail following a failed assassination attempt on him.
Saddam was hanged in the early hours of December 30. Lagi di alJazeera
