Today, Saturday, an American army officer revealed new details of the trial and execution of the former Iraqi president, Saddam Hussein, and the United States' attempt to make the trial "fair."
Marine Lieutenant Paul Shimpf said during an interview with the American newspaper The Daily Journal, translated by (Baghdad Today), that "as a result of my possession of a university degree in law, I was asked to work as a consultant for the Iraqi prosecution in the trial," pointing out that he "assumed several responsibilities Among them was finding witnesses, securing them, and transferring them to Iraq to testify against Saddam Hussein," he said.
Shemph added, "Many American officers and legal officials served the Iraqi judiciary during Saddam Hussein's trial to secure a (fair trial)", the most important of which was "finding witnesses against the regime among its victims and securing their access to court, to protect them from Saddam's followers, who Many times they tried to kill them."
Shempf also described his presence in the same room in which Saddam Hussein was, during interviews with his defense team, that the American advisors "provided advice to Saddam Hussein's defense team in his presence in a tense atmosphere," likening his presence with Saddam to "it was like sitting with Adolf Hitler."
