Iraq: the terrible state murder of Abed Hamid Hamoud

On 10 June 2012, the Centre for Research on Globalisation (CRG), an independent research and media organization based in Montreal, reported on its website at that “shocking details have emerged from an impeccable source (not named for obvious reasons)” of the execution on 7 June, in Baghdad, of Abed Hamid Hamoud, President Saddam Hussein’s former personal secretary and aide.


Hamoud was sentenced to death in October 2010 with former Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Tareq Aziz and former intelligence chief Sadoun Shakir, heightening fears for their imminent execution.


“What you have not heard”, states the commentator,  “is that (Mr Hamoud) was led to his execution whilst under the impression that he was going for a medical check-up. The Iraqi government didn’t even notify his family or relatives or make arrangements with them to deliver his body.”


A chilling observation on America and Britain’s “New Iraq” is that the Maliki government is “… so intent on revenge that they have waived the formalities of telling a person they were taking him to his execution.”


Deep concern is expressed for the fate of both Tareq Aziz and Sadoun Shakir in the light of this appalling act. They were sentenced at the same Court hearing.


Prime Minister Nuri al Maliki’s Press Secretary stated earlier this year that they would execute Tareq Aziz,  “… and now that they are done with the formalities, there is nothing to stop them.


“The world must know what these people have done and what I am sure they will do, God forbid, in the near future”, concludes our contact bleakly, pleading that pressure be brought to “stop what they are planning to do” in the case of Tareq Aziz, Sadoun Shakir and many others.
