Dr Mahathir strikes again. In the case where a lawyer of one of Saddam Hussein’s co-defendants was assassinated, Mahathir correctly put the responsibility of protecting defence attorneys on the occupying powers, the USA and UK.
Mahathir is co-chair of the international Emergency Committee for Iraq, formed in June to ensure Saddam’s trial is fair. He wants the UN to investigate into the circumstances of the lawyer’s death.
Your honour, the defence rest!
