Iraq: Further information on Death penalty/Fear of imminent execution
Ahmad al-Jaf, Jasim 'Abbas and 'Uday Dawud al-Dulaimi could be executed at any time, after Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Ja'afari reportedly declared: "The President has signed three death sentences, and the next few days will see the first executions in al-Kut." Tahsin Ali Mattar reportedly appealed against his death sentence, which was handed down in a separate case on 25 May in Babil, south of Baghdad. The result of his appeal is not known.
