Ramezanzadeh said that only an international court would be fit for trying Saddam. ‘We want the crimes of Iraq’s dictator to be examined in a competent international court,’ he said. ‘Those equipping the Iraqi dictator to impose three big crises on the region must be exposed in the court,’ Ramezanzadeh told reporters in Tehran, referring to US/UK support Saddam received in the Iran-Iraq war. Iran’s calls for an international court, to be modeled on those in The Hague, Rwanda and Sierra Leone, have been reaffirmed by leading international lawyers and non-governmental organisations.
