Death sentences for no other reason than that Tariq Aziz and his colleagues were part of the legitimate government of Iraq

Open Letter to UN High Commissioner for Human Rights


Ms Navanethem Pillay,
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights,
United Nations,

Dear Ms Navanethem Pillay and Colleagues,

I am forwarding this self explanatory alert, as is.

Iraq has been illegally invaded, occupied and decimated. Surely the UN cannot sit by as these terrible executions – pogroms – go ahead. Death sentences for no other reason than that Mr Aziz and his colleagues were part of the legitimate, sovereign government of Iraq – a “sovereignty and territorial integrity” which was guaranteed by the UN itself, prior to the invasion. 

Iraq was one of the earliest signaturies to the UN Charter, fourth, when it was opened up beyond the original twenty six initial invitees.

In the name of humanity, I beg you to intervene. Silence is surely complicity in shameful, illegal, barbaric murders. Surely the UN Human Rights Commission will not stand by in silence, as a repeat of the horrendous lynching of Saddam Hussein is planned – multiply.   

From the bottom of my heart, I appeal to you in the matter of extreme urgency, in the name of our common humanity. The humanity of: “We the people …”

Attached are four articles, as an over view. Most recent at top.

Thank you,

Yours sincerely,

Felicity Arbuthnot (Dr.Hon., Phil.)
