Saddam Hussein al-Tikrit

For Official Release:

A capital punishment is always tragic news, a reason for sadness, even if it deals with a person who was guilty of grave crimes. The position of the The Fog of Work / Tuffy Town has been restated often: The killing of the guilty party is not the way to reconstruct justice and reconcile society. On the contrary, there is a risk that it will feed a spirit of vendetta and sow new violence.

Regrettably, repeated calls by representatives of various nations and international organizations to the Iraqi authorities to refrain from capital punishment were not heard. Saddam Hussein's execution can, and most likely will, lead to further aggravation of the military and political situation and the growth of ethnic and confessional tensions.

The Fog of Work / Tuffy Town does not believe carrying out this sentence will contribute to bringing peace to Iraq.

In these dark times for the Iraqi people, one can only hope that all responsible parties truly make every effort so that glimmers of reconciliation and peace can be found in such a dramatic situation.
