Iraq

Iraq Hangs 13 for insurgency role.

In October, the Iraqi Transitional National Assembly passed a new law which extended the use of the death penalty to include “those who commit… terror acts” and for “those who provoke, plan, finance and all those who enable terrorists to commit these crimes”.

The assembly also approved a sentence of life imprisonment to “whoever intentionally conceals terrorist activity or gives shelter to a terrorist for the purpose of hiding him”.

I’m pretty iffy about the death penalty, but, they have it. They purposely voted it in, and these are the first executions for terror related activities to actually happen there. Now to see how this effects other would be terrorists.

One thought on “Iraq

  1. It will be interesting to see if carrying out the death penalty will deter anyone or not.
