Who was Saadoun Sughaiyer al-Janabi?
Known as a defence attorney during the Hussein Trials, Saadoun antar nassif al-Janabi was one of two lawyers representing Awad Hamed al-Bandar. He was the head of defense team in the trial.
Ten masked gunmen wearing Iraqi Police uniforms abducted al-Janabi, who was reportedly cooperative, from the office in his Baghdad home on October 20, 2005, one day after the trial began. His body was recovered outside an Ur mosque the following day with two gunshots to the head. Dheyaa al-Saadi, a lawyer who the following year led the Iraqi Bar Association, criticised the assassination, stating "This will have grave repercussions. This will hinder lawyers from defending those held for political reasons."
