[JURIST] Former Qatari justice minister Najib al-Nuaimi has said that any attempt by the Iraqi government to extradite Saddam Hussein's first wife Sajida [Wikipedia profile] from her current presumed residence in Qatar would fail. Al-Nuaimi, currently a member of Saddam Hussein's defense team, told AFP in an interview published Tuesday that extradition would require adherence to certain procedures and that criteria such as a court conviction against Sajida and an extradition treaty with Qatar were lacking.
Sajida was named by Iraqi officials [JURIST report] Sunday as one of Iraq's 41 most-wanted fugitives [list], with the following notation: "Main source of guidance, logistic support, funds terrorism in Iraq. She has access to Iraqi riches stolen by Saddam." Her daughter Raghdad, now under royal protection in Jordan, was also named in a lesser capacity. AFP has more.
