The United Arab Emirates Khaleej Times reports that in the same ruling Ali Hassan al-Majid (aka Chemical Ali) and two other men were sentenced to death for their parts in the murders, which happened in 1992.
@APNewsAlert Former Saddam Hussein aides Tariq Aziz and 'Chemical Ali' get 15 years in jail for executions.
@afahad (Syria) I will never forget the fierce fight Tariq Aziz put up about WMD's prior to the invasion, this is a US Vendetta we will not forget easily
@afahad I loath the international society for this http://bit.ly/AP91v Tariq Aziz has serious health issues, and cannot be tried under occupation
@markhillary (London, England) Interesting to see Tariq Aziz going down for 15 years. Considering the trial involved 42 murders I wonder why he didn't get a capital trial?
@heidirettig (Oregon, USA) I kind of feel like Tariq Aziz could spent more than 15 years in prison for executing 45 people.
@bigaone22 (Trinidad, West Indies) What a lucky man, This Tariq Aziz, spared from the Gallows...
@Jojopong (Silicon Valley, USA) Great court ruling against Tariq Aziz for 15 years in prison in Iraq... you cannot be killing people and get away with it.
