Former Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi blew a big surprise by saying that the body of the late President Saddam Hussein was placed between his house and the house of Nuri al-Maliki in the Green Zone in the capital, Baghdad, after his execution in 2006.

Al-Kadhimi said, during an interview with Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper, that he saw Saddam Hussein’s body lying near his house, saying that he had asked the gathered guards to move away from the body out of respect for the sanctity of the dead, he said.

He continued, saying: “I refused this work, but I saw a group of guards gathered and asked them to move away from the body out of respect for the sanctity of the dead.”

He explained that “they brought it next to my house and the house of Nuri al-Maliki, but the latter ordered at night to hand it over to one of the sheikhs of the al-Nada clan (Saddam’s clan), so they received it and then buried it in the city of Tikrit.”

And he continued: “After 2012, when the so-called ISIS organization took control of the region, Saddam’s grave was exhumed and the body was moved to a secret place that no one knows until now, and the graves of his children were tampered with.”

Mustafa Al-Kadhimi revealed that he had seen Saddam Hussein before that in the first session of his trial, saying: “I went to see the historical moment, and it was a very difficult and decisive historical moment in the history of Iraq, but unfortunately those of Saddam Hussein’s victims who attended were not at the level of responsibility.”

He continued, “They were talking about the personal gains they got, a house from here and a car from there, in the session (Saddam Hussein’s trial), and thus they minimized Saddam Hussein’s crimes.”

After the fall of Baghdad in the hands of the American forces in 2003, the search for Saddam Hussein began, who disappeared from view for about eight months.

On December 30, 2006, President Saddam Hussein was executed by hanging.

On the same night, the Iraqi government forced Saddam’s clan, which received the body, to bury it quickly in his village, “without delay for any reason,” according to an official document.
