An Iraqi court has sentenced a man to death by hanging for involvement in slaughtering a Russian diplomat in 2006, an Iraqi judicial official was quoted as saying.
“The Central Criminal Court issued its ruling against the terrorist after he admitted to slaughtering the Russian diplomat in 2006 and then disposing of his body by throwing it into the Tigris river,” Baghdad Today quoted Abdul Sattar al-Biraqdar, the spokesman for Iraq’s Supreme Judicial Council, as saying.
According to al-Biraqdar, the terrorist was found implicated in “kidnapping four foreigners and then killing them in collaboration with other militants.”
“The court ruling was issued pursuant to article 4/1 of the anti-terrorism law,” al-Biraqdar pointed out.
