Interpol Issues Arrest Warrant For Raghad Hussein

Like father like daughter…
Raghad Hussein and her mother were placed on Iraq’s most wanted list last year.

Raghad, pictured with her father Saddam Hussein, is following in his footsteps. Today Interpol issued a warrant for her arrest on terrorism charges.
The BBC reported:

Interpol has circulated an arrest warrant for the oldest daughter of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. Raghad Saddam Hussein, who fled the US-invasion of Iraq in 2003, is accused of terrorism and other offences.

She helped organise the legal defence of her father, who was hanged last December for crimes against humanity.

Last year Iraq put Raghad and her mother, Sajida, on a list of its most wanted fugitives, alleging they supported the insurgency in Iraq.

The Iraqi Interior Ministry told the BBC Interpol had notified member countries on Friday.

Before her father was executed last year, Raghad asked for his body to be buried temporarily in Yemen until, she said, such time as coalition forces were expelled from Iraq.

Raghad’s husband was murdered in cold blood by her father Saddam when he returned to Iraq after a stay in Jordan where he snitched on Saddam’s nuclear program.
She remained a staunch supporter of her father.
