Hussein to Be in Iraqi Custody 'Very Soon,' New Premier Says

Iyad Allawi, the tough-talking doctor who this week will become the new interim prime minister of an unruly Iraq, said Sunday that Saddam Hussein would be physically transferred to the custody of Iraqis “very, very soon,” probably within a few days after the Iraqis officially take power on Wednesday. “We have the forces,” he told several reporters in an interview. “We have the judicial system, and he is going to go to court. It’s going to be a just trial, unlike the trials that he gave to the Iraqi people.” Dr. Allawi’s comments were corroborated by Muwafak al-Rubaie, the new interim government’s national security adviser, who said in an interview with CBS News that American soldiers would escort a handcuffed Mr. Hussein from his cell and turn him over to four Iraqi policemen for a formal arrest before an Iraqi judge, “either hopefully the second or third of July.”Full Story
