LDN Talks @ Night |The Trial & Execution of Saddam

Execution in Iraq: 

Behind the Scenes of the Trial & Execution of Saddam Hussein


In the dawn hours of December 2006, with a hangman’s noose about his neck, Iraq’s seemingly brutal dictator, Saddam Hussein, uttered his final words before the gallows trapdoor opened and he tumbled the few short feet to his death. Jonathan Tait-Harris, having been in Iraq from 2004 to 2006 and directly involved, takes you behind the scenes of the investigation, trial and execution of Saddam Hussein. He will paint a vivid and bold picture of the reality of Saddam’s prosecution, its fairness, its personalities, its danger, its frail egos and equip his audience with tomorrow’s ‘water-cooler moment'.

Doors will Open at 7pm, The talk will begin promptly at 7.30pm.
