Saadoun Sughaiyer al-Janabi

Known as a defence attorney during the Hussein Trials, Saadoun Sughaiyer al-Janabi was one of two lawyers representing Awad Hamed al-Bandar.

Ten masked gunmen wearing Iraqi Police uniforms abducted al-Janabi, who was reportedly cooperative, from the office in his Baghdad home on October 20th 2005, one day after the trial began. His body was recovered outside an Ur mosque the following day with two gunshots to the head.
