Louise Arbour Appeals the Next Hangings Sentences in Iraq

I saw the story on Canadian CTV news this morning and wasn't able to find the page when I returned to copy the link. However, it is mentioned by this article from Le Monde on the New UN chief.
With the backing of the new UN chief who was recently criticised by Human Rights groups for not condemning the death sentence, leaving it as a matter to be decided by states, UN high commissioner for Human Rights, Canadian Louise Arbour, has filed a formal appeal to the sentences of Saddam's half-brother Barzan al-Tikriti and Iraq's former chief judge Awad Hamed al-Bandar. It seems that Arbour did the same with Saddam's own sentence. UN high commissioner for Human Rights website features statements voicing concerns for the way justice is being delivered in Iraq.

“the way justice is being delivered in Iraq?”

It’s delivered the Hebrew-Persian way

By bloody bearded killers high on crack

Yelling “Muqtada” Akbar while they slay
