The trial of Saddam Hussein will be shown on live television, Iraq’s national security adviser said yesterday.

The trial will show the Arab and Muslim world “that this is going to be a fair, just trial with a defence counsel in there, with a proper prosecuting counsel as well there,” Iraqi national security adviser Muwaffaq Rubaie told CNN. “And everybody will watch this trial live on television.”

Personally, I don’t watch televised trials. But the fact that the Iraqi government is willing to broadcast this one speaks well of its confidence and strength.
