Title: PROSECUTOR V. AL-MAJID, ANFAL CAMPAIGN CASE, TRIAL JUDGMENT, IRAQI HIGH TRIBUNAL
Language of Translation: ARABIC
Release date: 2021
In the Anfal trial, the Iraqi High Tribunal (IHT) in Baghdad convicted former Iraqi high officials of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. Unlike its predecessor-the Dujail trial'-the Anfal trial included the presentation of a high volume of documentary and eye-witness evidence. This evidence clearly revealed the existence of a genocidal campaign by the former Iraqi government and military that eliminated an estimated 182,0002 Iraqi Kurds in 1988, as part of the eight-phased Anfal campaign (the Anfal). Relying on this and other evidence, judges in the Anfal Trial Chamber explained fairly persuasively how genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes were committed against the Iraqi Kurds.
