Court to give Saddam verdict on November 5The verdict of the US backed court was delayed from October 16th to just 2 days before US midterm elections.
A court trying Saddam Hussein for killing Shi'ites in the 1980s could deliver its verdict on November 5, officials said.
The U.S.-backed court was due to announce on Monday a final date for verdicts on the ousted Iraqi leader and seven of his former top lieutenants for crimes against humanity, a charge which carries a maximum penalty of death by hanging.
I'm sure it's just a coincidence.
