Washington D.C. (PRWEB) July 20, 2006
Tariq Aziz’s lawyer Giovanni Di Stefano has made a full application to the United States Supreme Court and stated that he “places the US on notice of a Habeas Corpus Application to the United States Supreme Court in Forma Pauperis and compliant in accordance with 28 U.S.C. 2241(a).”
Mr Di Stefano said the question presented to the United States Supreme Court will be: “Is the turning over of Petitioner Tariq Aziz to an authority that may reasonably be expected to violate his rights to a fair trial, due process of law, and his right to life in accordance with the law?”
The United States Supreme Court has the jurisdiction to hear urgent case. Mr Di Stefano stated he would be filing with the US Supreme Court shortly.
In a letter sent to Mr Di Stefano by Tariq Aziz’s Iraqi lawyer Badie Izzat the lawyer confirmed that Tariq Aziz had now been on hunger strike for ten days and “demands to be granted his basic rights, which are provided for him by Iraqi and international law.”
Mr Di Stefano confirmed he called upon the American Bar Association and the International Bar Association for support as it did in the case involving Guantanamo detainees.
