This paper attempts to examine the trial of Saddam Hussein pointedly, who was a tyrannical dictator of Iraq and, in brief, the events leading to the rise of his tyrannical dictatorship. Not only is the dictator a sadistic tyrant, but has he also been reported to have conducted torture chambers conducting experiments on the dissidents of the government. The paper also examines the charges that were brought against Saddam Hussein and how the coalition forces captured and put an end to the oppression of the Iraqi people. The author seeks to find how the Iraqi Special Tribunal (IST) was set up and the criticisms the tribunal received from the international community. It is imperative to understand the political situations of Iraq before Saddam Hussein and the wars fought by Iraq under his reign with its neighbours resulting in an eventual intervention by Coalition Forces that marked the doom of Saddam’s rule.
