Saddam Hussein nephew receives long prison sentence

BAGHDAD, Iraq – On Dec. 5, a Baghdad court found Aymen Sabawi, Saddam Hussein’s nephew - a former regime insider and once-active terrorist supporter - guilty of illegally crossing the Syrian border without authorization from Iraqi customs.

He received a lengthy sentence in addition to a six-year sentence he received during his September trial when he was found guilty of possession of illegal weapons and manufacture of explosive devices.

It was during his September trial that Sabawi, while testifying, submitted self-incriminating information when he spoke of the illegal border crossing.
