Iraq sentences 3 drug dealers to death

| @indiablooms | 06 Apr 2024, 05:41 pm

The Iraqi National Security Service (INSS) said that the Iraqi judiciary pronounced death sentences on three drug dealers, including a foreigner.

A statement by the INSS said that the three convicts were part of an international drug trafficking network that smuggled drugs into the country.

The convicts were caught red-handed and they have criminal records in drug trafficking in Iraq, the statement added.

The chaos and conflicts that have engulfed Iraq since the U.S. invasion in 2003 have impeded successive Iraqi governments from effectively addressing the threat of drugs.

In May 2023, Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia' al-Sudani underlined the importance of waging "a war on drugs," saying drug dealing remains one of the main ways of financing terrorism, and circulation of drugs flourishes in the shadow of terrorism.
