Raid Juhi Al-Saedi (Judge Juhi) served from 2004 to 2006 as chief investigative judge of the Iraqi High Tribunal (IHT). During that time, he supervised all cases before the tribunal and indicted Saddam Hussein and seven others for crimes against humanity perpetrated against the citizens of Ad-Dujayl. Juhi also indicted Saddam Hussein and Ali Hassan al-Majid al-Tikriti ("Chemical Ali") for genocide arising out of the massacre of over 100,000 Kurds from 1987-1988. During the trial of Saddam Hussein, Juhi served as chief investigative judge and the court’s spokesperson, handled all press queries, and frequently appeared before Western and Arabic media. Juhi also negotiated the IHT’s rules of evidence and procedure which were ultimately adopted and used in all proceedings. Previously, Juhi investigated and indicted radical Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr for the murder of cleric Abdul Majid Al-Khoei, which occurred in 2003 outside one of Shiite Islam’s holiest sites, the Shrine of Imam Ali in Najaf, Iraq. Juhi is a graduate from Baghdad University School of Law and graduate of Iraq’s Judicial Institute and served as a first instance court judge and criminal investigative judge under Saddam Hussein. He was Senior Fellow, at the United States Institute of Peace in 2008. Judge Juhi was Cornell University’s Law School as a Clarke Middle Eastern Fellow. Currently, Judge Juhi is the Cox Center’s visiting jurist in residence and LL.M. Candidate, Case Western Reserve University School of Law.
