Families of the victims of the 1988 chemical attack on Iraqi Kurdish city of Halabja are taking legal action against foreign firms for supplying chemical substances to the country’s former dictator Saddam Hussein, Press TVreports.

Head of Halabja’s Chemical Victims Society Luqman Abdul-Qadir has called on the relatives of the victims to file lawsuits against the firms that armed the Iraqi dictator with chemical weapons.

“Firstly, the people who committed these crimes cannot ignore this case because they are part of the crime. Secondly, it’s to make sure that crimes like Halabja will not happen again because they may happen again somewhere else if not dealt with accordingly, and thirdly, it’s to compensate the families of the victims,” Addul-Qadir said.​
Almost 750 people have reportedly registered lawsuits so far. Studies suggest that the chemical arms came from countries like Germany, France, Britain and the United States.

I wish them the best of luck and hopefully justice will be deliverer to these poor families. In my book the people who supplied Saddam with these weapons are guilty as well.
