Al-Majeed had been sentenced to death in four separate trials, including one that focused on his involvement in a poison gas attack against Iraqi Kurds that killed about 5,000 people.
His execution had been delayed for political rather than legal reasons. It is not clear what change, if any, led to the reported execution.
Al-Majeed had been held in United States custody since his capture in 2003. But he was handed over to the Iraqi authorities in the 24 hours before his execution, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Hill told CNN’s Diana Magnay on Monday.
Ali Hassan al-Majeed was born on November 30th, 1941 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ali_Hassan_al-Majeed
11 + 30 +2+0+0+9 = 52 = his personal year (from November 30th, 2009 to November 29th, 2010)
52 year + 12 (December) = 64 = his personal month (from December 30th, 2009 to January 29th, 2010) = Conclusion. Finality. End.
