Iraq has convicted more than 500 foreign men and women of joining IS since the start of 2018 (AFP Photo/SABAH ARAR) More Baghdad (AFP) - The fate of hundreds of foreign jihadists sentenced to death or life terms in prison depends on Iraq's justice system, not the government, Prime Minister Adel Abdel Mahdi told AFP.
"We have made no promises to any country to lighten these sentences," Abdel Mahdi said in his first full-length interview with international media.
"The justice system does not allow the Iraqi state to pardon those condemned to death," he said.
It is up to Iraq's court of cassation to examine terrorism-related verdicts and either uphold, amend or scrap them.
Eleven French nationals figure among the non-Iraqis on death row, while three others have been sentenced to life in jail, having been found guilty of belonging to the Islamic State (IS) group.
So far, no executions have been carried out, and a German woman's death sentence was commuted to life in prison on appeal.

Kill em all.
And make them Ride the Lightning.
They were/are SICK!!
They sewed up a woman’s vagine 19 TIMES so she would be like a “virgin’ again!!!
Death is almost too easy for them.
Slave labor in mines until they drop would be good.
I had to look it up :)
I’m assuming you meant the electric chair and not the Metallica song?
I don’t know the song, but it’s what first came up.
Jerry S.: “Oh, that a shame...”
No dude, like the killer here in El Paso. I’d like a public hanging and leave the body hanging until the vultures are done, or I’d gladly pour molasses over him and bring some fire ants. As a matter of fact let’s let the ants work first.
That punishment with media coverage would for sure deter all the rest of the school shooting. I’d rather remember these deranged fools this way rather than the media pushing and making them famous.
I’ve heard “ride the lightning” somewhere but not Metallica or in reference to the electric chair either.
ride the lightning. To be put to death by means of the electric chair. Primarily heard in US. ... We’re going to make sure you ride the lightning for what you’ve done!
BTW here's the SOURCE
Works for me although life imprisonment sounds like too light a punishment.
I’d love that too.
Does the “cruel and unusual” thing apply to non citizen terrorists?
I admit being weak on the Constitution.
We KNOW there was cruel and unusual during the civil war on both sides. It happens in war. War IS cruel.
And this IS a war.
That’s a pretty sick saying :)
boy the chair’s gotta hurt!
Or at least leave a mark!
To fit the crime, there is no cruel or whatever. It would surely be a deterrent. Just post em down Indian style. I’ve got more than enough fire ants.
I think I can safely say I don’t know and probably never will. But I certainly wasn’t dying to find out. 8>)
I’m not talking as a liberal. I want them to suffer TERRIBLY.
But I also believe the Constitution is dead. I like it that way. It’s not breathing, like slick Willy said.
It does kinda say no cruel and unusual punishment.
We can send them to a country that has no constitution :)
I’m sure the Kurds would take them!
It’s only 1:35. The woman is asleep and I dont feel like watching a movie.
Darn people on this board go to bed so early!!
Oh well, where’s that bottle of JD?
I dunno, I saw they got that island there somewhere in NYC, maybe to be PETA friendly we can drop off about 5 lions then take the ISIS, school shooters and drop them off. BUT, we must show video to show this is your fate.
haha, rum and coke over here
