New Delhi, Dec 27 (UNI) National Panthers Party Chief Bhim Singh today warned against the ''disastrous consequences'' of executing deposed Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, saying a dead Saddam could be more dangerous than a living one.

''A dead Saddam can be more dangerous than a living Saddam for the US and UK...The execution may take a moment. But its consequences will be dangerous and long-term. It is not easy to execute a Head of State and somebody who has been a powerful ruler.

It is against international law and the Doctrine of Criminal Jurisprudence,'' Mr Bhim Singh told UNI after a press conference.

He said if one had to follow such arguments of so called human rights violations by Saddam Hussein, then US President George Bush would be the biggest violator for the killing of nearly 5.5 lakh people, including children, because of sanctions imposed in Iraq before Saddam Hussein was overthrown.

Mr Bhim Singh, who was considered close to Saddam Hussein and had even volunteered to fight his case, said the former Iraqi ruler would never appeal to the current President for cleemency because he (Saddam) does not recognise him as Iraqi President.

In all probability, he would be executed. ''However, there is always a slip between cup and the lip. I hope better sense will prevail on the US and Saddam would not be executed,'' he said.
