Sadr Shouldn't Be Above the Law
Hayder al-Khoei, The Guardian
Moqtada al-Sadr has finally returned to Najaf in Iraq after almost four years of self-imposed exile.

However, there was another thorny issue behind his absence: Sadr is still wanted by the Iraqi judiciary for his alleged involvement in my father's murder eight years ago.
