Iraqi Official. He was an Iraqi chief judge under Saddam Hussein's presidency. He was the head of the Revolutionary Court which issued death sentences against 143 Dujail residents, in the aftermath of the failed assassination attempt against Hussein on July 8, 1982. At the Al-Dujail trial the Iraqi Special Tribunal tried Awad for crimes against humanity for issuing the death sentences. On November 5, 2006, Awad was sentenced to death by hanging along with co-defendants Saddam Hussein and Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti (Saddam Hussein's half-brother). He was taken to the same gallows where Hussein was executed and was hanged simultaneously along with Ibrahim al-Tikriti.
