Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti

Redirected from Barzan Ibrahim Hasan

Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti is one of three half brother of Saddam Hussein and former leader of the Iraqi secret service, Mukhabarat.

Up to 1995, he handled Saddam's personal fortune. This task was then taken over by a network of foreign brokes, since Saddam had decided that no-one in Iraq could be trusted to this task.

US officials characterized him as a member of what they called "Saddam's Dirty Dozen", responsible for torture and murder in Iraq. He was captured by American forces on April 17, 2003.
