Iraq’s fugitive Vice President Tareq al-Hashemi, who was sentenced to death by hanging by a court in Iraq on the weekend, spoke to France 24 on Wednesday about the charges against him. 

Al-Hashemi, a leading Sunni Arab politician currently in exile in Turkey, was tried in absentia on charges that he ran death squads.

Al-Hashemi dismissed the "politically motivated" charges against him but ruled out returning to Iraq until his security is guaranteed and he is assured of a fair trial.
