Heshamudin Hesam

On 14 October 2005, the District Court of The Hague found Hesamuddin Hesam guilty of complicity to torture and violations of the laws and customs of war, committed in Afghanistan in the 1980s and 1990s. He was sentenced to 12 years' imprisonment.

On 29 January 2007, The Hague Court of Appeal upheld the convictions and prison sentences as did the Dutch Supreme Court did on 9 July 2008.

Hesam was the head of the military intelligence service, the KhAD-e-Nezamy and deputy minister of the Ministry of State Security (WAD).
