Arrest warrant sought for Tony Blair

An arrest warrant for former British prime minister Tony Blair is being sought by the Society for the Protection of our Constitution (Spoc).

?We filed a complaint with the SA Police Service yesterday and a ?crimes against the state? docket was opened,? Muhammed Vawda, secretary of Spoc, said today.

?A case number was issued and it will go to the National Director of Public Prosecutions for a decision.?

Blair and former US president George W Bush were found guilty in absentia of crimes against humanity by the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal in November last year.

They were also found guilty of genocide for their roles in the Iraq War.The tribunal was presided over by five judges.

The court acknowledged that the verdict was non-enforceable, but the findings were reported to the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

The Daily Maverick reported that the official UK government inquiry into the Iraq War, the Chilcot Inquiry, is only set to release a report late into 2013, which will run more than 1-million words.

It reported that part of the delay was due to a row over whether Cabinet officials were willing to publish certain sensitive documents, such as notes passed between Blair and Bush, and records of their conversations.

The inquiry held public hearings between the end of 2009 and the beginning of 2011 on matters including the background to the war.

Blair is in South Africa this week as one of the speakers at the Discovery Leadership Summit at the Sandton Convention Centre today.

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu withdrew from the summit yesterday because of Blair?s attendance.

The Muslim political party Al Jama-ah said it planned to protest against Blair when he spoke at the summit.

Vawda said South Africa was legally bound to the requirements of international law, as it fell under the United Nations jurisdiction, and therefore was compelled to co-operate.

?Legally speaking, we expect to get the warrant?all the grounds are there?there is no obstacle,? said Vawda.

South Africa must operate without fear, favour or prejudice, he said, adding that the judiciary, police and National Directorate for Public Prosecutions must not bow down to political pressure.

National Prosecuting Authority spokeswoman Phindile Louw said she would comment on the matter after checking on the complaint.

I agree. There was an "Arrest Tony Blair" campaign, which faltered; but as far as I could make out, it was the unlawful intervention of his hired security and their strong-arm tactics that got in the way.  >:( Surely they were open to indictment for preventing his arrest for treason?

IMHO there needs to be many possees of different nationalities organised, timed to perfection and ready to 'spring a trap', wherever on the planet he may choose to appear in public! He is an Outlaw under basic Common Law and should be treated as such until he is caught and tried for Treason against the Crown and the People, in this country.

Abroad, he takes his life into his own hands. However he will eventually scuttle back to England where he knows that the very human beings he has lied and cheated-on, will be far more tolerant! (or should that be, far more stupid!). Ooops!  ;)

Tutu calls for trial of war criminals Blair, Bush
Sun Sep 2, 2012 1:19AM GMT

Archbishop Desmond Tutu has called for war criminals former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and former US President George W. Bush to be tried at an international court.
 

In an article published in the British paper Observer, the Nobel Peace Prize winner wrote that both Blair and Bush committed crimes of aggression when they launched an invasion against Iraq in March 2003, and they should be castigated for their crimes.
 
"Those responsible should be treading the same path as some of their African and Asian peers who have been made to answer for their actions in The Hague," said the Archbishop.
 
Tutu blamed the Middle East?s troubles on the invasion of Iraq and said that the military adventurism has divided the world more than "any other conflict in history".
 
"The then leaders of the US and Britain fabricated the grounds to behave like playground bullies and drive us further apart. They have driven us to the edge of a precipice where we now stand -- with the spectre of Syria and Iran before us,? Archbishop Tutu added.
 
The Archbishop stressed that the former leaders lied about weapons of mass destruction.
 
"Even greater costs have been exacted beyond the killing fields in the hardened hearts and minds of members of the human family across the world,? he wrote.
 
"The Archbishop is of the view that Mr Blair's decision to support the US military invasion of Iraq, on the basis of unproven allegations of the existence in Iraq of weapons of mass destruction, was morally indefensible,? said Roger Friedman, a spokesman for Archbishop Tutu.
 
Earlier in the week, the archbishop dodged a leadership event in South Africa in protest at the presence of Tony Blair.

Desmond Tutu calls for Blair and Bush to be tried over Iraq Archbishop Desmond Tutu has been a long time critic of the war in Iraq
Tony Blair and George W Bush should be taken to the International Criminal Court in The Hague over the Iraq war, Archbishop Desmond Tutu has said.

Writing in the UK's Observer newspaper, he accused the former leaders of lying about weapons of mass destruction.

The Iraq military campaign had made the world more unstable "than any other conflict in history", he said.

Mr Blair responded by saying "this is the same argument we have had many times with nothing new to say".

'Playground bullies'
 
Earlier this week, Archbishop Tutu, a veteran peace campaigner who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 in recognition of his campaign against apartheid, pulled out of a leadership summit in Johannesburg because he refused to share a platform with Mr Blair.

The former Archbishop of Cape Town said the US- and UK-led action launched against Saddam's regime in 2003 had brought about conditions for the civil war in Syria and a possible Middle East conflict involving Iran.

"The then leaders of the United States [Mr Bush] and Great Britain [Mr Blair] fabricated the grounds to behave like playground bullies and drive us further apart. They have driven us to the edge of a precipice where we now stand - with the spectre of Syria and Iran before us," he said.

He added: "The question is not whether Saddam Hussein was good or bad or how many of his people he massacred. The point is that Mr Bush and Mr Blair should not have allowed themselves to stoop to his immoral level."

Archbishop Tutu said the death toll as a result of military action in Iraq since 2003 was grounds for Mr Blair and Mr Bush to be tried in The Hague.

But he said different standards appeared to be applied to Western leaders.

He said: "On these grounds, alone, in a consistent world, those responsible should be treading the same path as some of their African and Asian peers who have been made to answer for their actions in The Hague."

Chemical weapons
 
In response to Sunday's article, Mr Blair issued a strongly worded defence of his decisions.

He said: "To repeat the old canard that we lied about the intelligence [on weapons of mass destruction] is completely wrong as every single independent analysis of the evidence has shown.

"And to say that the fact that Saddam massacred hundreds of thousands of his citizens is irrelevant to the morality of removing him is bizarre.

"We have just had the memorials both of the Halabja massacre, where thousands of people were murdered in one day by Saddam's use of chemical weapons, and that of the Iran-Iraq war where casualties numbered up to a million, including many killed by chemical weapons.

"In addition, his slaughter of his political opponents, the treatment of the Marsh Arabs and the systematic torture of his people make the case for removing him morally strong. But the basis of action was as stated at the time."

He added: "In short this is the same argument we have had many times with nothing new to say. But surely in a healthy democracy people can agree to disagree.

"I would also point out that despite the problems, Iraq today has an economy three times or more in size, with child mortality rate cut by a third of what it was. And with investment hugely increased in places like Basra."

Tony Blair responds to Archbishop Tutu?s opinion piece in this week?s Observer
Saturday, Sep 01, 2012 in Office of Tony Blair


In this week's Observer newspaper, Archbishop Desmond Tutu explains why he withdrew from the Discovery Leadership Summit in Johannesburg. The following is a response from Tony Blair:

?I have a great respect for Archbishop Tutu's fight against apartheid - where we were on the same side of the argument - but to repeat the old canard that we lied about the intelligence is completely wrong as every single independent analysis of the evidence has shown.

"And to say that the fact that Saddam massacred hundreds of thousands of his citizens is irrelevant to the morality of removing him is bizarre. We have just had the memorials both of the Halabja massacre where thousands of people were murdered in one day by Saddam's use of chemical weapons; and that of the Iran-Iraq war where casualties numbered up to a million including many killed by chemical weapons. In addition his slaughter of his political opponents, the treatment of the Marsh Arabs and the systematic torture of his people make the case for removing him morally strong. But the basis of action was as stated at the time.

"In short this is the same argument we have had many times with nothing new to say. But surely in a healthy democracy people can agree to disagree. I would also point out that, despite the problems, Iraq today has an economy three times or more in size with child mortality rate cut by a third of what it was. And with investment hugely increased in places like Basra."

1. Tony Blair glibly points out that the child mortality rate in Iraq has been cut by a third. He's not mentioned the apalling birth defects caused to probably a million, Iraqi children by the depleted uranium ammunition used by Britain and America during that unlawful, never mind illegal, war on Iraq for simple Regime Change.  >:(

2. He talks of the investment in Iraq. Yes, but the main benefactor is once again,  Halliburton; one of the most insidious corporations in America, that inevitably makes huge financial gains from every NWO-instigated, war, tsunami, earthquake, or any other disaster organised by the criminally insane!
