Torture Charges Filed Against George W. Bush by Montreal 9/11 Truth

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1sAdNfGj7E

On October 22, 2009, George W. Bush came to Montreal to give a speech. Under Canadian law, once someone who has authorized or engaged in torture enters Canada, they can be tried in Canada for torture even if they are not Canadian. Montreal 9/11 Truth was ready with all the paperwork and that morning, the charges were filed.

More info after the jump...

Our court date will most likely be in January or February 2010 and we will receive a notice informing us of the exact date one month before the actual court date. We will keep you informed with new developments as we get them.

For those seeking more information about the torture charges:

Charges were filed under section 269 of the Criminal Code of Canada, which states:

269.1 (1) Every official, or every person acting at the instigation of or with the consent or acquiescence of an official, who inflicts torture on any other person is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding fourteen years.

(2) For the purposes of this section,

official means
(a) a peace officer,
(b) a public officer,
(c) a member of the Canadian Forces, or
(d) any person who may exercise powers, pursuant to a law in force in a foreign state, that would, in Canada, be exercised by a person referred to in paragraph (a), (b), or (c),

whether the person exercises powers in Canada or outside Canada;

torture means any act or omission by which severe pain or suffering, whether physical or mental, is intentionally inflicted on a person
(a) for a purpose including

(i) obtaining from the person or from a third person information or a statement,

(ii) punishing the person for an act that the person or a third person has committed or is suspected of having committed, and

(iii) intimidating or coercing the person or a third person, or
(b) for any reason based on discrimination of any kind,

but does not include any act or omission arising only from, inherent in or incidental to lawful sanctions.

(3) It is no defence to a charge under this section that the accused was ordered by a superior or a public authority to perform the act or omission that forms the subject-matter of the charge or that the act or omission is alleged to have been justified by exceptional circumstances, including a state of war, a threat of war, internal political instability or any other public emergency.

(4) In any proceedings over which Parliament has jurisdiction, any statement obtained as a result of the commission of an offence under this section is inadmissible in evidence, except as evidence that the statement was so obtained.

Bravo

Sure, the odds of W being prosecuted are not very good, but only through constant pressure of this kind will anything change for the better.

We are aware...

...that the odds of this actually going to trial are slim. However we win either way. Either we go to trial or the Attorney General denies consent to the charges and they get dropped and Canadians get to see what a sham of a justice system we have. It is important that Dubya gets treated like this everywhere he goes.

Yes it's the same in Australia!

The peace movement is becoming more and more irrelevant by the day as they force us away and they lose contact with the populace by becoming supporters of the official version of 9/11!

It is obvious that they are groomed and fed inaccurate information about us, that our "Lear's" and "Fetzer's" provide with their so called opinions and research.

I have tried the nice approach with these people who refuse us a voice and treat us with disdain and contempt but as the years pass it is now apparent that they are useless and are failing in numbers and power.

Maybe we need to take back the peace movement from there hands by forming truth based peace groups that do not limit themselves to shoe throwing and banner waving rather aim at prosecution, truth and justice?

Thanks for the story you told with these videos, it is both typical and enlightening for us who can see!

Kind regards John

Sounds like

a plan to me!!

Excellent

Never give up, NEVER! The real perpetrators of 9/11 are on the run because of actions like these. We will not rest until a full investigatrion is complete and justice has been served!! Thank you for being at the ready, Montreal 9/11 Truth.

the Montreal events

The Montreal group is to be congratulated on the filing of torture charges against Bush. It all looks very well done, and it's a big contribution to the movement.

The other videos about the event in Montreal, in which the group gets into a conflict with Jaggi Singh and associates, mad me quite sad. I do not think calling Singh an agent was a cool thing to do, and it seems to have brought out the worst in Singh and company so that the result was a real mess. I hope apologies and dialogue between the groups will be on the agenda.

A general comment about dealing with the Left in Canada. As a member of the Left in Canada myself, I find the mainstream leaders, for the most part, quite obtuse when it comes to 9/11, and I'm getting tired of the denunciation and marginalization. So I understand your frustration with Jaggi Singh. But I think we need to find ways to challenge them that will not reinforce the stereotypes about us: that we are wreckers and splitters; that we are immature and one-track; and so on. I do not have a beautiful solution to this quandry, but let's be careful we are taking the 9/11 truth movement in the right direction.

I hear you...

...believe me this was a big shock to me personally as I have always thought of Jaggi as someone solely interested in the truth and getting justice for it. I was arrested with Jaggi once at a protest of the WTO in Montreal in 2003 we shared a jail cell for hours and talked politics I had nothing but respect for the man. The reason I made this short movie was to get to the bottom of what happened that day. I wish Jaggi would have responded to our email requests for an interview as I would really like to know his story.

As for a beautiful solution, all I can offer is that we keep on truthing whoever we can. In my view more and more people are waking up to the truth about 9/11 and the truth about a whole bunch of other frauds in our society as well (e.g the Federal Reserve.) As more and more people wake up to the truth, the anti-war movement is just going to become more and more irrelevant unless they acknowledge the reality of the situation and fight with us to expose the lie of 9/11 that the war on terror is based on.

Thanks...

Look out for that soon.

Would I love

to see Bush behind bars along with that scum bag Cheney. Come to think of I would like to see most of Washington behind bars. Well I can dream can't? ..............By the way they can throw in that used car salesman Obama too!
