Tony Blair

Former UK prime minister Tony Blair under investigation for war crimes

The British police have started a criminal investigation against former UK prime minister Tony Blair into allegations of Blair's guilt of genocide and war crimes for invading and occupying Iraq, which has lead to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis.Scotland Yard is respoding to complaints of peace activists (Chris Cloverdale, former MI-5 operative Annie Machon and the activist group Make War History). At last they seem to be taken seriously. One of the complaints the police are looking into is the fact that Blair insisted that Saddam Hussein posed a threat to the Middle East and the West and that so-called 'rogue states' that sponsored terror had to be confronted.

Hopefully, maybe, fingers crossed, Blair's passed will come to haunt him. In a courtroom.

John McDonnell MP and members of the Campaign to Make War History will brief MPs and the media on allegations of war crimes committed against the people of Iraq by Britain's former Prime Minister and former Attorney General.

Officers from Scotland Yard have commenced a criminal investigation into the deaths of Iraqi citizens killed during the armed invasion and occupation of Iraq. The Metropolitan Police are acting in response to crimes reported by peace activists from We Are Change UK and The Campaign to Make War History. In an unprecedented step, the case was handed to the War Crimes division of the Counter Terrorism branch who are now investigating allegations of 14 criminal offences committed by Tony Blair, Lord Goldsmith and others. The offences are under the International Criminal Court Act 2001, which came into effect under English common law, just two days before 9/11.
