Anti-war campaigner Chris Coverdale sets out what the tribunal will involve

 

OCCUPY Justice will broadcast live the first of three much-anticipated tribunals tomorrow (Thursday) with the first laying out the case for the prosecution of Tony Blair and associates for crimes against the Iraqi people, namely genocide.

 

The citizens' inquiry, at the former Old Street Magistrates, in Hackney, will question the legality of the war in Iraq that left hundreds of thousands dead and seek to establish whether there is enough evidence to prosecute those responsible.

Whoops! here's the rest

The citizens' inquiry, at the former Old Street Magistrates, in Hackney, will question the legality of the war in Iraq that left hundreds of thousands dead and seek to establish whether there is enough evidence to prosecute those responsible.
In a document outlining proceedings, the police and crown prosecution are accused of failing to take action over the alleged crimes that it says has seen only one prosecution since 2001.
Chris Coverdale, a veteran anti-war campaigner who will present evidence to a four-man panel, said: “Our intention is to conduct a people's tribunal into the illegality of the Iraq war and the crimes committed by our leaders against the people of Iraq. We will hear both the prosecution and defence of the case and we will end up with a decision by the people as to whether or not Tony Blair and other members of the British government should be pit on trial.”
The panel and livestream viewers will then be asked to decide if criminal proceedings should commence.
Mr Coverdale said: “We're doing this to highlight the deep-seated corruption at the heart of law enforcement authorities in London, Washington and the Hague. It is corruption that is protecting the world's leading war criminals from prosecution. We must hold them to account for their crimes.”
The tribunal is expected to run over two sessions, starting at 10.30am until 1pm and 2pm and 4.30pm.
Friday and Saturday will hear the case against RBS for false accounting and the government's plans to criminalise squatting.
