Tony Blair will not be investigated for War Crimes – but British soldiers could be

Update 06/072016:

‘Tony Blair unrepentant as Chilcot gives crushing Iraq war verdict’ – The Guardian

A defiant Tony Blair defended his decision to go to war in Iraq in 2003 following the publication of a devastating report by Sir John Chilcot, which mauled the ex-prime minister’s reputation and said that at the time of the 2003 invasion Saddam Hussein “posed no imminent threat”.

Asked whether invading Iraq was a mistake Blair was strikingly unrepentant.

I believe we made the right decision and the world is better and safer.

He argued that he had acted in good faith, based on intelligence at the time which said that Iraq’s president had weapons of mass destruction.

This “turned out to be wrong”.

Tony Blair the man who lied to the British people in order to get approval for his War in the Middle East will not be investigated for War Crimes following the Chilcot enquiry, however Soldiers sent to War based on Blair’s lies could be.

The Telegraph reports:

Prosecutors at the International Criminal Court will examine the Chilcot report for evidence of abuse and torture by British soldiers but have already ruled out putting Tony Blair on trial for war crimes, The Telegraph can disclose.

The decision has outraged families of troops killed in Iraq who blame Mr Blair for engineering the war.

Sir John Chilcot’s report will finally be published on Wednesday and is expected to strongly criticise Mr Blair’s role in the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

But in an official statement to the Telegraph, the International Criminal Court (ICC) said its prosecutors would comb through the 2.3 million word report for evidence of war crimes committed by British troops but that decision to go to war remained outside its remit.

It means individual soldiers could be prosecuted for war crimes but not Mr Blair.

This not acceptable and needs to be challenged by all of us, not only for allowing Tony Blair to walk away from his crimes but for the soldiers he sent to war based on lies having to face potential court action against them.
