UPDATE FROM THE KUALA LUMPUR WAR CRIMES TRIBUNAL

All,

It gives me great pleasure to announce that the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal, of which Alfred Lambremont Webre, J.D., M.Ed. is a member, has delivered major verdicts and judgments against George W. Bush, Richard B. Cheney, and Donald H. Rumsfeld and their legal advisors for war crimes committed in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Guantanamo.  Alfred and Constance Fogal, LLB, former leader of the Canadian Action Party, will be serving as judges during The Vancouver Hearings.  Given the virtually insurmountable legal obstacles that tend to defeat bringing war criminals to the bar of justice, we owe a tremendous debt to the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal and to Alfred for his participation.  This may to be as close as we have come to 9/11 justice.

Congratulations to Alfred and to the Tribunal!  For more about the proceeding and its findings, http://criminalisewar.org/?p=1040

UPDATES-COMPLETE NEWS COVERAGE - KUALA LUMPUR WAR CRIMES TRIBUNAL: BUSH, CHENEY, RUMSFELD & 4 LAWYERS CONVICTION AS WAR CRIMINALS - MAY 20, 2012.


Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal delivers verdict and judgment against GW Bush, RB Cheney, DH Rumsfeld and their lawyers for war crimes in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo, Cuba. May 11, 2012

ENFORCEMENT OF VERDICT FINDING BUSH, CHENEY, RUMSFELD & LAWYERS GUILTY OF WAR CRIMES
QUESTION: "What validity does this verdict have on the international community...how will the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal exercise a sentence, or is there a sentence?"


ANSWER: "You have asked an important question with an evolving answer. The Tribunal recommended that the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission forward the Tribunal's verdict and judgment, and trial record and evidence to (1) the International Criminal Court (ICC) and to (2) the United Nations and Security Council for their further action. The Tribunal also awarded reparations to the 5 Complainant War Crimes who were tortured by U.S. armed forces, and suggested that there may be national courts who will enforce this order for reparations, as has happened in other cases.  Now, this case, which was sustained since 2007 by a worldwide grassroots citizen's tribunal of conscience movement, proceeds to the ENFORCEMENT PHASE. The same grassroots movement can pivot and begin to actively approach the International Criminal Court, the United Nations, and national courts (such as the courts which extradited, arrested, tried, convicted and imprisoned the Chilean war criminal (convicted of torture) Agusto Pinochet.  Thus this Enforcement Phase is now part of the flow of the citizen's tribunal of conscience movement and its legal and moral interactions with the ICC, the UN, and the national courts (for example, in Europe)."

excellent development, and only underscores how remiss the american legal system has been in upholding the rule of law.
