The Indictment of Anthony Charles Lynton Blair for the Crime of Aggression Against Iraq: A Hearing

Called to Account $19.95 ex GST
$21.95 inc GST

In 2007 two leading barristers - Philippe Sands QC (for the prosecution) and Julian Knowles (for the defence) - tested the evidence of the grounds for an indictment of the British Prime Minister for the crime of aggression against Iraq.

They examined a number of distinguished witnesses, including MPs, diplomats, international lawyers, civil servants, UN officials, policy advisors, intelligence experts and journalists. The arguments and testimony gathered, edited into a play by Richard Norton-Taylor, examine the criminal implications of the British Government’s decision to use force against Iraq, and allow the audience to decide whether an indictment in this case is proven.
