Tony Blair should be taken to ICC for Iraq invasion: Salmond


Scottish National Party (SNP)’s Alex Salmond says former British Prime Minister Tony Blair should be taken to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for involving the country in the 2003 invasion of Iraq if an inquiry reveals that Blair made a secret commitment to Washington to support the war.

The SNP foreign affairs spokesman has begun rallying support for the impeachment of Blair, pending the publication of the Chilcot inquiry report into the UK’s involvement in the 2003 Iraq invasion on July 6.

A cross-party group of MPs launched a campaign in 2004 to have Blair impeached. Salmon is now trying to reassemble the group to make plans ahead of the publication of the long-awaited inquiry.

While a number of lawmakers still want to use the impeachment procedure to hold Blair to account for his role in the invasion of the Arab country and its following occupation, Salmond said any prosecution of Blair should be conducted by the ICC.
