Tony Blair - Malaysia - Indictment for War Crimes?

Michel Chossudovsky is Professor of Economics, Director of the Center for Research on Globalization (CRG), Member of the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission and Signatory of the 2005 Kuala Lumpur Initiative to Criminalize War.

While on a speaking engagement in Malaysia organized by "Success Resources Company", former British Prime Minister Tony Blair was the object of an articulate protest movement demanding his indictment for war crimes.

This was no ordinary protest. Tony Blair has been accused of war crimes in a legal initiative led by the country's former Prime Minister, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.

A War Crimes Tribunal as well as a War Crimes Commission were set up integrated by renowned jurists. Documentary evidence of war crimes committed by Blair and Bush has been carefully compiled and collected since 2006. The prosecution is led by several of Malaysia's most prominent lawyers.

What, you've not heard of this stunning news in the UK mainstream media?
Maybe it's just political disinfo.
Maybe Iraq never happened.

The Daily Mail (bless them) did cover Blair's £350,000 for four hours work -- Blair reminded the 3,000 would-be millionaires in a vast convention centre near Kuala Lumpur, "Power is shifting east! You guys are at the cutting edge of things here in Malaysia!" -- without plunging into the Meat & Potatoes of his attempted arrest for War Crimes as outlined above. Omission or laziness?
