Recently, our Facebook page featured a post about the Malaysian tribunal that convicted Bush and Blair of war crimes (including aggression) in 2012. We’re excited to announce that Inder Comar, the lead counsel in Saleh v. Bush, will travel to the Malaysian capital next week to speak about the case at the Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalize War‘s International Forum on Peace and Justice.
Mr. Comar joins prominent diplomats, professors, and legal advisors at the April 18 conference in Kuala Lumpur, including the Fourth Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamed and former UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq Hans von Sponeck.
At the conference, Mr. Comar will discuss recent developments in the case, which is currently awaiting appellate briefing in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and its implications for international justice. Mr. Comar and the Witness Iraq team are grateful for this opportunity to bring international attention to this groundbreaking case.
