From the BBC:
Foreign Secretary William Hague says a bid to prosecute British politicians and senior military figures for alleged war crimes in Iraq should be rejected.
He claims that if there are any accusations of wrongdoing by UK forces , the UK government will deal with it. Who does he think we are to dismiss serious accusations by UK forces mistreating prisoners in Iraq? I hope the ICC have a full and proper investigation and if there are UK citizens accused of crimes , make them go and defend themselves. It’s so arrogant that we demand the highest standards from other countries yet think we are above the law ourselves.
