ENFORCEMENT OF VERDICT FINDING BUSH, CHENEY, RUMSFELD & LAWYERS GUILTY OF WAR CRIMES
QUESTION: "What validity does this verdict have on the international community...how will the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal exercise a sentence, or is there a sentence?"
ANSWER: "You have asked an important question with an evolving answer. The Tribunal recommended that the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission forward the Tribunal's verdict and judgment, and trial record and evidence to (1) the International Criminal Court (ICC) and to (2) the United Nations and Security Council for their further action. The Tribunal also awarded reparations to the 5 Complainant War Crimes who were tortured by U.S. armed forces, and suggested that there may be national courts who will enforce this order for reparations, as has happened in other cases. Now, this case, which was sustained since 2007 by a worldwide grassroots citizen's tribunal of conscience movement, proceeds to the ENFORCEMENT PHASE. The same grassroots movement can pivot and begin to actively approach the International Criminal Court, the United Nations, and national courts (such as the courts which extradited, arrested, tried, convicted and imprisoned the Chilean war criminal (convicted of torture) Agusto Pinochet. Thus this Enforcement Phase is now part of the flow of the citizen's tribunal of conscience movement and its legal and moral interactions with the ICC, the UN, and the national courts (for example, in Europe)."
