The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal is an initiative of Malaysia's retired
Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, who staunchly opposed the U.S.-led
invasion of Iraq in 2003.

The tribunal will convene a four-day public hearing starting Saturday to
determine whether Bush and Blair committed crimes against peace and
violated international law in the Iraq invasion, said Malaysian lawyer
Yaacob Hussain Marican.

"For these people who have been immune from prosecution, we want to put
them on trial in this forum to prove that they committed war crimes,"
Yaacob told The Associated Press.

Activists sent information about the charges to Bush and Blair recently but
received no response, Yaacob said.

Francis Boyle, an American international law professor based in Illinois,
will be among the prosecutors at the hearing, which follows two years of
investigations by a Malaysian peace foundation founded by Mahathir that
looked into complaints by people affected by the Iraqi war.

The effort is modelled after a 1967 Vietnam War crimes panel convened in
Sweden and Denmark by philosophers Bertrand Russell and Jean-Paul Sartre,
Yaacob said. The Vietnam tribunal said the U.S. committed acts of
aggression against Vietnam and bombarded civilian targets, but it was
mostly ignored in United States.

The Kuala Lumpur tribunal will have a seven-member panel of judges
including two retired judges from Malaysia's highest court, peace activist
Alfred Lambremont Webre of the United States and Mumbai-based lawyer
Niloufer Bhagwat of India.

If the tribunal finds Bush and Blair guilty, it will enter their names into
a symbolic "Register of War Criminals."

The tribunal is also scheduled to hold a separate hearing next year on
charges of torture linked to the Iraq war against former U.S. officials
including ex-Vice President Dick Cheney, former Secretary of State Donald
Rumsfeld and ex-Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, Yaacob said.
