Even though this is dated June
of 2011, we can see that the groundwork was put in place even then to
indict the criminals connected with NATO. Again, I see this as a sign
from the Universe that these folks will be brought to trial. People are
thinking, and they are preparing.
This post was suggested by A, who
has been with me here for a very long time. Let me say, once again, that
I am grateful to all of you who share suggestions. The magnitude of the
task of bringing the news is now becoming even greater, and I value
your input. You’re some of very best out there! I feel blessed to have
The law case of the century: Indictment against NATO military and political leaders (UPDATED)
NATO: Indictment for breach of international law in the Great SocialistPeople’sLibyan ArabJamahiriya.
The military and political leaders of NATO are hereby accused of the
following crimes committed in the Libyan campaign of 2011, in which the
systematic breaches of international law are underlined.
Understanding that international law exists and that it is
systematically broken by certain powers with impunity, understanding
that such a situation is unacceptable and that the same set of laws
should apply to all, equally, with the same sets of weights and measures
employed in upholding it, I hereby accuse NATO and the below-mentioned
individuals, party to its acts in the Great SocialistPeople’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya from February to September (ongoing) 2011, of breach of international law;
1. Accusation: NATO war crimes, crimes against humanity, breach of UN
Charter, Breach of UNSC Resolutions, breach of Geneva Conventions,
occasioning murder, attempted murder, actions occasioning grievous and
actual bodily harm, destruction of private and public property.
Anders Fogh Rasmussen (Denmark) NATO Secretary-General; Charles
Bouchard (Canada), Commander of Operations; Nicolas Sarkozy, Édouard
Guillaud (France); Rinaldo Veri, Commander Allied Maritime Command
(Italy); David Cameron, Sir Stuart Peach (UK); Barack Obama, Carter Ham,
Sam Locklear (USA); Harald Sunde (Norway), Abdullah II (Jordan); Hamad
bin Khalifa al Thani (Qatar), Khalifa bin Zayed al Nahyan (UAE); Sverker
Goranson (Sweden) and the Defence Ministers Pieter de Crem (Belgium),
Anuy Angelov (Bulgaria), Gitte Lillelund Bech (Denmark); Panos Beglitis
(Greece); Hans Hillen (Netherlands); Gabriel Oprea (Romania);Carme
Chacón Piqueras (Spain); Ismet Yilmaz (Turkey), Liam Fox (UK), Ignazio
La Russa (Italy), Gérard Longuet (France).
William Hague (UK), Hillary Clinton (USA) Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini
3. Law and breaches:
3.1 Proper procedure was not followed: Under the UN Charter, any
military action which comes outside a UNSC Resolution in any theatre of
conflict must necessarily come from a separate Resolution in the UNSC
and any military action must come after the Military Council is
convened. This was not the case under UNSC Resolutions 1970 and 1973
(2011) covering the Libyan conflict.
Why did NATO not convene the Military Staff Committee of the UNSC?
Under the UN Charter, Chapter VII, Article 46: “Plans for the
application of armed force shall be made by the Security Council with
the assistance of the Military Staff Committee”. Such committee was
This is a violation of the UN Charter rendering Resolutions 1970 and
1973 (2011) void; There is also evidence that such Resolutions were
passed on the evidence from a false flag event. The supposed crimes
committed by the Libyan authorities have been hotly contested and must
3.2 Intervention in domestic affairs of a sovereign state: UNSC
Resolution 2131 (XX) of 21 December 1965, containing the Declaration on
the Inadmissibility of Intervention in the Domestic Affairs of States
was backed up by Resolutions 31/91 of 14 December 1976, 32/153 of 19
December 1977, 33/74 of 15 December 1978, 34/101 of 14 December 1979 and
35/159 of 12 December 1980 on non-interference in the internal affairs
3.3 Bombardment of undefended buildings and structures: Article 3 of
the Statute of The Hague International Penal Court which states clearly
that one criterion for indictment for war crimes is:
“Attack or bombardment, by whatever means, against undefended cities, towns, villages, buildings or houses”.
Another clause of the same Article 3 could also be invoked:
“Massive destruction of cities, towns or villages or destruction not justified by military necessity”.
The attack on Libya’s water supply network on Friday July 22 and the
attack on the factory making pipes for the supply system on Saturday
July 23 in al-Brega were not covered under “military necessity” in which
case, under Article 3, this was an act of wanton destruction of
civilian structures with military hardware. This renders NATO liable for
trial by its own court, the ICC at The Hague;
3.4 Support for outlawed organizations and individuals. Despite this admission:
There is evidence that armed groups fighting inside Libya include the
Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) which according to the British
Government: “The LIFG seeks to replace the current Libyan regime with a
hard-line Islamic state. The group is also part of the wider global
Islamist extremist movement, as inspired by Al Qa’ida. The group has
mounted several operations inside Libya, including a 1996 attempt to
assassinate Mu’ammar Qadhafi” and for which reason is on the Home Office
list of proscribed terrorist groups, despite this, the UK aided and
abetted the said group;
3.5 Failure to apply international law: Under the UN Charter, Chapter
VI, Article 33, member states must “seek a solution by negotiation,
enquiry, mediation, conciliation, arbitration, judicial settlement,
resort to regional agencies or arrangements, or other peaceful means of
their own choice”.
3.6 The Jamahiriya Government of Libya had the right to defend itself
without being attacked: Chapter VII, Article 51 refers to the right of
States to defend themselves against armed insurgency:
“Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of
individual or collective self-defence if an armed attack occurs against a
Member of the United Nations, until the Security Council has taken
measures necessary to maintain international peace and security.
Measures taken by Members in the exercise of this right of self-defence
shall be immediately reported to the Security Council and shall not in
any way affect the authority and responsibility of the Security Council
under the present Charter to take at any time such action as it deems
necessary in order to maintain or restore international peace and
3.7 Mercenaries: UNSC Resolution 1973 (2011), in its Chapter on Protection of Civilians, in paragraph 4. states:
“4. Authorizes Member States that have notified the
Secretary-General, acting nationally or through regional organizations
or arrangements, and acting in cooperation with the Secretary-General,
to take all necessary measures, notwithstanding paragraph 9 of
resolution 1970 (2011), to protect civilians and civilian populated
areas under threat of attack in the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, including
Benghazi, while excluding a foreign occupation force of any form on any part of Libyan territory,
and requests the Member States concerned to inform the
Secretary-General immediately of the measures they take pursuant to the
authorization conferred by this paragraph which shall be immediately
reported to the Security Council;
There have been numerous reports of mercenaries being used by NATO
and the rebels it supported; French Foreign Legion, Egyptians, Qataris,
UAE forces, among others;
3.8 Boots on the ground: UNSC Resolution 1970 (2011) Paragraph 16:
“16. Deplores the continuing flows of mercenaries into the Libyan
Arab Jamahiriya and calls upon all Member States to comply strictly with
their obligations under paragraph 9 of resolution 1970 (2011) to prevent the provision of armed mercenary personnel to the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya;”.
If David Cameron has admitted that UK special services have assisted
the terrorists on the ground, this is against the UN mandate which
allowed NATO to intervene in Libya, and is a war crime.
A request has been sent (August 30) to the British FCO and Ministry
of Defence to confirm or deny that troops have been used in the theatre
of operations; no reply has been forthcoming;
3.9 Non-enforcement of UN Resolution, and violation of international
law, by transporting rebel forces to enter the theatre of operations:
UNSC Resolution 1970 (2011):
In the Chapter on Enforcement of the arms embargo, Paragraph 13 of the same states:
“13. Decides that paragraph 11 of resolution 1970 (2011) shall be
replaced by the following paragraph : “Calls upon all Member States, in
particular States of the region, acting nationally or through regional
organisations or arrangements, in order to ensure strict implementation
of the arms embargo established by paragraphs 9 and 10 of resolution
1970 (2011), to inspect in their territory, including seaports and
airports, and on the high seas, vessels and aircraft bound to or from
the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, if the State concerned has information that
provides reasonable grounds to believe that the cargo contains items the
supply, sale, transfer or export of which is prohibited by paragraphs 9
or 10 of Resolution 1970 (2011) as modified by this resolution,
including the provision of armed mercenary personnel, calls upon all
flag States of such vessels and aircraft to cooperate with such
inspections and authorises Member States to use all measures
commensurate to the specific circumstances to carry out such
In violation of this: supply of French Milan anti-tank missiles,
Swedish Carl Gustav 84mm rifles, 68mm rockets and mortars and Maadi
assault rifles from Egypt; this, in addition to the British, French and
Italian military advisors helping the terrorists.
3.10 Violation of Geneva Conventions: NATO and the Transitional
National Council have given the people of Sirte ten days to surrender or
face a full military onslaught. This is not a cease-fire. While they
await their fate, they will still be subject to artillery fire and NATO
bombing, and food, water and electricity have already been cut off.
These siege tactics have been outlawed by the Geneva Conventions. In
particular, Article 14 of the second Protocol to the Geneva Conventions
states, “Starvation of civilians as a method of combat is prohibited. It
is therefore prohibited to attack, destroy, remove or render useless
for that purpose objects indispensable to the survival of the civilian
population such as food-stuffs, agricultural areas for the production of
food-stuffs, crops, livestock, drinking water installations, and
supplies and irrigation works.”
The 4th Geneva Convention prohibits all forms of attacks on civilians
and the collective punishment of civilian populations, so virtually
everything that the combined TNC-NATO forces are doing to the people of
Sirte is strictly illegal and in fact criminal.
