People Aren't Happy Tony Blair May Not Face War Crime Charges For Iraq
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair likely won't face war crime charges for his role in the Iraq War, but Parliament may still punish him.By Grant Suneson | July 3, 2016
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair will likely avoid a trial for war crimes related to the Iraq War, but his legal issues stemming from his time in office are far from over.
The International Criminal Court said it will read through the Chilcot report when it's released this week. The document will shed light on torture and abuse allegations against British soldiers during the Iraq War. But the court already declined to consider any charges against Blair.
Individual troops on the other hand could face charges, depending on what the report has to say — a fact many see as a double standard.
