Tony Blair could face trial on war crime charges: Corbyn

  • Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn believes that former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair should stand trial on war crimes charges if evidence indicates he violated international law during the 2003 Iraq invasion.

    Corbyn, a frontrunner for the party’s leadership, urged Blair to own up to the understanding reached with the then US president George W. Bush before the war. A strong opponent of the Iraq war, the Labour MP believes it was “illegal”.
