Indictment Of Saddam Hussein

EDM number 396 in 1996-97, proposed by Ann Clwyd on 14/01/1997.

That this House welcomes the launch in the House on 15th January, of IDICT an international campaign to bring Saddam Hussein and others in the current regime in Iraq before an int ernational tribunal to face charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity, crimes against peace and the crime of genocide; notes that since 1979 the Baathist regime in Iraq has committed repeated acts of brutality against the people of Iraq and the citizens of other countries; believes that charges against Saddam Hussein and his associates include the invasion of Iran and Kuwait, the occupation and destruction of Kuwait, the use of chemical weapons against the Kurds and against Iran, the genocidal campaign against the Kurds, the continued and systematic repression of Iraqi civilians, the systematic destruction of the land inhabited by the Marsh Arabs, politically motivated assasinations inside and outside Iraq, the abduction and continued detention of Kuwaiti and Iraqi citizens and the continued violation of Security Council resolutions; maintains that these well-documented acts violate international law as well as the basic norms of behaviour recognised by civilised laws; calls on the United Nations Security Council to set up an international tribunal to try the members of the Baathist regime in Iraq on the above-mentioned charges; and emphasises the most important reason for prosecuting those responsible is the need for justice, especially for the victims and their surviving relatives.

This motion has been signed by a total of 70 MPs.
