Reading magistrates asked for Bush arrest warrant

‘A peace campaigner from Newtown will tomorrow ask Reading magistrates for a warrant to arrest George W Bush.

Peter Burt, of Biko Court, is taking his case to court to try to get the American president arrested for war crimes.

Mr Burt, of Reading Peace Group, plans to outline the offences that ‘Dubya’, left, has committed and the international laws that he has broken, including the invasion of Iraq, the bombing of Afghanistan and the abduction, illegal detention and torture of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.

He said: “The historians of the future will mention the name Bush in the same breath as the names of Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot and other great criminals who have committed the most appalling crimes that humanity has known.

“I will be asking Reading magistrates to stand up for international law by issuing an arrest warrant so that George Bush can be held to account for his crimes in the International Criminal Court.”‘
