In the light of the catastrophic deterioration of the situation in Iraq, we (the Current Conserns’ Team) decided to compile for our readers an electronic dossier.
During the 5th session of the Human Rights Council the Special Rapporteur on the independence of judges and lawyers, Leandro Despouy gave his report. With respect to Iraq he proposed to establish an international and independent court of justice whose mandate will be the trial of those who committed all the crimes in Iraq before and after 2003.
Our dossier contains important information and analysis about the so-called Iraq Special Tribunal which was established by the US after the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
This is part from our ongoing efforts to oppose the war, occupation and all its consequences. In this dossier you will fi nd articles and statements by public independent fi gures who are determined to raise their voices in conscientious opposition to this situation.
Current Concerns is a monthly independent newspaper produced by a group of concerned intellectuals in Switzerland. It is edited by the independent volunteer cooperative Zeit-Fragen. The cooperative also publishes the weekly German-language Zeit-Fragen as well as the French-language newspaper Horizons et Débats.
Please share this information as widely as possible – Spread the word! We are looking forward to your response.
