Canada Must Arrest George W. Bush for War Crimes sign now

Dear Attorney General Nicholson,


George W. Bush arrives in Canada, October 20, 2009.

As you know, Canada is a signatory to international legal covenants such as the Geneva Conventions and the Rome Statute. As signatories we are legally bound to enforce these laws. Furthermore, Canada has enacted supporting legislation.

Under the Canadian Criminal Code, the Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act, and the Geneva Conventions Act, torture and other war crimes and crimes against humanity committed anywhere in the world are crimes in Canada. Canada has a legal duty to prosecute such crimes. The duty to prosecute is triggered when the suspected perpetrators enter Canada.

While President of the United States, George W. Bush waged war on Iraq without credible justification, the most serious breach of International Law which prohibits wars of aggression. His government has held prisoners of war indefinitely without due process and has authorized the use of torture against many of these detainees, also in breach of international law.

To fail to apply the laws equally would be to breach your Oath of Office and to undermine the rule of law in Canada. The Attorney General does not act on directions from his colleagues or anyone else in discharging his duties in the enforcement of the law.

George W. Bush must be arrested and prosecuted.
