Blair “Butcher of Baghdad” hides like a coward

Tony "Butcher of Baghdad" Blair the coward

War Criminal Blair Hides For

One and Half Hours to Avoid Service

Of War Crimes Indictment

War criminal Tony Blair, the keynote speaker at the National Achievers Conference organized by Success Resources, a sycophant Singapore outfit at the Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur, hid in fear at the threat that members of the Malaysian anti-war NGOs would throw slippers at him and that members of the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission would serve an indictment for war crimes.

Extensive security measures were put in place before his arrival for the three day event. For the first time, delegates to the conference had no itinerary of the speakers invited to speak at the convention. Organizers and delegates were not even told when speakers were scheduled to speak. There was a total black out!

Delegates have to wear a special wrist band for the entire duration of the convention for identification purposes and anyone without the security wrist band was not allowed to enter the vicinity of the convention hall.

Acting Chairman of the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission Zainur Zakaria, Chief Prosecutor of the War Crimes Commission Matthias Chang, two members of the Perdana Global Peace Organisation (PGPO) Ram Karthigesu and Christopher Chang, a representative of the Malaysian Kong Siew Association (one of the largest Chinese clan association in the country) Elvis Ng and two representatives of the Iraq Community in Malaysia Associate Prof. Dr Mahmoud Khalid Mahmoud Almsafir and Prof. Dr Khalid A.S. Alkhateeb evaded the security by registering themselves as participants.

At 8.30 am, members of more than 50 NGOs and their affiliates gathered at the entrance of the convention centre to protest against the visit of war criminal Blair. Undercover teams were dispatched to the three separate entrances to confront and attempt to serve the war crime indictment on Blair. But he could not be seen entering the convention centre.

He had entered surreptitiously and was hiding in a VIP room just above the convention hall where the function was held. His original schedule was 10.00am this morning. But organisers issued statements that no schedule is available.

British and Malaysian security officers were seen patrolling the corridors and had identified the seven War Crimes Commission delegates who were waiting for Blair. They kept a close watch on the delegates. They tried to mislead the Commission members by spreading rumours that Blair would not be speaking today. Hints were given that Blair would be speaking on Sunday in the hope that the seven delegates would abandon their vigil.

At 11.25am, the seven delegates discovered that Blair was hiding in the VIP room just above the convention hall. They took their positions, with three members tasked with taking photographs.

At 11.30am Blair and his security team descended from the VIP room and walked towards the VIP entrance of the convention hall.

Chang and Zainur rushed forward to serve the indictment, while the Iraqi representatives loudly denounced Blair – “mass murderer, war criminal, shame on you”, repeatedly. Blair was obviously unsettled and put on an embarrassed smile.

Chang and Zainur were prevented from handing the indictment to Blair by over 30 British and Malaysian security personnel. Both of them denounced Blair within earshot, “War criminal, shame on you! Mass Murderer”!

Zainur also shouted at the Malaysian security personnel, “Why are you protecting a war criminal”? The security officers could only respond with a silly expression.

Having arrogantly told the Chilcot Inquiry in London that he had no regrets for invading Iraq notwithstanding there were no WMDs, Blair displayed cowardice in face of only seven delegates from the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission.

The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission stated that this is only the beginning of a global campaign to ostracise war criminals like Blair and George Bush and urge people the world over to adopt similar campaign against Bush and Blair.

While the seven delegates were attempting to serve the indictment to Blair inside the convention centre, members of NGOs carried banners and placards condemning Blair and the organizers as well as sponsors for the events.

Banners which were in Bahasa Malaysia, English and Chinese, representing the different races involved in the protest, displayed bold words which called Blair a war criminal and mass murdered who was responsible for the death of one million Iraqis.

There were also banners telling Blair that he was not welcome on Malaysian soil. One also condemned the Malaysian sponsors, saying they were shameless for bringing in a war criminal to talk on achievement when Blair’s only achievement was to cause the death of a million Iraqis, including women and children.

A Malaysian sponsor, the NTV7, a television station under the Media Prima Group stable, which was listed by the organisers as the event’s official media, had pulled out two days ago and distanced itself from the event.

A sizeable number of Iraqis living in Malaysia made their presence felt with many bringing along their spouses and children to join the protest.

They also took the opportunity to join the Malaysian NGOs to step and trample on Blair’s posters and they threw slippers at a banner displaying Blair’s mug shot.

The demonstration was initiated by the Perdana Global Peace Organisation (PGPO) which is under the leadership of former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

It is strongly backed by Perkasa and the Malaysian Kong Siew Association. Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali and the Kong Siew Association president Michael Ho were both present to support the protest.

Ibrahim and Michael Ho were also involved in attempting to serve the indictment to Blair but they were not allowed to enter the convention centre and they managed to pass the indictment to a representative.
