Iraq Inquiry To Hear 'Illegal War' Evidence

Two former Foreign Office lawyers are expected to tell the Chilcot inquiry the Government was "clearly advised" that the Iraq war was illegal, it has been reported.

Sir Michael Wood, who worked as the department's chief legal adviser, will reveal he believed the war was unlawful without a second United Nations resolution, according to The Observer.

His evidence will come just days before former prime minister Tony Blair appears at the inquiry.

The war was completely illegal being sold on a pack of lies issued from US & UK political and military chiefs. What needs to happen next is a criminal prosecution of all involved in staging this crime.
