We think Wiltshire Police have a moral duty to investigate this, especially as there is evidence that cluster bombs were transported across Wiltshire from the Berkshire Arms Dump, RAF Welford to RAF Fairford. They were then dropped on urban targets in Iraq in contravention of international law. At some stages Wiltshire police were guarding troops and aircraft engaged in illegal activities – next time someone wants to rob a bank in Swindon perhaps they should ask for a police escort to help their getaway!
There are recent precedents for police forces in Western democracies intervening to investigate the illegal actions of politicians. Only a few years ago, the famous Spanish Judge Garzon investigated the illegal actions of his own government’s (GAL) death squads which operated in Spain's Basque region in the early 1980s. That ended with the former Socialist Interior Minister, Jose Barrionuevo, in prison.
We confidently look forward to the day when Tony Blair stands in the dock indicted for war crimes.
