International activists and lawyers involved in the defense of Saddam Hussein said on Sunday they would organize a mock trial of U.S. President George W. Bush and the British and Israeli prime ministers for alleged war crimes committed in Iraq and the Palestinian territories. The prosecution will be headed by former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, who sits on Saddam's defense team, according to one of the organizers. Charges against Bush, British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon include "crimes committed against civilians in Palestine and Iraq," Khasawneh said, declining to elaborate. He said details would be unveiled at the event. The trial is not legally binding, but it will be an "exhibition of popular opposition to the policies of those three leaders in the region and the extent of harm and damage they inflicted on civilians and countries by wars they waged and the oppression practiced in jails run by their (security) forces," Khasawneh said in an interview.
