Complaint Against Genocide and Other Crimes Against Humanity Committed in Connection With The Pharmaceutical 'Business With Disease' And The Recent War Against Iraq

Criminal Charges

The charges in this complaint relate to crimes in two main fields:

  • Crimes perpetrated by the pharmaceutical “business with disease” including the crime of genocide and other crimes against humanity.
  • Crimes related to the 2003 war against Iraq and the international escalation towards a world war including crimes of war and aggression as well as other crimes against humanity.

These two fields of crime are directly connected because they are committed in the name and interest of the same corporate investment groups and their political stakeholders. The accused are charged with the most serious crimes committed against all mankind and are therefore subject to the principle of international prosecution.

Summary Of The Substantiation Of The Charges In Relation To The Crimes Connected To The War Of Aggression Against Iraq And The Current International Crisis (Charges 2.1.1 - 2.3.24)

  1. The accused deliberately started a war of aggression against Iraq without any mandate by international law.
  2. The accused deliberately escalate an international crisis situation including psychological warfare and actual military warfare. The goal of this escalation strategy is to create a global emergency state that allows the abandonment of civil rights on global scale – including establishment of far reaching protectionist laws. The war of aggression against Iraq on the false pretence of a global fight against “terrorism” and the crusade proliferation of weapons of mass destruction is part of this strategy.
  3. The accused deliberately committed the crimes of genocide, murder, mutilation and other serious bodily and mental harm during their war of aggression against the people of Iraq.
  4. The accused deliberately committed the crime of destroying and seizing public and private property during and after the war of aggression. Iraq has the second largest oil resources in the world and these resources are being plundered on behalf of the accused for private gain.
