Title: Saddam Hussein War Crime Prosecution bill

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to adopt a resolution condemning the Iraqi Government for repeated violations of human rights and abuses of power and calling upon the President to formally endorse an international war crimes tribunal for the purpose of prosecuting Saddam Hussein and other Iraqi officials involved in crimes against humanity.

Highlights:

  • Endorses a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for the establishment of an International Criminal Court for Iraq.
  • Supports the formation of an international war crimes tribunal for the purpose of prosecuting Iraqi officials involved in crimes against humanity.
  • Denounces the Iraqi government's repeated violations of human rights, including those against innocent civilians.
  • Recognizes the refusal of the government of Iraq to comply with international human rights instruments, despite being a signatory to several, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

NOTE: THIS IS A NON-BINDING CONCURRENT RESOLUTION. IT IS NOT SIGNED BY THE PRESIDENT AND THEREFORE DOES NOT HOLD THE WEIGHT OF LAW.
