Protesters claim Prime Minister is a war criminal
A group of campaigners visited Rutherglen police station to ask for Prime Minister David Cameron to be arrested for war crimes after MPs voted to back airstrikes in Syria.
Rutherglen man, James Scott received a crime reference number on Friday, December 4, after telling officers he thought the PM was a criminal of war.
Joined by, Sean Clerkin, Piers Doughty Brown and Gwen Sinclair, Scott presented himself to say the government had breached the Kellogg-Briand Pact.
The pact is a 1928 international agreement in which signatory states promised not to use war to resolve“disputes or conflicts of whatever nature”.
James Scott, who is part of the Scottish Resistance movement, said:“No one is above the law. We’ve come here to report a crime against the fact they are bombing Syria which contravenes the Kellogg-Briand Pact which is international war law. It’s not a joke, this is an actual document of international war law, signed by most of the countries in the world.
“This is the first time this has been done in Scotland. We are encouraging others to go to their local police station to report the crime.
“The pact has been ignored.
“I can guarantee most MPs that have become politicians, don’t know about international war law.”
However, a Police Scotland spokeswomen said:“No criminality was established and advice and guidance was given.”
