Shadjareh: We hope the court will enforce the law
The British government could face charges of aiding and abetting serious violations of international law by allowing US arms flights to Israel to use UK airports.
The Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC), based in London, is seeking high court permission to bring proceedings against the Civil Aviation Authority, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Des Browne, the secretary of state for defence, to prevent them from what it says are crimes against the Geneva Conventions.
A number of US aircraft believed to be carrying military hardware to Israel refuelled in the UK during the Lebanon conflict.
So they're seeing if they can sue someone, or two, or three, eh?
Certainly sounds interesting wouldn't you say?
So see some more of the same story.
