Lawyers representing two Pakistani men handed to the US for rendition by the British military called on Friday for senior government figures to face war crimes charges: here.

These “senior government figures” include Geoff Hoon, who was Tony Blair‘s Secretary of War “Defence”. Hoon later had to leave politics because of his role in a corruption scandal (and then he got a fat cat job at war profiteers AgustaWestland).
