Barack Obama accused of crimes against humanity for Osama bin Laden killing
Al Qaeda declared war on us, Bin laden was their leader, he’s dead, I do not see a problem nor a crime here. Crimes against humanity is a term that should be reserved for real crimes against humanity, like those that Bin Laden committed.
Daniel Fiol lodged a written complaint at the International Criminal Court accusing the US president of breaching the Geneva Convention.
Navy Seals acting on Mr Obama’s orders shot the al-Qaeda leader dead on May 2 after storming his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
In his written complaint, the Majorca-based lawyer said bin Laden should have been “pursued, arrested, tried and convicted” on behalf of “the victims of some terrible and appalling atrocities”. The killing of bin Laden was even worse as it took place in foreign territory, Pakistan, without the permission of that government, he said.
“I am not being paid by al-Qaeda,” Mr Fiol joked.
