In London, Blair said that Saddam’s future ‘should be left to the Iraqis – provided they have a proper and fair and independent judicial system’. Blair said that people are only tried internationally if there was not the capacity for a trial within the country in which the crimes were committed. ‘There is something like the remains of 400,000 human beings that have been found in mass graves already,’ Blair told the British Forces Broadcasting Service. ‘There is a strong feeling in Iraq that he should be tried in Iraq.’ (MEED 16:12:03)
