Malaysia holds war crime exhibition
The Kuala Lumpur exhibition, which contains gory images of decapitated bodies, aims to inform the public that war is a crime against humanity.
The event was opened during a ceremony attended by former Malaysian Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir Mohammad and president of the Perdana Global Peace Foundation.
Organizers of the war crime exhibition said they hoped the public could be educated about the consequences of the war in Iraq, Afghanistan and Vietnam through the exhibition.
The exhibition also featured the infamous Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq along with life-sized mannequins to show the human rights violations inflicted upon the prisoners by the US army.
The foundation has also launched a war crime tribunal that comes after a two-year in-depth investigation which included testimonials of Iraqi war victims.
The Kuala Lumpur war crimes tribunal would hear war crime charges against former US president George Bush and Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair for their invasion of Iraq.
The tribunal will be heard on Saturday and if found guilty their names would enter the war crimes register and made public.
