Danish Suit Against Prime Minister Over War Advances


From Bo Elkjær, Journalist

The father of the danish soldier that was killed recently by a roadside bomb has joined the lawsuit against the danish prime minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen. The implications are immense and his joining the lawsuit will give unprecedented merit to the case.

After the lawsuit legal experts expressed doubts that the lawsuit would be allowed to continue, given that the 24 persons behind the suit did not have direct legal interests in the case. It seems that this hurdle will be cleared when mr. Johan Kirkmand joins the committee behind the lawsuit.

- I have talked with a member of the committee - I called them myself - and I have declared that If I can help them in any way, then I'm available, says mr. Johan Kirkmand.

Mr. Johan Kirkmands son Bjarke Olsen Kirkmand was killed instantly by a powerful roadside bomb near Basra a couple of weeks ago. He was 21 years old. Three other danish soldiers were injured at the attack. Two of the soldiers suffered severe injuries, one lost an arm.

Last week a group of danish citizens filed suit against the danish prime minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, stating that the declaration of war against Iraq was unconstitutional according to danish law.

Attached is a pdf copy of an article in Ekstra Bladet covering mr. Kirkmands statement (its in Danish).

Did Denmark formally declare War against Iraq? The U.S. did not as required by the U.S. Constitution.

If so, is the text available?
