About this show

In January and February 2007, two leading barristers and their juniors (from Matrix Chambers) - Philippe Sands QC (for the prosecution) assisted by Alison Macdonald and Julian Knowles (for the defense) assisted by Blinne Ni Gralaigh - tested the evidence as to whether there would be sufficient grounds to indict the British Prime Minister for the crime of aggression against Iraq. They examined a number of distinguished witnesses, including Members of Parliament, diplomats, international lawyers, civil servants, United Nations officials, policy advisors, Intelligence experts and journalists. The 30 hours of testimony has been edited down to a two and a half hour play by Richard Norton Taylor, Called to Account: The Indictment of Anthony Charles Lynton Blair for the Crime of Aggression Against Irag - A Hearing.
