US Watchdog Group Files Nuclear Charges Against Chirac

Friday, March 28, 2003 US Watchdog Group Files Nuclear Charges Against Chirac

French President Jacques Chirac is guilty of illegal proliferation of nuclear technology and arms trafficking, a judicial watchdog group charges.

Judicial Watch has filed legal complaints against the French chief executive with both Interpol and European Police Office (Europol), and is demanding an investigation of the blockbuster charges of massive corruption.

Judicial Watch said it had filed complaints "for the unlawful proliferation of nuclear technology, the unlawful trafficking of arms and military technology, and the violation of UN trade sanctions imposed after the 1991 Gulf War, as well as additional UN sanctions relating to the so-called 'oil-for-food' program."

In a statement the group said that it particularly wanted an investigation of "financial contacts and dealings" between Chirac's Rally for the Republic party and other parties, and government officials and corporations.

"These unlawful activities involve private persons from France, Iraq, the People's Republic of China and Syria. It is likely that several other parties and countries, unknown at this time, are also involved in the criminal conspiracy."

The statement referred to a 1991 book by French journalists Claude Angeli and Stephanie Mesnier which included details from Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein revealing his links with French politicians.

In the statement Judicial Watch chairman Larry Klayman stressed that Chirac had also been accused of accepting bribes while he was mayor of Paris but that a court had ruled he could not be prosecuted until he left office.

"However, Interpol and Europol have no constraints on beginning an investigation of President Chirac," Klayman said, adding: "He and his colleagues of violations of law and public trust are a disgrace to the high ideals upon which the French Republic was founded."

Klayman continues to cheapen himself.

He jumps on every bandwagon, filing lawsuits much as a $50 whore turns tricks at a car dealer convention.

Actually, this will all come out after the war. Its the reason Chiraq was so hell-bent on opposing it.

Nothing new. Chiraq and hussein have been lovers for a long time. Chiraq helped Saddam built Osiraq, a reactor complex designed mostly for weapons productions and has continually provided "goods" that are not allowed by the UNSC Resolutions under the guise of the Food-For-Oil Programme. Approx 12% of France's GDP is based on business with Iraq.

Agree. Didn't this organization have ONE successful suit in its existence - against his mother? They are like Geraldo - they have 'shocking allegations', 'blockbuster revelations' and they're always gonna 'blow the lid right off of' (fill in the blank).

Yep, anything that is topical for the moment to try and raise a buck...... that's ol' lar, the man of intergity. I saw this on another site earlier, but it's not unexpected to see Limbacher promoting the press release.... If he didn't carry it then I don't think it would get any coverage from any media.

Come on now, Klayman may seem totally ridiculous but maybe he'll get lucky...

After all, the EU has the Belgian courts yapping at our ankles, why can't we have our own attack chihuahua?
