Could Blair be prosecuted? Immunity challenged in court

A high court judge will decide if Tony Blair’s legal immunity can be challenged, which could eventually lead to the former Prime Minister being prosecuted for his involvement in the Iraq war.

In 2016, an attempt to bring a private prosecution against Mr. Blair failed, as Westminster Magistrates Court granted him immunity, saying such cases could ‘involve details being disclosed under the Official Secrets Act’.

The aim was to charge Mr. Blair with the crime of ‘agression’, something which Attorney General Jeremy Wright denies exists in British law.

The judge will consider submissions from both sides, but there will be no public hearing.
