American asks Russian UN representative for help prosecuting Bush

21 May, 02:07 PM

US citizen Anthony Keyter has written a letter to Russian Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin asking him for help bringing former US president George W. Bush before the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity, reports. Churkin is currently the chairman of the UN Security Council. Keyter brought a case against the former US president, as well as former attorney general Alberto Gonzalez and former CIA director Robert Mueller, in the ICC previously, but the case was rejected because the United States does not recognize the court.

Keyter holds that the methods used to question terrorist suspects during the former US administration amount to torture.

Keyter has filed a number of suits in connection with the alleged human rights violations. According to his website, Keyter has sued Bush, Sen. John McCain, former attorney general John Ashcroft, former vice president Dick Cheney and “230 Government Officers” in US district courts. He has tried unsuccessfully to bring cases against 443 Known Insurgents, 535 Members of the 110th Congress and 14,164 Seditious Conspirators as well.

Keyter is a former Boeing pilot instructor who lives in Gig Harbor, Washington. The dapper, gray-haired native of South Africa states on his websites that he has an advanced degree in physics and is an accomplished musician. He also complains of “having all his property and assets seized through illegal government action.” He has been fighting to retrieve his assets since 2002.
