Bolivian President Morales seeks court action against Obama over wars

United Nations, Sept 26, (RHC-PRESSTV), -- Bolivian President Evo Morales has proposed a legal motion against US President Barack Obama over his war policy against other countries.

“I want to propose...that we think seriously about constituting a 'Tribunal of the People' with international bodies and the large defenders of human rights to begin a lawsuit against the [US President Barack] Obama government,” Morales said in his speech to the 68th UN General Assembly on Tuesday.

Last week the Bolivian president said Obama is a “criminal” who willingly violates international law, and that Bolivia is preparing to file legal action at the International Court against the US president for crimes against humanity.

Morales also blasted Washington for its behavior toward Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, who was recently banned from passing though US airspace.

The Venezuelan leader cancelled his plan to attend the UN General Assembly in New York this week because he said he feared for his life.

Morales accused the United States of harboring terrorists and urged that UN headquarters be moved from New York.

The Bolivian president also criticized Washington for denying visas to members of his delegation.

    President Morales' suggestion is an excellent idea. Until the international community begins to treat US governmental leaders like the war criminals that they are, nothing will change for the better.
