The International Criminal Tribunal for Afghanistan at Tokyo was
established in order to charge the Bush administration with its war
crimes against Afghanistan. This tribunal was proposed by Mr. Akira
Maeda, Prof. of international criminal law at Tokyo Zokei University.
Three trips were made to conduct investigations of war damage in
Afghanistan. The tribunal campaign began in Tokyo on October 5 and in
Osaka on October 6, 2002. Sixteen public hearings were held between
December 15 2002 and November 15, 2003. In March 2004 the ICTAT found
George Bush guilty of attacking civilians with indiscriminate weapons
and other arms during the US-led invasion of Afghanistan and issued
orders banning depleted uranium and other weapons.
