The Chilcott Committee of Inquiry established by the UK government to consider the Iraq war has announced that it will publish the submissions it received analysing the legal arguments relied on by the UK for the use of force in Iraq. The announcement of its website reads as follows:
In June 2010, Sir John Chilcot issued an open invitation for International Lawyers to give their analysis of the legal arguments relied upon by the UK Government as the legal basis for military intervention in Iraq. The deadline for submissions was on 13 September 2010; around 35 submissions were received. Those submissions which addressed the issues raised in Sir John’s invitation will be published with the Inquiry report.
