Pasqua, Galloway et Saddam

Le rapport (bipartisan) de la sous-commission du Sénat américain sur ces détournements du Programme de l’ONU “Pétrole contre nourriture” est ici en PDF (22 pages). L’introduction:

This Report presents the evidence gathered by the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (the “Subcommittee”) establishing that Charles Pasqua, the former French Minister of the Interior, and George Galloway, a newly-reelected Member of the British Parliament, were granted substantial oil allocations from the Hussein regime under the U.N. Oil for Food Program. In particular, the Subcommittee presents documents created by the Iraqi Ministry of Oil during the reign of Saddam Hussein, interviews with senior officials of the Hussein regime that were interviewed by the Subcommittee, and interviews of Hussein regime officials conducted by the U.S. Treasury Iraqi Financial Asset Team.

That evidence shows that some of Pasqua’s allocations were personally approved by Saddam Hussein. In addition, the evidence reveals that Pasqua attempted to hide his activities for “political reasons” and because he “fear[ed] political scandals.” Similarly, an Iraqi Ministry of Oil document indicates that Galloway appeared to use a charity for children’s leukemia to facilitate at least one of his oil transactions. That evidence is presented below.

On peut facilement creuser le sujet sur Galloway chez Harry’s Place. Pour Pasqua, la blogosphère française a l’air plus dédaigneuse… Mais je suis prêt à  compléter!
