Galloway hit by US criminal investigation

EDDIE BARNES
POLITICAL EDITOR


GEORGE Galloway is under criminal investigation over allegations that he lied to the US Senate about his role in the Saddam Hussein oil-for-food bribery scandal, American prosecutors have disclosed.

The controversial MP now faces the full weight of the US justice system. Scotland on Sunday can reveal that Galloway has been referred to the US Department of Justice, two federal prosecutors and to the district attorney in Manhattan, New York, over claims that he has committed perjury.

Both the Department of Justice and the Manhattan district attorney confirmed that they were investigating the Senate´s claims. The Respect MP told senators under oath in May that neither he nor anyone on his behalf had benefited from the oil-for-food regime conducted by Saddam.

Last week, however, two reports - one from the US Senate, the other from the Independent Inquiry Committee (IIC) of the United Nations - claimed his wife and a close friend working in Iraq had received oil funds granted by Saddam for Galloway.

The chairman of the Senate Committee, Norm Coleman, sent a dossier containing both his evidence and that provided by the UN to prosecutors on Friday. As perjury is a felony in America, Galloway could face trial in front of a jury, and a prison sentence of up to five years.

The decision by Senators to send their claims to all levels of the US justice system: state, federal and local, is being seen as a clear attempt to ensure at least one prosecutor takes the case to a conclusion, and as further evidence of the determination of US officials to pursue Galloway through the courts.

They have also sent their report, with the findings by the IIC, to Sir Phillip Marr, the standards commissioner for the House of Commons, and to the Charity Commission for England and Wales. The Charities Commission has stated it wants to examine the claims that illegal Iraqi oil money was laundered through a charity - the Mariam Appeal - on which Galloway was a trustee. Galloway denies the appeal was operating as a charity.

It is understood the DA in Manhattan has been asked to investigate as many of the cash transfers linked to Galloway originated from New York, so putting the case in its jurisdiction.

The Department for Justice could carry out its own investigation on behalf of the state, under the authority of Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez. Alternatively, Gonzalez could offer help to either federal prosecutors or the DA to help them pursue the case.

The district attorney in Manhattan, Robert Morgenthau, has a long record of pursuing cases involving white-collar crime, corruption and bribery.

A spokeswoman for Senator Norm Coleman confirmed that the path to prosecution of Galloway had now begun.

She said: "In light of the overwhelming evidence given, the sub-committee will refer the matter to the proper law enforcement authorities.

"In doing so, the sub-committee will refer evidence that Galloway´s wife received $150,000 from oil allocations and that the Mariam appeal received $440,000 from oil allocations. They will also refer the additional $120,000 received by Galloway´s wife contained in the IIC investigation." US senators are convinced they can prove their case against Galloway. Since May, the committee tracked down a series of bank payment slips it says prove that funds were being siphoned from the Iraqi oil-for-food scheme, through Galloway´s business partner in Jordan, and benefiting his wife and press officer.

Senator Coleman has accused Galloway on six counts of lying to or misleading the US Senate. An official from the Department of Justice confirmed that the Senate´s allegations would be examined

He said: "We´re obligated to investigate any potentially criminal matter brought to our attention, review it and take it from there." A spokeswoman for the DA´s office in Manhattan confirmed that it would also examine such a report.

However, Galloway remained defiant yesterday. He has already begun his fight back, claiming on Friday that Tariq Aziz, Saddam Hussein´s former foreign minister, had rebutted the claims. Aziz´s testimony to the Senate and to the UN was crucial in linking Galloway to oil payments.

Galloway said: "I welcome and call for and beg for them to charge me with perjury. The perjurers and liars are all in the White House and in the Senate. All I say is I will see them in court," he said.

There has been no evidence to suggest that Galloway personally benefited from any Iraqi oil deals.

Galloway is one of the few public figures on the planet with the courage to stare down the satanic cabal that orchestrates and profits from these phoney wars. They are accusing him exactly of what they themselves do ... which is typical evil stategy. I look forward to Galloway facing them down again. Do a little research on who Norm Coleman is, who funds him, where his loyalties lie, and who he replaced in the Senate.

Most on the poop you post has absolutely no relevance to reality, no basis in fact, and devoid of truth, so what is your problem? Oh, I get it, I presume that the UK will try him for treason, I forget that the UK is full of nutters like you.

Re: Galloway To Be Arrested For Perjury, Bribery, And May Even Be Tried For Treason In The UK!!!!!
MP George Galloway has won £150,000 in libel damages from the Daily Telegraph over claims he received money from Saddam Hussein´s regime in Iraq.

The Glasgow Kelvin MP had denied ever seeking or receiving money from Saddam Hussein´s government, which he said he had long opposed.

The newspaper said it was in the public interest to publish the claims, based on documents found in Baghdad.

It later emerged Mr Galloway will stand in Bethnal Green at the next election.

Mr Galloway, who was expelled from Labour for comments about the Iraq war, will contest the seat for the Respect coalition against sitting Labour MP Oona King.

Mr Justice Eady said he was "obliged to compensate Mr Galloway... and to make an award for the purposes of restoring his reputation".

Outside the court, Mr Galloway said: "I had to risk absolute and utter ruin to bring this case.

"If I had lost I would have been homeless, I would have had everything I possess taken from me and would have been bankrupted and forced out of public office.


I don´t feel in any way happy about the award of £150,000

George Galloway


Galloway stands against Labour
The case for neutral press

"In those circumstances I don´t feel in any way happy about the award of £150,000.

"I feel angry that I have been effectively banished from the floor of the House of Commons for more than a year, I have had to risk everything to bring this action.

"I feel angry against [former telegraph owner] Conrad Black, [former editor] Charles Moore and [Lord Black´s wife] Barbara Amiel."

A Telegraph spokesman said the judgment was "a blow to the principle of freedom of expression in this country".

The newspaper was refused permission to appeal although it can apply to the Court of Appeal direct to take the case further.

Following publication in April 2003, an investigation was begun by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards.


Mr Galloway was a regular visitor to Baghdad

Neil Darbyshire, the newspaper´s executive editor, said questions arising from the Iraqi documents still needed to be answered by the commissioner.

"It has never been the Telegraph´s case to suggest that the allegations contained in these documents are true," he said outside court on Thursday.

"These documents were published by us because their contents raised some very serious questions at a crucial stage in the war against Iraq.

"The Telegraph did not and could not perform a detailed investigation into their contents."

He added: "When we published the documents we did so believing that their contents were important, should be made public and would in due course be investigated by the proper authorities."

´Seriously defamatory´

Mr Justice Eady imposed a "stay" on damages and costs pending the outcome of any such application, which is likely to be in the New Year.

Mr Galloway said costs amounted to £1.25m.

The judge said the allegations were "seriously defamatory" of Mr Galloway.

He said readers of the Telegraph claims may have understood them to mean:


It was the defendants´ primary case that their coverage was no more than ´neutral reportage´ ...but the nature, content and tone of their coverage cannot be so described

Mr Justice Eady
Profile of the MP

Mr Galloway had been in Saddam´s pay, secretly receiving about £375,000 a year.

He diverted monies from the oil-for-food programme, thus depriving the Iraqi people of food and medicines.

He probably used the Mariam Appeal, a campaign Mr Galloway launched to raise money for an Iraqi girl with leukaemia, as a front for personal enrichment.

What he had done was tantamount to treason.

Mr Justice Eady said: "It was the defendants´ primary case that their coverage was no more than ´neutral reportage´ of documents discovered by a reporter in the badly-damaged foreign ministry in Baghdad, but the nature, content and tone of their coverage cannot be so described."

Telegraph foreign correspondent David Blair had earlier told the judge how he had found the documents inside the Iraqi foreign ministry.

´No opportunity´

The judge said that although Mr Galloway was interviewed by telephone on 21 April, he was not given an opportunity to read the Iraqi documents beforehand, and neither were they read to him.

The reporter who contacted him, Andrew Sparrow, only summarised the claims relating to funding of the Mariam Appeal, but did not tell him the newspaper was planning to publish claims about personal enrichment, the judge said.

"[Mr Galloway] did not therefore have a fair or reasonable opportunity to make inquiries or meaningful comment upon them before they were published."

You mean you have nothing to offer but repeating your self. You know, and I know dead kitty that Galloway is headed straight to jail and you can not defend his actions as he can´t defend them either so weasel words is all that is left. He says he got no direct payments, but he did receive payments through his wife, so he is a liar here in the states and that is where he will do his time if, like I said he has the brass to face the charges.

You can´t debate that, so you won´t, thus proving my point.

Nice try at attempting the ´diversion thread´, but the real hot topic of the moment are the upcoming indictments of the Bush admin.
Besides, Galloway has met Saddam just as many times as Rumsfeld has. When one opens up a can of worms, the other worms fall out onto the floor as well.
