Global Village Idiot arrested

Goodness me it's been a busy day. Global Village Idiot, Alexander Downer, was placed under citizen's arrest in Melbourne this morning. Unfortunately he got away.

The "warrant" for GVI's arrest laid charges of war crimes in relation to Iraq, also violations of the United Nations charter, violations of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and violations of the Convention against Torture.

Melbourne Indymedia has photos together with a copy of the arrest warrant.

AAP has a report which tells us that the incident was "not a security breach, but an example of police and security staff doing their jobs well."
