Chilean communists sue Bush over prisoner tortures

Cheney, Powell and Rumsfeld are also mentioned in the law suit. Leftist lawyers want to question US President as soon as he arrives in Santiago to attend to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation council summit, which Vladimir Putin is also expected to attend.

The Communist Party of Chile and other smaller leftist political forces sued on Tuesday US President George W. Bush and other top officials from his administration over tortures against prisoners at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.

The lawsuit was filed at the Santiago Court of Appeals that could eventually question President Bush at his arrival in Chile, where he is expected to attend to Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) council summit in November.

However, supporters do not expect the case to progress. Moreover, they consider the action symbolic and an "act of dignity" that "represents millions of Chileans who reject the violence and terrorism represented by the figure of Bush."

Also mentioned in the law suit were Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and former Iraq Administrator Paul Bremer. "We want Bush to be questioned when he comes here," in November, said lawyer Juan Enrique Prieto.

Russian President Vladimir Putin will also attend to APEC’s summit in Chile.

The Trump administration is looking for a replacement for the American military contingent in the north of Syria. If the United States agrees with Saudi Arabia, the situation in the south of the country will become a lot more intense as Iran and Israel stand on the brink of war
