England's Iraq inquiry closes its eyes to Blair's war crimes and financial gain from waging war in Iraq, an anti-war activist tells Press TV.

Press TV has conducted an interview with documentary film maker, David Lawley Wakelin with Alternative Iraq Inquiry who has made films criticizing the Iraq war, to further shed light on the issue.

A protester has branded Tony Blair a war criminal after storming the Leveson Inquiry hearing where the former prime minister is giving evidence.

The man, dressed in a white shirt and chinos, entered the room from behind Lord Justice Leveson where the door is manned by a sole usher.

He appeared to catch security at the Royal Courts of Justice off guard and was able to shout out his message before he was bundled away.

As Mr Blair looked on, the protester said: "This man should be arrested for war crimes. JP Morgan paid him off for the Iraq War three months after we invaded Iraq.

"They held up the Iraq bank for $20bn. He was then paid $6m every year and still is from JP Morgan six months after he left office. The man is a war criminal."

Lord Justice Leveson immediately ordered an inquiry into the security breach.

Appearing slightly stunned, he said: "I'm sorry for that Mr Blair. I would like to find out how this gentleman managed to access the court through what is supposed to be a secure corridor.

"I will have an investigation undertaken about that immediately. I apologise."

Mr Blair added: "Can I just say on the record what he said about Iraq and JP Morgan is completely and totally untrue. I have never had any discussion with them about that."

Sky News' Martin Brunt said a 49-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing a breach of the peace.
