Lord Ahmed has firmly denied offering a bounty. He said he told the meeting that Mr Bush and Tony Blair should be prosecuted for war crimes.
They have suspended me? That's a surprise to me. I did not know. I did not offer a bounty. I said that there have been war crimes committed in Iraq and Afghanistan and those people who have got strong allegations against them - George W Bush and Tony Blair have been involved in illegal wars and should be brought to justice. I do not think there's anything wrong with that... If the Labour Party want to suspend me I will deal with the Labour Party. They will have to give me some evidence.
