Begium hoisted on own petard

The Belgium foreign minister has been sued under the Belgium law that has been used to sue presidents of the US and military officers.

His problem is that the case cannot be referred to another country for dismissal.

"Michel, an outspoken critic of the U.S.-led war in Iraq, was furious about the allegations against him.

'''This is extremely irresponsible. It's completely crazy and irrational,' Michel told reporters at a European summit in Greece.

''It will ridicule Belgium on the world stage ... I'm accusing them of blackening our name.''
