London:
Lauren Booth, Cherie Blair’s sister who earlier hit the media headlines for converting to Islam, joined George Galloway at the premiere of 'The Killings of Tony Blair' – stylised as The Killing$ of Tony Blair – which mocks Blair’s premiership between 1997 and 2007, according to media reports.

The film portrays Tony Blair as a money-grabbing war criminal and a prime minister who left nothing but misery in his wake, Daily Express reported Thursday.

Cherie Blair's half-sister Booth, who runs a charity founded to support fellow Muslim converts, was joined by former London Mayor Ken Livingstone for screening of the film.

Booth converted to Islam in 2010 and has worked for Al Jazeera, British Muslim TV, Iranian owned Press TV and the UK Islam Channel.

The feature length film comes in the wake of the Chilcot report into the Iraq war, which condemned Blair’s invasion of the country.

The inquiry found Tony Blair's administration presented evidence about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction "with a certainty that was not justified" and troops were sent in before all peaceful options had been exhausted.

The report also found that Blair urged his US counterpart George W. Bush to "act now, and explain and justify later".
