Kadima MK Avi Dichter canceled a visit to Spain on Monday, because Spanish authorities would not guarantee that he would not be arrested.

Dichter, a former Shin-Bet chief, was invited to speak at a conference. Arrest warrants for top Israeli politicians and generals have been issued in Spain, including for Dichter, who was internal security minister at the time of Operation Cast Lead in the Gaza Strip.
