A delegation of IDF officers cancelled a planned visit to the UK last week, after the British hosts couldn't guarantee that arrest warrants wouldn't be issued against the invitees. Britain's Attorney-General Baroness Scotland of Asthal, currently in the country, is scheduled to meet senior justice ministry officials on Tuesday, and the issue of changing UK law to prevent the arrest of Israeli officials is expected to loom large.
