British Ambassador Matthew Gould called Kadima chairwoman Tzipi Livni on
Wednesday to inform her about the submission of a bill in Parliament that would
change his country’s policy of universal jurisdiction that lets judges order the
arrest of visiting politicians and generals.
Livni canceled a London trip
in December 2009 after her office received news of a secretly issued arrest
warrant awaiting her arrival.
Livni told Gould that the bill was good
news for relations between Israel and Britain and expressed hope that it would
be passed as soon as possible.
