Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz called upon European nations on Monday to eliminate clauses in their legal systems that permit indicting senior IDF officers for war crimes. On Sunday, Brig.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi decided to cancel his planned study period in England for fear of being arrested and put on trial. The IDF recently reiterated its advice to senior active and retired officers to consult with army legal experts before traveling abroad, Army Radio reported.
