Kadima and opposition leader Tzipi Livni declined a request to lecture in Britain due to her inability to obtain a meeting with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and not due to fears of getting arrested, sources close to Livni said Monday night. Livni was invited a month ago to address the Jewish National Fund UK's annual conference in London, but two weeks ago, she turned down the invitation because Brown would be abroad at the time.

Israel Radio, however, reported that a British court had indeed issued an arrest warrant against Livni for alleged war crimes committed during Operation Cast Lead, but annulled it upon discovering that the Kadima leader was not in the UK physically.
