Danish lawmaker: Detain Livni for war crimes

August 28, 2006 16:54

Left-wing Danish lawmaker Frank Aaen of the small, left-wing opposition Red-Green Alliance said he wants Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni detained when she arrives in Denmark later Monday, saying that as an Israeli Cabinet member, she is partly responsible for alleged war crimes in Lebanon. Livni was to arrive in Denmark later Monday and to meet Tuesday with Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen and Foreign Minister Per Stig Moeller. "I believe the minister should be detained while it is being investigated whether she can be charged for war crimes," he said in a statement. He said he had reported Livni to Danish police. The Danish government did not comment on Aaen's statement, and police were unlikely to detain Livni.
