UK envoy tells Livni about universal jurisdiction proposal

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.
