British Government Promises Israel It Will End War Crimes Arrest Warrants:
"The British government is attempting to curb arrest warrants to issue 'universal jurisdiction' arrest warrants for suspected war crimes committed anywhere in the world.
New legislation effectively giving the Attorney General - the UK's highest law officer official - the power to veto particular arrest warrants, such as those against foreign politicians, now seems likely."
The process is disfunctional when the Criminals themselves control the process. In Canada also, attempts to launch actions or enforce existing law against western war criminals such as visiting US officials has gone nowhere - the work of Lawyers Against the War is one example. The attempted citizen's arrest of George Bush by activist Splitting the Sky is another.
Belgium has already gutted 'universal jurisdiction' legislation. Spain is also now beginning to curb 'universal jurisdiction' actions against foreign leaders. This thread is for info and discussion relating to war crimes, war criminals and attempts to prosecute or shield them.
