Former IDF chief faces possible arrest upon landing in London

Former IDF Chief of Staff Shaul Mofaz, who is currently en route to London, faces possible arrest upon landing after all efforts to secure him diplomatic immunity failed due to his current civilian status.

Mofaz is meant to land in London in the next hour, and is not the first Israeli politician to face arrest in the UK. Former Justice Minister and current MK Tzipi Livni needed the UK Foreign Office to officially invite her, in order to avoid arrest last week. Livni was the Foreign Minister during operation Cast Lead, and has had arrest warrants filed against her in the UK by Pro- Palestinian groups on multiple occasions.
