Don’t let Britain become a safe haven for war criminals

19-01-2010 00:00

The UK Government are planning imminent changes to the law, to avoid any future attempts to prosecute suspected war criminals, Israeli or otherwise.
This would see the UK reneging on its international treaty obligations, particularly those under the Fourth Geneva Convention which commit signatories to 'seek out and prosecute persons suspected of war crimes wherever and whoever they are, whatever their status, rank or influence, against whom good prima facie evidence has been laid.
' Such an attempt to undermine the judiciary’s independence and integrity must be rejected in the strongest terms.
