Ivan Lewis: Livni warrant 'can never happen again'


Foreign Office Minister Ivan Lewis has said that the government will take action to reform a law which allowed a UK court to issue an arrest warrant for former Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Livni.

The warrant was granted by a London court at the request of Palestinian plaintiffs, provoking Israeli anger.

It was revoked on Monday when it was found Ms Livni was not visiting the UK.
