Israeli War Criminal Held Up At London Airport

Major-General+Amos+YadlinAmos Yadlin, A war criminal says that he was stopped by British border control before allowing proceeding. Israel’s former head of so-called military intelligence, Amos Yadlin, was held up at Heathrow Airport in London this week for perpetrating war crimes, Channel 2 reports.

Yadlin, the Zionist Union’s designated candidate for war minister was heading a delegation from the Institute for “National Security Studies”, including former IDF war criminals chiefs Gabi Ashkenazi and Dan Halutz and Benjamin Netanyahu’s former security advisor Yaakov Amidror.

Yadlin was stopped at passport control by border officials.

“It was only for a few minutes,” Yadlin told Channel 10 on Friday, dismissing the incident. “I was not arrested; I was not questioned,” he added.

“We were part of a dialogue mission to the UK. Everyone else went through passport control. I was help up for about 10 minutes. They probably had something that showed up on their computers that they had to check. They didn’t say or explain anything. They asked a few questions. After about 10 minutes, I was sent on my way,” Yadlin said.

Israeli war criminals have been stopped in the past by UK lawyers representing pro-Palestinian groups, who have taken advantage of legal steps and sought to have them arrested for breaches of international law under terms of universal jurisdiction.

In 2011, Britain changed the law to make it more difficult to obtain arrest warrants against Israeli war criminals by requiring the consent of the Director of Public Prosecutions. But the law applies to those visiting Britain in an official capacity. Those making trips of a personal nature are left vulnerable.

Last month, the Israeli war criminal Shaul Mofaz found himself in such a situation as reports surfaced that he could face arrest upon arrival at Heathrow, not having obtained diplomatic immunity ahead of the trip. He travelled to London for a conference and back without incident.

Tzipi Livni, has repeatedly dodged attempts by activists to seek her arrest for war crimes while on trips to the UK.

In June, Livni avoided possible arrest when she attended the Fortune Most Powerful Women International Summit in London, which could have been considered a personal visit, leaving her unprotected. To preempt the problem Livni arranged to meet with senior UK government officials, enabling the Knesset speaker to approve her travel as an official visit. British lawyers and activists have issued an arrest warrant for war crimes against Livni.

In 2009, ahead of a planned trip, a British court issued a warrant for Livni over alleged war crimes committed by the IDF during the three-week conflict. She did not go through with that trip.

    It is only a matter of time. Liven especially can expect justice to catch up, she’s not old enough to say adios before the inevitable day arrives.

    Of course they let him go, who expected otherwise in this corrupt society? This isn’t even news worthy.

    B.V., you’re absolutely right … they let Amos Yadlin go, naturally; so, who expected otherwise in this corrupt society? I agree with you that this isn’t even newsworthy.
    Letting these Israeli war criminals go after a relatively brief stop and a few questions by border control officials is so routine that most media ignores it.
