Israeli lawmaker and former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said Monday that a British war crimes investigator sought to question her during a trip to Britain over her role in Israel's 2008-2009 Gaza war.Pro-Palestinian groups have previously tried to go after Livni and other Israeli officials using universal jurisdiction, a principle that lets British courts prosecute foreigners accused of crimes against humanity wherever they were committed.The law strained U.K.-Israeli relations, as senior Israeli officials canceled trips rather than face possible arrest in Britain. In 2009, an arrest warrant was issued in Britain against Livni, and Israel's foreign ministry said the warrant was later canceled, after officials learned Livni was not on British soil.However, Livni said she declined immunity for her current trip to Britain on principle.
