Switzerland considers trying Livni for war crimes in Gaza

Livni to court in Switserland

The office of Switzerland’s attorney general has confirmed that it is examining a legal complaint filed by a Geneva-based pro-Palestinian group against former Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Livni, over her involvement in committing war crimes in the Gaza Strip.

According to Israel’s Channel 10, Livni has been named in a legal suit filed last Monday by a pro-Palestine activist group concerning her role in Israel’s war on Gaza between December 2008 – January 2009. She was a foreign minister and acting premier at the time.

The attorney general’s office accepted this legal request and said would study it.

On May 28, Livni attended an event in the Italian-speaking city of Lugano in southern Switzerland held by the Swiss-Israel association to celebrate the 69th anniversary of Israel’s creation. She left Switzerland on Monday via Italy.
