Livni, Barak ‘wanted for war crimes’ in Poland
Israeli leaders continue are still wanted in Europe, but not in a positive way: Knesset members visiting Poland for ceremonies marking International Holocaust Day were surprised to see ads against Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Opposition Chairwoman Tzipi Livni in the city of Krakow on Tuesday evening.
Posters hung not far from the Israeli lawmakers’ hotel read in English, “Wanted for war crimes,” offering the public an award of 10,000 euro in exchange for information on Barak or Livni’s expected arrival in Europe. The ads included a website address for people interested in providing information on the Israeli officials.
Several members of the Israeli delegation â€“ including MKs Israel Hasson, Yohanan Plesner and Rachel Adatto of the Kadima party and Uri Orbach of Habayit Hayehudi â€“ spotted the posters on a number of bulletin boards across the Polish city. The four sought to tear the ads, but decided to let security officials look into the matter.
