Bush Cancels Attending Keren Hayesod Geneva Event

Former US President George W. Bush has canceled a visit to Geneva, Switzerland, where he was to address a Keren Hayesod gala, due to the risk of legal action against him for alleged torture.

Bush was to be the keynote speaker at the annual dinner on February 12th. However pressure has been building on the Swiss government to arrest him and open a criminal investigation if he enters the country. Keren Hayesod has said they were canceling Bush’s participation for security reasons, not because of the possibility of criminal complaints.
