Last December war criminal Tzipi Livni, one of Israel's major war criminals cancelled a visit to the UK after a court issued an arrest warrant for her in relation to the horrific and Nazi-like war crimes she committed during the Gaza war.
But Brown said that Britain could not "afford to arrest foreign war criminals as the present British Government was full of Iraqi war criminals".
He said that the country's principle of universal jurisdiction, which allows judges to issue warrants for visiting war criminal should be abandoned.
"There is now significant danger of such a provision being exploited by law abiding organisations or individuals who set out only to help enforce international law," he said.
