Ex-Nazi Charged With War Crimes

Sixty-five years after he was found guilty and sentenced to death for torturing and helping send Jews to death camps from the Slovak city of Kosice, former Nazi police commander László Csatary was charged with war crimes. The 98-year-old—named the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s most wanted war-crimes suspect—was detained by Hungarian authorities last summer and put under house arrest in Budapest after decades in hiding following his death sentence. “He is charged with the unlawful execution and torture of people, [thus] committing war crimes partially as a perpetrator, partly as an accomplice,” said a spokeswoman for the Budapest Chief Prosecutor’s Office, who added that he “deliberately provided help to the unlawful executions and torture committed against Jews deported to concentration camps.”
