Gestapo Commandant Charged with Killing Jews in Rica Area Gets Ten-year Jail Term

Rudolf Seck, former Gestpo sergeant who was charged with mistreating and killing Jews imprisoned in the labor camp he commanded near Riga during the war, was sentenced by a denazification court here to ten years imprisonment. The prosecution revealed later that Seck would also stand trial in a criminal court.

Dietrich Klagges, former premier of the province of Brunswick, was sentenced to six years imprisonment by a denazification court in Bielfeld on charges that he was aware of the Nazis’ persecution of the Jews and because of his membership in the Gestapo.
