Latin Americans Urge Trial of Eichmann in Israel by Foreign Judges

A number of Latin American and Asian countries are seeking to persuade Israel to agree to a trial of Adolf Eichmann in Israel by a tribunal composed of judges from India, Mexico, and Sweden, the Christian Science Monitor reports.

The report says that proponents of this plan argue that the three countries represent the best traditions of three continents in the field of religious liberty and racial tolerance “and their judgment could not fail to have a deep effect throughout the world. ” Argentina would probably agree to a trial by such a tribunal, the report states.
