Eichmann’s Lawyer Believes Death Sentence Will Not Be Carried out

Dr. Robert Servatius, chief counsel for Adolf Eichmann, said upon his arrival here today from Jerusalem that in his opinion it is “ten to one” that the death sentence against Eichmann will never be carried out. He said that, in his appeal, he will challenge the Israel court’s Jurisdiction over Eichmann, the method of Eichmann’s apprehension through his kidnaping in Buenos Aires, and the “procedural faults” of the trial itself.
