Austrian Minister Reports to Parliament on Nazi Prosecution Measures

Dr. Christian Broda, the Austrian Justice Minister told Parliament today that his Ministry will soon give the Government a report on the issue of extension of the statute of limitations for prosecution of Nazi war crimes.

Pending action on that question, he said, he was asking all public prosecutors in Austria to cooperate with security officers to make sure that expiration of the statute did not prevent prosecution of all known Nazi war criminals. He pointed out that from the juridical viewpoint, steps had to be taken to exclude any doubt that Austria was not doing everything in its power to prosecute Nazi criminals.
