West Germany’s Justice Minister Gustaf Heinemann said here today that he would do everything he could to see to it that the prosecution of Nazi war criminals continued even after the expiration of the statute of limitations on December 31, 1969. He made that statement to a delegation of international resistance fighters from Western Europe and Israel, currently visiting Bonn.
