Kutschmann Arrest Warrant Revoked

Justice authorities in West Berlin announced today they had revoked an arrest warrant against Walter Kutschmann, a former Nazi officer who had been living in Argentina under the alias Pedro Ricardo Olmo. The eight-year-old warrant against Kutschmann was revoked because a charge of aiding and abetting the murder of Jews in Poland during World War II had become void under West Germany’s statute of limitations, a spokesman said. Kutschmann had been identified as a Nazi officer by Simon Wiesenthal.
