Suspected war criminals who settled in Britain after World War II will be investigated by a special team of retired police officers being set up by the government, the Daily Mail reported Sunday.

The inquiry will be headed by the former director of public prosecutions, Sir Thomas Hetherington. He will provide the names of suspects to the police team to research their backgrounds, the Daily Mail reported.

Sir Thomas received 110 names in Moscow last week. They include alleged middle-ranking SS officials who fled to Britain from countries under Soviet control.
