Eichmann Must Answer ‘guilty’ or ‘not.guilty’ in Court Today

Download PDF for this date

The trial of Adolf Eichmann, charged with directing the annihilations of 6, 000,000 European Jews, will resume in the special Beit Haam court room-here tomorrow, when the three-judge tribunal will announce its decision regarding defense challenge of the court’s competence to try the prisoner.

There is little doubt that the court will adjudge itself competent, rejecting the arguments set forth by Dr. Robert Servatius, chief of defense counsel. After the court’s decision tomorrow, it is expected that Eichmann will be ordered formally to enter his plea of guilty or not guilty If the plea is not guilty, as freely forecast here, Attorney General Gideon Hausner will then formally open the case for the prosecution.
