Latvia’s ambassador to Britain said his government would seek the extradition of war crimes suspect Konrad Kalejs from Australia if there was enough evidence for prosecution against him. “If there’s enough proof,” Normans Penke told BBC Radio, “then of course, the extradition case will be in place, and he will stand in front of court.” Kalejs, suspected of aiding the slaughter of thousands of Jews in Nazi-occupied Latvia during World War II, has been living in Britain, which on Monday ordered him to be deported to Australia. He holds Australian citizenship.
