Lithuania plans to restart the trial of a suspected Nazi-era war criminal after the nation’s laws were changed to let the elderly defendant monitor proceedings from outside the court. Aleksandras Lileikis, 92, is accused of handing over at least 75 Jews to Nazi death squads during the war. His trial was halted last September after the judge ruled that the defendant’s poor health left him unable to attend the proceedings.
