A Lithuanian medical commission decided that a 92-year-old alleged Nazi-era war criminal is fit to stand trial, according to one of the judges. The trial of Aleksandras Lileikis was suspended last September, when the judges cited his poor health. Lileikis is accused of handing at least 75 Jews over to Nazi death squads during World War II while he was a top official in the Nazi-sponsored Lithuanian security police.
