Britain’s highest court denied a convicted Nazi war criminal the right to appeal his double life sentence. Anthony Sawoniuk, 79, was found guilty last year of murdering two Jews in the Soviet Union in 1942. The court offered no further comment when it denied his appeal. Sawoniuk is the only person in Britain ever found guilty of Nazi war crimes.
