Germany canceled the pensions of five people for World War II-era crimes. The news was reported by Germany’s Ministry of Social Welfare to the Simon Wiesenthal Center office, said Efraim Zuroff, the director of the center’s Israel office. Three additional cancellations are imminent, Zuroff said. The move was consistent with a law passed by the German Parliament in January 1998.
