Dutch arrest warrant for unpunished Nazi

The Dutch Government has issued a European arrest warrant for one of the most prominent, unpunished Nazi war crimes suspects – a collaborator convicted in the Netherlands, but living free in Germany.

Klaas Carel Faber, 88, was convicted in 1947 of complicity in 22 murders. He was given a death sentence commuted to life in prison, but escaped to Germany in 1952, where he was granted citizenship.

Germany refused to extradite him and attempts by authorities there to prosecute him foundered on technicalities.
