Nazi War Criminals in Argentina
Ruled Immune by Federal Judge
MONTEVIDEO, (JTA) — A
federal judge in Buenos Aires
ruled that Argentina's statute
of limitations guarantees im-
munity from prosecution after
15 years and thus bars trial for
Nazi war crimir_als who have
taken refuge in Argentina.
Federal Judge Leopoldo Isaur-
ralde made the ruling when an
extradition request by Czecho-
slovakia for Jan Durcansky,
wanted for participation in mass
murders during World War II,
reached his court.
Citing the 15-year limitation,
Judge Isaurralde noted that
"everybody knows that World
War II ended May 9, 1945." He
added that since it was "obvi-
ous" that Durcansky "could not
be judged under Argentine law
because he has acquired im-
munity through the passage of
time, this country cannot allow
him to stand trial in another
It was noted that under this
ruling, Adolf Eichmann, seized
in Buenos Aires and now await-
ing trial in Israel for his role
as the person who planned and
directed the extermination of
6,000,000 European Jews, could
not be prosecuted in Argentina -
if he were - returned as Argen-
tina has demanded.
Judge Isaurralde became in-
volved in the Eichmann case
when he accepted for trial a
suit by Eichmann's wife in
which she demanded punish-
ment of the Israelis who seized
her husband, as well as damages
