WASHINGTON (JTA) —
THE
Brazil's new ambassador to sited the Brazilian Embassy
TUNE
Washington, Antonio after a news conference at
Azeredo da Silveira, was re- the Capitol at which they

agreed that the government urged mobilization of public

of Brazil could find means to
help put on trial the alleged
Nazi criminal, Gustav
Wagner, who is at present
protected by Brazilian law
from extradition.
The ambassador, who as-
sumed his duties two weeks
ago, was urged by three
Americans that Brazil could
declare Wagner persona
non grata and he would
then have to leave Brazil for
a country that possibly
would not have the extradi-
tion restriction Brazil has.
The Brazilian Supreme
Court has ruled that under
its 25-year limitation sta-
tute, Brazil cannot extra-
dite Wagner to Austria for
trial there. In their meeting
with the ambassador, Rep.
Robert Dornan (R-Calif.)
and Rabbis Marvin her
and Abraham Cooper of the
Simon Wiesenthal Center
for Holocaust Studies at
Yeshiva University of Los
Angeles, observed the
court's decision was on judi-
cial and not on moral terms.
The ambassador, Hier
said later, was "very
sympathetic" to the re-
quest from Dornan and
the rabbis to provide
them with a copy of the
court decision denying
extradition and convey-
ing the suggestion for the
persona non grata action
to his government. The
ambassador said that
Brazilian public opinion
is very much opposed to
Wagner and considers
his stay in Brazil "a stain
on the flag of Brazil in the
community of nations."
