Collaborator Loses
Supreme Court Appeal

Washington (JTA) — A
Mineola, Long Island man ac-
cused of murdering 20,000 Jews
and other war crimes as a Nazi
collaborator in his native Latvia
during World War II, faces
deportation to the Soviet Union
following the U.S. Supreme
Court's rejection last Monday of
his final appeal.
The ruling ended a 10-year ef-
fort by the Justice Department's
Office of Special Investigations
(OSI) to deport Boleslays
Maikovskis, 82, who gained ad-
mission to the U.S. as a resident
alien in 1951 by concealing his
Nazi activities.
According to the Justice
Department, "As chief of police
he (Maikovskis) participated in
assaults upon and murders of
Jewish and other Latvian
civilians, including arrests and
execution of the inhabitants of
Audrini and the burning of the
village." He also ordered the
round-up of all gypsies in his
police precinct in Reekne pro-
vince in Latvia, the Justice
Department charged.
In 1965, Maikovskis was
sentenced to death in absentia
by a Soviet court for col-
laborating with the Nazis in the
deaths of 20,000 Jews in Latvia.

His attorneys argued in appeal
that he would face death by fir-
ing squad if deported to the
USSR. The Soviet Union ap-
pears to be the only country
prepared to accept him, accor-
ding to Neal Sher, director of the
OSI.
Proceedings against Maikov-
skis began in 1976. In August,
1984, the federal Board of Im-
migration Appeals ordered his
deportation, overturning an
earlier ruling that would have
allowed him to remain in the U.S.
Maikovskis, a retired carpenter,
had been living in Mineola with
his wife. The order was based in
Maikovski's false claim when he
entered the U.S. that he was a
railroad clerk in Latvia during
the war.
Subsequently, he admitted he
had been a temporary "keeper of
order" in Rezenke but denied be-
ing in the Latvian police force.
Still later, he confessed to order-
ing the mass arrests of all
villagers in Audrini and the bur-
ning of the village in reprisal for
the killing of two Latvian police
officers. His attorneys claimed
in his appeals that he had no
choice but to carry out German
orders.
