Federal Judge
Halts Actions

Toronto (JTA) — A Canadian
federal judge has halted denat-
uralization and deportation pro-
ceedings against three accused
Nazi war criminals.
Leaders of Canada's Jewish
community criticized the ruling.
Judge Bud Cullen halted the
proceedings July 4 because of
what he said was a breach ofju-
dicial independence. The breach
allegedly involves an assistant
deputy justice minister asking
Chief Justice Julius Isaac to speed
up the pace of the proceedings
against the accused Nazis.
Eventually, the alleged request
became public, and Judge James
Jerome, who was presiding over
the case against the accused
Nazis, stepped down and a judi-
cial inquiry was called.
The three accused war crimi-
nals are Johann Dueck, Helmut
Oberlander and Erichs Tobiass,
all Canadian citizens living in
southern Ontario.
"This is an appalling decision
and a moral outrage," said Bernie
Farber, national director of com-
munity relations for the Canadi-
an Jewish Congress.
"We agree that this discussion
[between the minister and the
judge] was inappropriate and mis-
guided, and that it shouldn't have
occurred. But we believe the rem-
edy by the judge far outweighed
what was necessary." -
Irving Abella, a past president
of the congress and the national
chairman of its`war crimes com-
mittee, said, "To end these pro-
ceedings is to deny natural justice
to the thousands of Jews who
were allegedly murdered by these
three individuals, and that's ob-
scene."
He added, "These cases should
be decided on the evidence. They
should not be halted on a proce-
dural issue."
Mr. Dueck, 76, a retired me-
chanic, is accused of taking part
in the killing ofJews and 'other
civilians as a member of the Seli-
dovka district police in German-
occupied Ukraine from 1941 to
1943.
Mr. OberLander, 72, is accused
of having been a member of a
commando unit that massacred
hundreds of thousands ofJews in
Ukraine and Crimea after the
German army's advance into the
southern Soviet Union in the
summer and fall of 1941.
Mr. Tobiass, 84, is accused of
participating in the execution of
civilians in Latvia from 1941 to
1943 as a member of the Latvian
security police, an SS auxiliary
unit responsible for the deaths of
30,000 Latvian Jews.
Despite a 1987 federal war
crimes commission that urged the
government to act quickly against
dozens of alleged war criminals,
Canada has moved slowly.
