Upgraded Security for Prosecutors, Witnesses in IDF Hebron Soldier’s Trial

Thursday, July 7th, 2016

Israel has upgraded protection of prosecutors in the manslaughter trial of an Israeli soldier who killed a Hebron terrorist while he was lying injured on the ground after stabbing another soldier. Military prosecutors in the case received extra security after being threatened, according to a report by Israel’s Channel 2 television news.

Four IDF soldiers testifying in the trial have also been given extra security after expressing fear for their safety.

IDF Sgt. Elor Azariya was charged with manslaughter after he killed Abdel Fattah al-Sharif in March.

The terrorist had launched a stabbing attack on soldiers at the site together with a second terrorist. Other troops at the scene had already opened fire in defense and killed the second terrorist.

Nazi War Criminal Dies in Hospital Evading Conviction

Monday, August 12th, 2013

Suspected 98-year old Hungarian Nazi war criminal Laszlo Csatari died in hospital on Monday. He faced charges of involvement in the deportation of Jews from a town in Slovakia during World War II.

Csatari denied the charges. Nevertheless, he was at the top of the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s list of alleged Nazi war criminals.

After being sentenced to death in absentia by a Czech court in 1948 Csatari fled to Canada, where he lived and worked as an art dealer before being stripped of his citizenship in the 1990s.

He returned to Hungary where he lived for about 15 years before prosecutors began investigating his case in late 2011, based on information from the Wiesenthal Center. In June, 2013, Hungarian prosecutors finally charged him, saying he had been “actively involved in and assisted the deportations” in 1944 of Jews from a ghetto in Kosice.

The former police officer Csatari “regularly beat the interned Jews with his bare hands and whipped them with a dog-whip without any special reasons, regardless of their sex, age or health,” prosecutors said.

The UK The Sun tracked down Csatari, photographing him and confronting him at his front door.

Now, those are paparazzi we can be proud of…
