    Hungarian court says WWII conviction moot
    Source: AP(3-1-07)

    BUDAPEST -- A court said Thursday the 1944 conviction and sentencing of a former Hungarian armed police captain for crimes committed during World War II cannot be enforced.

    Sandor Kepiro, 93, was convicted but never punished for his role in killings committed by Hungarian forces in Novi Sad, Serbia, during the Nazi occupation of Yugoslavia in World War II, according to the Simon Wiesenthal Center...

    The Budapest Municipal Court issued a statement saying the 1944 ruling by a Hungarian military court cannot be enforced because a retrial shortly afterward annulled the sentence.

    He's 93 - feed him a diet of prunes, bananas and baked beans - wash it down with Budwiser. After a day or two he'll beg to be put out of his misery if he doesn't die first... :evil4:
