Hungarian prosecutors arrest 97-year-old Laszlo Csatary,
charge him with Nazi-era war crimes

BUDAPEST, Hungary - A 97-year-old former Canadian citizen suspected of helping deport thousands of Jews during the Holocaust was taken into custody in the Hungarian capital Wednesday and charged with war crimes, prosecutors said.

The case of Laszlo Csatary was brought to the attention of Hungarian authorities last year by the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Jewish organization active in hunting down Nazis who have yet to be brought to justice.

In April, Csatary topped the organization's list of most-wanted Nazi war criminals.

Prosecutors decided to charge Csatary with the "unlawful torture of human beings," a war crime that carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Csatary's lawyer, Gabor Horvath B., said his client has been confined to house arrest for up to 30 days due to prosecutors' fears he might try to flee.

Horvath B. said he had appealed the ruling, which also opened the way for authorities to confiscate Csatary's passport.

As he left a Budapest courthouse Wednesday afternoon following the house arrest hearing, Csatary walked slowly down a flight of steps, trying to shield his face from view and leaning on a companion for support.

Tibor Ibolya, Budapest's acting chief prosecutor, said Csatary recounted his Holocaust-era activities to authorities during questioning, saying he was following orders and carrying out his duty.

"The suspect denied having committed the crimes," Ibolya said, adding that during his testimony Csatary's "attitude toward some of his fellow men of a certain religion ... is not what we would consider normal."

According to a summary of the case released by prosecutors, Csatary was a police officer in the Slovakian city of Kosice, at a time part of Hungary.

In May 1944, Csatary was named chief of an internment camp at a Kosice brick factory that served as a departure point for about 12,000 Jews bound for Auschwitz and other Nazi death camps. Authorities said Csatary was present when the trains were loaded and sent on their way.

Csatary "regularly" used a dog whip against the Jewish detainees "without any special reasons and irrespective of the assaulted people's sex, age or health condition," the prosecutors' statement said.

As one train departed with some 80 Jews crammed into one railcar, Csatary refused a request by one of the Jews to cut holes in the walls of the wagon to let more air in, the statement said.

Csatary was convicted in absentia for war crimes in Czechoslovakia in 1948 and sentenced to death. He arrived in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia the following year, became a Canadian citizen in 1955 and worked as an art dealer in Montreal.

In October 1997, Canadian authorities said the [then] 82-year-old had left the country voluntarily to avoid deportation. His citizenship had been revoked in August on the grounds that he had lied about his past when he first immigrated to Canada.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada said in a statement that Csatary "had provided false information about his nationality, and had failed to provide information concerning his collaboration with Nazi occupation forces while serving with the Royal Hungarian Police and, while in this service, his participation in the internment and deportation to concentration camps of thousands of Hungarian Jews."

Ibolya said the investigation was continuing, adding prosecutors were waiting for information from Israeli and Canadian authorities as well as potential testimony from Holocaust survivors.

"I expect this case to continue for months, even taking into account that we are treating it as one that we would like to conclude as soon as possible," Ibolya said.

In Israel, Efraim Zuroff, director of the Wiesenthal Center's Jerusalem office, applauded the arrest.

"When you look at a person like this, you shouldn't see an old frail person, but think of a man who at the height of his physical powers devoted all his energy to murdering or persecuting and murdering innocent men, women and children," Zuroff told the Associated Press.

Hungarian prosecutors say Zuroff first told officials about Csatary in September 2011, meeting with them as recently as July 9 to provide more data about him.

While prosecutors acknowledge Zuroff's role in the case, they have also criticized him for alerting the press in April about his findings.

Ibolya said that by making the case public, Zuroff may also have put Csatary on alert, increasing the chance that he would try to escape and "greatly endangering the success of the investigation."

Pitiful and sad. 97 years old. Give me a fucking break.

Why aren't any communists from Eastern Europe being hunted down and charged with war crimes much, much worse than even the made up gas chambers bullshit?

When I look at someone like YOU, Zuroff, I don't see a person at all. I see a fucking filthy pig and I want to throw up.

Himmler's in the background in that pic. Must have been a big shot, Laszlo.
I see Himmler, but who the hell knows if it's Laszlo.

Let's be serious here. Look what they did when Israel kidnapped a former National Socialist from S. America decades back. They literally put an SS cap on his head, looked at an old picture and said 'Yep, this is him.'.

Personally I'd like to drink some good German beer, eat some bratwurst, shake hands with and then talk to Mr. Laszlo. Maybe get him to sign an autograph for me, if he was even involved with the German war effort during WW2.
 
Honestly, we can afford to give up a few dumb bitches to them. like you said, they would be bi-racial technically...this only leads to their race being dissolved. we out-number the shit out of them, everybody out-numbers them...hitler really took a bite out of crime & dwindled their numbers ;) Between them mixing & the muslims killing them, they won;t be around too much longer.

Also,they have a big african problem, hahahaha. israel is way too small to continue to allow niggers in their state, which they allowed for a long time & now are freaking out and actually trying to pay the nigs to go back to africa. HAHAHA they are done, it's just a matter of time is all.
I thought the term Jewish regarded what religion that person followed! I'm pretty sure it's not race based. The three Abrahamic religion's, 'Christianity, Judaism and Islam' were all picked up by whatever races were around in those times. Please enlighten me if I'm wrong.

You know, I'm so tired of that jew holocaust thing- 6 million jews did not get murdered in WWII.
In fact, the jews declared war on Germany in 1933. Huge global boycott on German goods and shipping long before Hitler was fuhrer. Ther are headlines in papers still existing about it.
Surprising, since the jews are still trying hard to erase evidence of wrong doing on their part.
Germany was still reeling from WW I a war they didn't start BTW.
By the time Hitler came to power, the Soviet jews were running the show and they were murdering ethnic Germans.
If you don't think Hitler was bound and determined to go after and kill the enemy (jews) destroying Germany, you better go read true history for yourself, not remember a few wrong facts in BS history books in grade school.
Better hurry, Rockefellers bought Encyclopedia Britannica and are changing/deleting facts.

For the record, since we have enough forum meetups that end in rape/homicide/suicide we try to condemn people that also want to meet up irl to fight.

Gives the site a bad name and all.

why pitiful and sad he rode the wave when the Nazi's had the power, and he probably used his position as best as he could. Proven by his escape to canada. fuck him take away what life he has left, not that it will make up for the lives he has taken. War is hell he profited very well from it would seem. He was found guilty over 60 yrs ago ffs.



Made up ?
 
there will never be world peace as long there is religion it causes more wars than anything. close minded people thinking that their god is the best and will kill anyone that doesnt believe it. i dont think sending a 97 year old man to jail for past crimes is going to solve anything and i the "hitler youth" on this board will please tell me what the jews did to be killed i really would like an answer and if you say they killed jesus i will laugh cause that is like killing the easter bunny he is a fictional character get over it.
 

inappropriate behavior

Your apology is accepted :)
I know that this shit is a contentious issue with many but the original post is being derailed by personal agendas, opinions, and alot of hate. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but it should be aired in the FLH section, not here.
The entire thread is laced with hate thru personal opinions from the get go... it's to be expected considering we're discussing jews AGAIN. I think it's a fine blurred line... And still think we should take away his bp meds! :p

i take it you dont read nor believe in the bible huh .....
If you are talking about the Christian bible, then no, of course not.

One of the main types of activism I engage in is to try to get as many White people away from that Semitic poison as I can. I'm a Creator. Nature's Eternal Religion is my bible.

It's amazing how old Csatary is and, whether guilty or not of the charges, that he has managed to escape those charges for so many years. Canada has had several alleged WW2 German/Nazi war criminals enter easily under false names during the late '40 and early '50's.

But the old guy won't get jail time if convicted: he'll get, at best, house arrest. And if he is convicted of war crimes, then he will go to his grave with that conviction rather than as the man who has evaded authorities for the last several decades and was never tried. If he is innocent then he will go to his grave an exonerated man.

I suppose that we'll see what becomes of this trial.

I hate how unjust this world can be at times and hope that in death he gets to endure the same suffering he dished out to others in life... but I doubt this happen.
