GERMANY - John Demjanjuk, convicted and free

Curtain on the last major trial against a former Nazi war criminal. On 12 May, the Munich court sentenced him to five years in prison John Demjanjuk, found guilty of having collaborated with the death of 27,900 Jews while he was a guard at the Sobibor camp. However Demjanjuk was released because of his age: 91 years.

The Bavarian daily refuses to argue about the "softness" of the possible penalty: the important thing was to "condemn, establish guilt" and "the truth".
