The person that wrote that article did not get all their facts correct. For mentioning Syria, from what I hear in the news for over the last year or so Syria is is the middle of a very bloody civil war. Getting a Nazi war criminal from there the Syrian government is MUCH more interested in trying to keep the current government in power....Austria from what I heard has a 50 years statue of limitation on any crime in that country....Italy last year convicted some nine in absentia, because they ere the only survivors of that German division that were still alive. Germany said they could not extradite them to Italy or honor the Italian sentence BECAUSE there is NO EVIDENCE these surviving soldiers had any direct involvement....The person that wrote this article should get his facts straight.
