Kaunas Court Affirms Sentence of Two Years “Restricted Freedom” for “Facilitation of Genocide” by Former KGB Officer for Arresting Adolfas Ramanauskas-Vanagas in 1956

Ramanauskas-Vanagas was an Alleged Nazi Collaborator Implicated in Holocaust Crimes

He was one of the “heroes” over which Lithuanian prosecutors sent Interpol to disturb then chairperson of the Association of Lithuanian Jews in Israel Joseph Melamed in  Tel Aviv in 2011; Defending History’s summary report. Updates from August  and September 2011. Then Lithuanian ambassador Darius Degutis wrote in Haaretz, in reply to Yossi Melman’s report, that all the alleged Holocaust perpetrators over which Mr. Melamed was harassed were “falsely accused of serious crimes”…

To this day, there has been no apology to Mr. Melamed or the other Holocaust survivors maligned by Lithuanian prosecutors. Three of them were Israeli citizens, but still a palpable — and painful — silence from the Israeli Embassy in Vilnius…

 

DH’S OPINION:

“Of course former KGB officers who committed crimes should be exposed and prosecuted! But when the charge today is “facilitation of genocide” and the offense for which the individual is charged was a 1950s arrest of an alleged 1941 Holocaust collaborator/perpetrator, there is a double abuse of the law and the misdefinitions and obfuscations of history on which it is based.”
