Jewish Community: Prime Minister Should Act against Nazi Law

The Centraal Joods Overleg, (CJO) the umbrella organization of the Dutch Jewish community has expressed its surprise at the attitude of Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte concerning the Dutch-German war criminal Klaas Carel Faber. Faber is the most sought-after surviving Nazi war criminal. The basic reason why Germany doesn’t want to extradite Faber is that he is a German national. He however, only got that nationality due to a never-cancelled Nazi law which gave German citizenship to collaborators during the war. Rutte has refused to intervene with German Chancellor Angela Merkel regarding the cancelling of the law.
