Massacre suspect freed from charges

LADISLAV Nižňanský, 88, who was on trial for three wartime massacres in which 164 people were killed in 1945, has been acquitted on all charges.

A Munich court concluded on December 19 that it was impossible to prove who actually ordered the killings of the civilians - 146 inhabitants of the Slovak villages Ostrý Grúň and Kľak, and 18 Jewish people shot near the village of Kšinná.

Nižňanský was the leader of a feared anti-partisan commando group named Edelweiss at the end of World War II.

The court also doubted the verdict of a Communist Czechoslovak court, issued in 1962, sentenceing Nižňanský in absentia to death for the crimes.
