BUDAPEST, Hungary — A 97-year-old Hungarian man who became a Canadian citizen in 1955 and is suspected of abusing Jews and helping deport thousands of them during the Holocaust was taken into custody Wednesday, questioned and charged with war crimes, prosecutors said.
The case of Laszlo Csatary was brought to the attention of Hungarian authorities by the Simon Wiesenthal Center last year.
Prosecutors decided to charge Csatary with the “unlawful torture of human beings,” a war crime that carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.
