Hungary court dropped war crimes charges against accused Nazi

On July 18, 2011, a Hungarian court dropped charges against accused Nazi war criminal Sandor Kepiro, who allegedly participated in a 1942 massacre in Serbia. The decision came down after Kepiro's trial on charges of war crimes had begun. Kepiro denied any involvement in the massacre and all charges brought against him. The prosecution of Kepiro was most likely the last among accused Nazis, considering the advanced ages of those alleged war criminals.
