Murder charges recommended for Minnesota man accused of Nazi crimes

What do you think? Should 94 yr old people be prosecuted for possible war crimes from so long ago, where the chief witnesses are dead?

Germany has in recent years taken the position that people suspected of Nazi crimes must be prosecuted, no matter how old or infirm, as it did in the case of retired Ohio autoworker John Demjanjuk, who died last year at age 91 while appealing his conviction as a guard at the Sobibor death camp.

No statute of limitations for murder. Though like you say proving guilt (especially beyond a doubt) is very difficult in a case like this. I myself would not bring charges in this case since it would be a weak argument.
