Thank you, Lupo

out of curiosity, why would they have referred the papers to the Palermo court?


Posted 25 February 2011 by voloire

He was prosecuted because he waited until 1952 to ask for his discharge paper.


Posted 25 February 2011by Giuseppe

Why would there be cause for prosecution for not requesting a discharge paper?
