The March 23, 2012 Haaretz Israeli news agency article reported that Demjanjuk is deemed innocent according to German law because the appeal trial had not been heard by the higher court..

This is consistent with the earlier Israel trials whereby Demjanjuk was exonerated.

The presumption of innocence until proven guilty --beyond a doubt-- is not a mere technicality-- but a hard and fast principle of jurisprudence.

Munich state court spokeswoman Margarete Noetzel has underscored that Demjanjuk is innocent and that he has no criminal record; therefor it is highly unethical for news media to refer to him either as a camp guard, a Nazi, or a criminal.

Demjanjuk is presumed innocent according to the German court.

The first act of the war should be recorded to include attack on the Protestants in Prussia, Germany. It was the Catholic Centre Party who brought the Nazis to power for this very reason.
1932 coup d'etat in Prussia

Prussia was a pillar of democracy in the Weimar Republic. This system was destroyed by the PreuBenschlag (Prussian coup) of Reich Chancellor Franz von Papen. In this coup d'etat, the government of the Reich unseated the Prussian government on 20 July 1932, under the pretext that the latter had lost control of public order in Prussia. Papen appointed himself Reich commissioner for Prussia and took control of the government. The PreuBenschlag made it easier, only half a year later, for Adolf Hitler to take power decisively in Germany, since he had the whole apparatus of the Prussian government, including the police, at his disposal.

Article title: Japan PM dismisses WWII war crimes trials as 'victors' justice'

Japan's nationalist prime minister has dismissed the Tokyo war crimes trials in the aftermath of World War II as nothing more than victors' justice.

Shinzo Abe, who was elected in a landslide general election victory in December, expressed beliefs that are likely to trigger anger in nations that were occupied by the forces of imperial Japan in the early decades of the last century and raise eyebrows in allied nations, primarily the United States.

"The view of that great war was not formed by the Japanese themselves, but rather by the victorious Allies, and it is by their judgement only that [Japanese] were condemned," Mr Abe told a meeting of the House of Representatives Budget Committee on Tuesday.

In his previous short-lived spell as prime minister, for 12 months from September 2006, Mr Abe said that the 28 Japanese military and political leaders charged with Class-A war crimes are "not war criminals under the laws of Japan."

More than 5,700 Japanese were charged with Class B and C war crimes before the International Military Tribunal for the Far East, which was convened on April 29, 1946. Initially, 984 individuals were sentenced to death and 475 received life sentences.

After the prolonged legal discussions, seven were executed in December 1948, including General Hideki Tojo, the commander of the Kwantung Army and later the prime minister, while the majority of the others sentenced to hang or life prison terms were paroled by the mid-1950s.
