Motion text

That this House notes that since the War Crimes Act 1991 became law there have been very few prosecutions; further notes that there is widespread concern that former Nazi war criminals have been living with impunity in the UK; believes the resources available to the police to bring these evil men to justice may not be adequate, with time not on the side of the prosecuters; and calls upon the Government to give a progress report to the House, with particular reference to the cases of Avtandil Pardshanadze, also known as Antony or Anton Husak, former SS Galiziens Bohdan Tymkewycz, Wolodymyr Lenczyk, Wasyl Woloszyn, Iwan Szczur, Mychaylo Trembluk, Iwan Serbyn, Roman Bych, Mykola Lehkyj, Wolodymyr Szczyhol, Wolodymyr Panasiuk, Stefan Polotniuk, Victor Booskariw, Iwan Jurgens, Stephan Androusynk, Bohdcn Romanowsky, Jurig Opara, Janis Lipe, Wladymyr and Wolodimir Shur and Peter Glusch.
