Mr Justice Anthony Barr ruled Peter Curran (51) had not been threatened. Mr Curran could now face a substantial legal costs bill for the 25-day hearing involving four legal teams and six senior counsel. Mr Justice Barr also found Mr Curran had sent five bogus emails in a desperate attempt to entice a K Club superintendent, whom he alleged made the threat, into making an "inculpatory statement" which would also incriminate the K Club owner and millionaire businessman Michael Smurfit.

This was a big shock for me," recalled the 94-year-old, who is currently on trial for his role as an SS guard at the Stutthof concentration camp in what was then German-occupied Poland. "The Wehrmacht officers were eloquent," said Rehbogen in a rare testimony read out in court by his lawyer last month. "They seemed downright heroic to us. But when I saw the prisoners, it was clear that this picture the Wehrmacht was trying to convey, was wrong." Former SS guard Johann Rehbogen, pictured in 1945 when he was a prisoner of war in the US. … [Read more...] about Most Nazis escaped justice. Now Germany is racing to convict those who got away
