BERLIN, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- A German court spokesman said Friday no decision had been made on whether to prosecute U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld for the Abu Ghraib prisoner scandal.
The daily Tagesspiegel reported German justice authorities would not act on a criminal complaint filed by an international legal team in November against Rumsfeld and other U.S. senior officials because no German nationals were involved.
But a German court spokesman said: "We have yet to decide whether or not to pursue the charge."
Tagesspiegel said German law prevents federal Prosecutor Kay Nehm from taking legal action unless Germans were involved -- either as suspects or victims.
Wie kann man "sod off" auf Deutsch sagen?
They should consider the fact that Rumsfeld commands enough forces to make French the official language of Germany.
Apparently to Germans panty raids are more offensive than making lamp shades from Jews.
Big talk from mice.
To attempt it would be an act of war. This is an astonishingly unserious act by an ever-increasingly unserious country.
I think it's time we recall some diplomats.
That would be Fick dich, Topf Kopf!
BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZT wrong answer......you try him and you have made a country full of new enemies.
Bunch of Nazi. The children of Hitler are up to it again.
I hope so.
Sorry. Got a little carried away there.
Rummy considers kicking Germany's ass.
I fully agree with you. I'm tired of Euro judges trying to extend their jurisdictions to include the known universe.
'Schiebs dir in den Arsch' would be a good translation, but I may not swear in this board - so I can't tell you.
Them ain't Fokkers, them's Messerschmidts.
Fire at will!
Whoa.... a different story here.
Here's the other thread today saying the Germans are not pursuing the charge:
I wonder what's up?
