BUDAPEST, Hungary - Laszlo Csatary, a former police officer who was stripped of his Canadian citizenship and indicted by Hungarian authorities for abusing Jews and contributing to their deportation to Nazi death camps, has died. He was 98.
Csatary, who lived for years in Montreal, died Saturday of pneumonia in a Budapest hospital, said his lawyer, Gabor Horvath B.
Hungarian authorities claimed earlier this year that Csatary was the chief of an internment camp set up in a brick factory in 1944 for around 12,000 Jews in Kosice — a Slovak city then part of Hungary.
