Suspected war criminal Laszlo Csatary of Hungary will not be charged with the murder of 300 Jews in 1941, prosecutors in Budapest said.
Csatary’s alleged complicity in the murder of some 15,000 Jews in 1944 is still being investigated.
Accusations that Csatary, 97, helped send the 300 to their deaths at the Kamyanets-Podilsky camp in Ukraine were "groundless," Bettina Bagoly of the Budapest municipal prosecutor's office said Wednesday.
In an interview for Hungary’s Kossuth radio, she added that Csatary was not present at the site of the deportation and lacked the authority to be responsible for it.
