SYDNEY - Alleged Nazi war criminal Karoly “Charles” Zentai has paved the way for a damages suit against the Australian government for wrongful imprisonment.

Zentai, a 91-year-old pensioner living in Perth, filed a writ last week for unspecified damages inflicted while he was in prison against the federal minister for home affairs, the federal attorney-general and the chief executive of the Western Australia Department of Corrective Services.

Zentai was imprisoned in Western Australia for nearly two months in 2009.

Zentai was accused of committing a "war crime" when he allegedly killed an 18-year-old Jewish man in Hungary in 1944. He has denied the charges since his 2005 arrest by the Australian Federal Police after it was tipped off by the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
