A defamation suit against the Simon Wiesenthal Center's chief Nazi hunter, Dr. Efraim Zuroff, filed by alleged Hungarian Nazi collaborator Dr. Sandor Kepiro, will begin in Budapest on Friday.

Zuroff discovered and exposed the alleged former gendarmerie officer, and claims that Kepiro played an important role in the mass murder of at least some 1,250 civilians in the Serbian city of Novi Sad. Kepiro had been living in Argentina for almost 50 years.

"Nothing could be more absurd than my being in the docket in Budapest, while a notorious Hungarian Nazi collaborator remains a free man in the Hungarian capital," Zuroff said.
