The German Ministry of Justice has informed its Dutch counterpart that it is considering its appeal to prosecute a convicted Nazi, a Dutch newspaper has reported.

According to De Telegraaf, the Germans will soon inform the Dutch whether they plan on bringing charges against 88- year-old Klaas Carel Faber, a Nazi war criminal who escaped prison in 1952 and has been living on the run ever since.

The Dutch-born Faber was a member of an SS firing squad. He was originally tried and sentenced to death for his part in the murder of Jews and Dutch citizens.

However, his sentence was later commuted to life behind bars and in 1952, he escaped prison. He is currently living in a suburb of Munich.

Last August 150 lawyers signed a petition organized by Israeli attorney David Schonberg calling upon the Israeli government to urge Germany to take legal action against Faber.
