The verdict for suspected war criminal Dr. Sandor Kepiro, a Hungarian gendarmerie officer during the Second World War, will be heard on Monday in the Buda District Court in Budapest, Hungary. Kepiro, 97, is on charge for war crimes relating to his role in the massacre of hundreds of people around the region of the Serbian city of Novi Sad in January 1942.

More than 1,200 people were killed in the massacre including Jews, Serbs and Roma, and was carried out by Hungarian military and gendarmerie forces. Kepiro was discovered living in Budapest by the Simon Wiesenthal’s chief Nazi Hunter Dr. Ephraim Zuroff in 2006.
