A Lithuanian Supreme Court justice said that his newly independent government has suspended the rehabilitation of people sentenced by Soviet courts after World War II on war crimes charges, the New York Times reported. Judge Genadijus Slauta said it was discovered that five exonerations of people convicted of killing Jews were unjustified. He said the court will reverse those cases and review others, the newspaper said.

The first Nazi war crimes trial in Lithuania ended before it began Friday when judges postponed the proceedings indefinitely because of the defendant's ill health. Judges said that Aleksandras Lileikis, 92, was too ill to stand trial and that the case can resume only after his health improves. Lawyers say there is virtually no chance that judges will restart the trial given Lileikis' age and condition.
