A source familiar with the internal investigation, however, said that there are no indications that the late Andrija Artukovic was falsely convicted of bearing responsibility for hundreds of deaths during World War II.

The Justice Department had in its files in 1978, but did not disclose, references to a man whom defenders of John Demjanjuk claim was actually the "Ivan the Terrible" at the Treblinka death camp, Assistant Atty. Gen. Robert S. Mueller III disclosed Friday. In the department's first formal statement on the Demjanjuk case since his Israeli death sentence came under serious challenge, Mueller said the department's internal watchdog unit was probing "serious issues of prosecutorial misconduct."

Josef Mengele, the infamous Auschwitz death camp doctor who became a symbol of the Holocaust, slipped through American hands even though he was held in two U.S. POW camps for at least six weeks in 1945, Justice Department Nazi hunters acknowledged Thursday. But their 197-page report on the investigation that confirmed Mengele's death in Brazil in 1979 said they found no evidence that U.S. intelligence agencies or other U.S. authorities knowingly gave assistance to the notorious "Angel of Death."

After six years of legal conflict, the Justice Department is preparing for the first time to deport an accused Nazi collaborator to the Soviet Union, where he faces a preordained sentence of death. While the Justice Department has sought for years to deport Karl Linnas, a 67-year-old immigrant from Estonia--now a part of the Soviet Union--its impending action has divided American ethnic communities and stirred misgivings among liberals and conservatives alike.
