PERTH, Australia (AP) — An alleged Nazi collaborator wanted in Hungary in the torture and killing of a Jewish teenager in 1944 won an appeal Friday against extradition from his adopted country of Australia. Charles Zentai, 88, is suspected by the Hungarian government of being one of three men who brutalized and killed a Jewish teenager in Budapest in 1944 for failing to wear a star identifying him as a Jew. Zentai, who migrated to Australia in 1950 and later became a citizen, says he is innocent and was not even in Budapest at the time. Hungary issued a warrant for his arrest in 2005, and after a long legal process Australian Home Affairs Minister Brendan O’Connor late last year approved a request to send Zentai back to face trial. Zentai and his family appealed the decision to Australia’s Federal Court, and on Friday Judge Neil McKerracher ruled in his favor. McKerracher said O’Connor was not authorized to approve the extradition because Hungary’s accusations against Zentai fell short of what are required under Australian law to honor an extradition request.
