HC Deb 12 April 1948 vol 449 c38W
Major Beamish

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether a decision has yet been taken forcibly to repatriate any Yugoslav nationals against whom the Foreign Office considers that a prima facie case as war criminals, Quislings or traitors has been made out, other than the five individuals about whom a decision has already been made; and if he will give details of such new decision.

Mr. Mayhew

The cases of the 147 Yugoslavs detained in the Munster Lager camp in Germany have now been considered by the competent legal authorities. Aprima facie case of wilful and active collaboration has been established against 16 of these men, who are to be handed over to the Yugoslav authorities. Twenty-two of the cases are still under review, and the remaining 110 have been released. Of the Yugoslavs detained in Austria, two more have been surrendered to the Yugoslav authorities, after the establishment of a prima facie case of wilful and active collaboration; and a further 12 have been released.
