'Bookkeeper of Auschwitz', 96, fit to serve jail term: German court
A former Nazi SS guard known as the "Bookkeeper of Auschwitz", now 96, is fit to serve his four-year prison sentence, a German court ruled Wednesday. Oskar Groening was found guilty in July 2015 of being an accessory to the murders of 300,000 people at the Nazi death camp. But he filed an appeal for the sentence to be suspended. "Based on expert opinion, the superior regional court finds that the convicted individual is fit to serve out the term despite his advanced age", said the court in Celle in northern Germany.
