Rome, December 19 - Italian Foreign Minister
Giulio Terzi said on Wednesday that his country will continue to
push for Germany to respect Italian court rulings issued last
year requiring compensation for Italian victims of Nazi war
crimes.
Last February the International Court of Justice (ICJ)
ruled to annul the earlier compensation ruling by the Italian
court, saying that Italy "failed to recognise the immunity"
granted by international law for the Third Reich's crimes.
"We will continue to call for the enforcement of court
rulings against those who have been identified as responsible
for crimes against humanity", Terzi said at the presentation of
a report by the Italo-German Historical Commission on the events
of 1943-45 together with German Foreign Minister Guido
Westerwelle.
In November 2008 Italy and Germany agreed to set up a
joint commission to probe legal claims linked to the Second
World War, as well as the fate of thousands of Italian
deportees.
Terzi said that though Italy "took note" of the Hague
ruling, which gave "a legal definition to the issue of
compensation" there remain individual cases to be considered.
