Germany: Boere: Former SS Convicted to Life Imprisonment

2010-03-23, Aachen, Germany. The German Court convicted Heinrich Boere, former Silbertanne member, for killings of three Dutch civilians (Fritz Hubert Ernst Bicknese, Teun de Groot, Franz Wilhelm Kusters) in 1944. Boere joined SS shortly after Germans took over Maastricht. Boere’s lawyer unsuccessfully pleaded the defence of superior orders. Judge Nohl pointed out that there was no evidence that Boere attempted to challenge the orders. The Prosecution argued that Boere was a willing member of the Waffen SS. Boere was sentenced to death in absentia in the Netherlands in 1949, a sentence that was later commuted to life imprisonment. In the past, Germany court refused to extradite him to the Netherlands, on the grounds that he may have German nationality, and another one refused to force him to serve the Dutch sentence because he was tried in absentia.
