Veterans Leader Says Post-WWII Killings Had Legal Basis

Novo Mesto, 17 April - Post-war executions were legally grounded with the decision of anti-fascist Ally leaders Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin to destroy Nazism, not just defeat it, head of the Slovenian Association of WWII Veterans Janez Stanovnik said on Friday, but condemned the atrocities nonetheless.
