Other Names: Havens for war criminals
Incidence: Paraguay has granted asylum, at a price, to former dictators, Nazi war criminals, right-wing extremists, drug traffickers and common criminals. The terrorists against Western industrialized countries have been given safe havens in Syria, Libya, Iraq, Iran, former German DR and Hungary. In 1993 declassified files in Argentina indicated that the country had received over 1,000 Nazi war criminals and collaborators who had fled there after World War II, much larger than had been previously estimated. In 1993 the collapse of trials against alleged war criminals in countries such as the UK led to them being described as a haven for war criminals.
