Top German court rejects bid for Eichmann files

FILE - The 1961 file photo shows Adolf Eichmann standing in his glass cage in the Jerusalem courtroom where he was tried for war crimes committed during World War II. Germany’s highest court has rejected a newspaper’s suit against a ruling that the country’s foreign intelligence service can keep secret parts of its files on Adolf Eichmann, known as the architect of the Holocaust. The Federal Constitutional Court said Friday July 25, 2014 that the complaint was dismissed last month. No reasons were given for the decision. Bild newspaper had sought to overturn a lower court’s ruling last year that the BND intelligence agency was within its rights to black out passages from the files sought by a journalist attempting to shed light on whether West German authorities knew in the 1950s where Eichmann fled after World War II.
