The Australian government is appealing a court ruling that spared an alleged Nazi war criminal from being extradited to Hungary. Home Affairs Minister Brendan O'Connor approved the extradition of Charles Zentai in 2009, but a Federal Court judge overturned the decision last year. The government on Tuesday appealed the ruling that said Zentai, 89, of Perth, was not eligible for extradition. Zentai, a former soldier in the Hungarian army, is wanted for questioning in the murder of an 18-year-old Jewish man in Nazi-occupied Budapest in 1944.
