Ex-politicals call for trial of Red crimes


     KYIV Hundreds of former political prisoners and dissidents from 19 countries gathered here on November 7-8, calling for a symbolic "Nuremberg-like" trial over crimes committed by former Communist regimes, Ukrainian Television reported on November 8.  The organizers, the International Congress of Political Prisoners of Communist Regimes, believe such a trial would serve as a moral cleansing in various post-Soviet societies where years of repression and human rights abuses have gone unpunished and often uncondemned.  The congress, along with the All-Ukrainian Society of the Repressed and the Israel-Ukraine Society, appealed to Ukraine's Parliament to consider making November 7 (the anniversary of the October 1917 revolution) a national day of mourning for victims of totalitarian regimes.  (OMRI Daily Digest)
