Post-Standard, The (Newspaper) - January 19, 1988, Syracuse, New York Page Jan. 19, 1988 obituaries Andrija Artukovic Butcher of Dies in jail Andrija Artukovic lived in California Belgrade. Yugoslavia a Andrija Artukovic who was extradited from the United states and convicted of ordering thousands of prisoners killed in world War ii has died in jail at the age of 88, it was reported monday. Known As the Butcher of the Artukovic was sentenced to death by firing squad in May 1986, but his execution was postponed indefinitely because of his ill health. Tan Jug the official news Agency reported that he died saturday in the jail Hospital in the croatian capital of Zagreb but it did not give a cause of death. Artukovic suffered from general and cerebral sclerosis and temporary senility Tan Jug said. In postponing his execution in August the Zagreb court said a medical team found Artukovic suffered from arteriosclerosis cardiovascular disease senility and other ailments. Yugoslav Law does not permit execution if the convict is ill. Hearing of the death his son Radoslav said in los Angeles he was proud of his father and would continue to try to Clear his name. He was not in charge of the secret the younger Artukovic said. His father s extradition in february 1986 and subsequent trial constituted an atrocity that every american should be ashamed he said. Artukovic served As Interior minister and Security chief in the nazi puppet state in Croatia during world War ii and oversaw a grisly network of concentration Camps. He was born in Croatia and Rose to prominence in world War ii and was pronounced a War criminal in 1946. But Artukovic fled Yugoslavia May 5, 1945, initially spending time in Ireland where his son was born to him and his austrian born wife Anna. Artukovic entered the United states in july 1948 and spent most of his time in California. The yugoslav government accused Artu Kovic of being responsible for at least deaths and a preliminary indict ment mentioned in 1986 Yugoslavia won a three decade Legal Battle with the United states to get him Back. The Zagreb indictment accused Artukovic of ordering four separate massacres of civilians and partisans and went into grisly detail about the wartime Camps he Over saw. The 32-Page indictment summarizing witness accounts and documents accused Artukovic of ordering the murder of an unspecified number of people on racial or political grounds. Artukovic consistently denied involve ment in the killings. His three defense lawyers tried to have their client declared unfit for trial but the monthlong proceedings were allowed to continue with regular examinations by court appointed doctors. Before his extradition american authorities declared Artukovic senile and legally Blind. At the trial the defense argued the crimes fell under a 30-year statute of limitations and said none of the 45 witnesses called by the prosecution established Artukovic s guilt. The prosecution said the statute did not cover War crimes. A five Man tribunal in Zagreb found him guilty on All counts. At sentencing in May 1986, chief judge Milos Gajski described Artukovic As the master of life and death founder and inspiring spirit of nazi fascist Croatia was incorporated into communist Yugoslavia after the end of world War ii. The last of several appeals for clemency was turned Down last april. The last article to appear in yugoslav Media on Artukovic said he slept almost All the time and understood Only part of what was said to him. But he ate and liked to listen to music in his guarded Hospital room it said. The president of Zagreb s District court ordered Artukovic s remains buried unmarked at an unspecified location Tan Jug said. Edwin w. Roberts 77, Dies in Liverpool Pulaski Edwin w.
