War Crimes Trials: Volume 1 This trial, the first to be completed under the jurisdiction of a British Military War Crimes Court, was held at Hamburg, on 17th October, 1945, and the three succeeding days.
The indictment charged the accused with violations of the laws and usages of war in that they were concerned in the killing of members of the crew, Allied nationals, of the s.s . Pcleus by firing and throwing grenades at them after the torpedoing of that Greek steamship. Evidence was given for the prosecution by members of the Ll-boat crew, and affidavits made bv three survivors of the crew were read in court.
The defence of Eck, the Kommandant, was that of operational necessity, and of the others that they were acting under superior orders.
