The close of March 1947 represented the end of the first period of activity
under
the Law for Liberation, as the backlog of non-chargeabl e cases had been
reduced to a
negligeable number. The level of performamxe of Spruchkanmern (benazification
tri-
burals) during April 1947 wAs greatly accelerated, the number of completed
cases being
37,302 during the month as compared with 28,396 for March. The emphasis in
April was
placed upon the trials of those persons charged as major offenders, offenders,
and
lesser offenders, rather than on the less incriminated cases. While only
36 percent
of the cases completed in November 1946 were those of major offenders, offenders,
and
lesser offenders, they represented 73 percent of cases completed in April
194T. Con-
siderable progress also was made during April in the task of mailing notices
of non-
incrimination to those who had been amnestied or found not chargeable. Eighty
percent
of the total had been so notified as of the end of April 1947. During that
month
alone 2,373,377 notices were mailed.
In Internment Eaclosures the tribunals disposed of 691 cases during March
1947,
completing 488 trials and quashing proceedings for valid reasons in the case
of 203.
During the month 2,903 cases in the enclosures had been processed and 847
persons found
as mjor offenders and offenders.
