Abstract

This article focuses on British policy towards the treatment of alleged Italian war criminals at the end of the second world war and, in particular, those requested by Yugoslavia for extradition. It reveals that far from conspiring to shield Italians registered as war criminals by the United Nations War Crimes Commission (UNWCC), Britain endeavoured to ensure that they were brought to justice. It also assesses the pressures that affected the implementation of British 'hand-over' policy and examines the developments that led to the decision by the British government to pass on to the Italians the responsibility of implementing 'hand-overs' and punishing Italian war criminals.
