Puerto Montt, Chile – The Simon Wiesenthal Center announced today that it had already received new information regarding the possible whereabouts of its “Most Wanted” Nazi war criminal Dr. Aribert Heim, in the framework of the launch of the latest stage in its “Operation: Last Chance” project. In a press conference held here today by its chief Nazi hunter, Israel director Dr. Efraim Zuroff, and its Latin American director Sergio Widder, the Center’s officials stated that since announcing its new ad campaign for “Operation: Last Chance” in Santiago on Tuesday, it had received two important tips regarding the possible whereabouts of Dr. Heim in Chile.
According to Zuroff and Widder:
“The current phase of “Operation: Last Chance” which includes an ad campaign focusing the 315,000 euros reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of Dr. Heim and meetings with top police and justice officials in Chile and Argentina to help facilitate the ongoing investigations, will not necessarily lead to Heim’s immediate capture. These steps are designed, however, to put in place the tools which we hope will ultimately lead to his arrest.”
