The Simon Wiesenthal Center says it has filed a lawsuit asking Berlin
prosecutors to open an investigation to determine if the family or
attorneys of the world's most-wanted Nazi war criminal have been
lying about whether he was dead or alive.

The suit comes after former SS doctor Aribert Heim's son,
Ruediger Heim, claimed in February that his father had died in 1992
in Cairo, where he had been living under an alias.

But Efraim Zuroff, the top Nazi hunter at the Simon Wiesenthal
Center, said Wednesday that Heim's attorney recently claimed in an
ongoing tax case in a Berlin court that there was still regular
contact with Heim, who would be 94 years old if he is still alive.

The attorney denies making such a statement.
