This chapter examines Nazi laws that must be abrogated in the early period of military government (MG). The report considers four major groups of laws that are in need of immediate abrogation: laws, and other legislative rules, which contradict the principle of the equality of all citizens before the law; measures wholly abrogating or restricting civil liberties; legislative measures which do not fit into the categories either of discriminatory laws or of laws restricting freedom, but the immediate abrogation of which would likewise appear to be imperative; and measures relating to the denazification of the judiciary and the ensuing necessity of suspending the activities of the courts for a certain period. The chapter also offers recommendations for the abrogation of discriminatory legislation and special privileges, non-discrimination in criminal law and procedures, and a general clause concerning the elimination of discrimination.

Keywords:   abrogation, Nazi laws, military government, equality, civil liberties, denazification, discriminatory legislation, special privileges, criminal law, discrimination
