More 'genocide' word inflation...

...this time from the Estonians. /sigh

"The cousin of Estonia's late president, Lennart Meri, committed genocide by helping deport his countrymen to Siberia nearly 60 years ago, prosecutors said Wednesday. But Arnold Meri, 88, a former top ranking Communist Party official in Estonia, claimed he was a mere civil servant."

Of course, the 'just following orders' defence always works.

And you can't beat the argument that he will "already be dead" by the time they prosecute him.
