Efraim Zuroff, the head of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, which specializes in investigating Nazi war crimes during World War II, called Estonia's investigation of Nazi crimes a total failure.
The report singled out two cases, one involving Venezuela resident Harry Mannil, who the center accused of arresting Jews and communists in German-occupied Estonia, and another involving Mikhail Gorshkov, who moved back to Estonia from the United States in 2002.
The center's F ranking places Estonia in the same company as Romania and Norway.
