It is also to be noted that while emphasis throughout the trial has been on the subject of murder, the defendants are charged also in Counts I and II with Crimes against Humanity and violations of Laws and Customs of War which include but are not limited to atrocities, enslavement, deportation, imprisonment, torture and other inhumane acts committed against civilian populations. Thus, if and where a conclusion of guilt of murder is reached, such conclusion is not based alone on the charge of murder but on all committed acts coming within the purview of Crimes against Humanity and War Crimes. In each adjudication, without its being stated, the verdict is based upon the entire record.
