General von Falkenhausen
29 October 1945
This interrogation summary reports von Falkenhausen's explanation of a captured German document that outlines a program for maintaining security against internal unrest in occupied territories. The document describes a court martial procedure, applicable to civilians as well as military personnel, that directs sentences exceeding five years to the attention of Falkenhausen for the purposes of review. According to Falkenhausen, all of the procedures described in the document went into effect only once he or a higher authority determined a state of unrest to exist in Belgium. The present document is incorrectly dated 30 August 1945; the correct date is likely 30 October 1945, given that the interrogation it summarizes took place on 29 October 1945. The present document is a typewritten copy of adequate quality on slightly browning paper.
