Cleveland, OH – John Demjanjuk’s Lawyers Seek His Return to the US


    FILE - In this May 12. 2011 file picture John Demjanjuk waits in a courtroom in Munich. APCleveland, OH – Public defenders for John Demjanjuk (dehm-YAHN’-yuk) have filed a motion in U.S. District Court in Cleveland asking a federal judge to set aside the ruling that led to the retired autoworker’s denaturalization and deportation to Germany.

    The motion filed Tuesday says the government failed to disclose evidence regarding Demjanjuk during various legal proceedings when he was represented by the public defender’s office. Demjanjuk was deported in 2009 to stand trial in Munich.

    The 91-year-old was convicted in May of thousands of counts of acting as an accessory to murder at a Nazi death camp.

    The motion cites a 1985 report uncovered by The Associated Press that indicated the FBI believed a Nazi ID card purportedly showing Demjanjuk served as a death camp guard was a Soviet-made fake.
