German court receives Demjanjuk complaint

German court receives Demjanjuk complaint

A German lawyer for suspected Nazi death camp guard John Demjanjuk is seeking to block his client's deportation from the United States.
A Berlin court will decide whether to take up the case, a spokesman said.
A copy of the complaint provided by Demjanjuk's lawyer argues the 89-year-old Ohio resident is too ill to be transferred to Germany to face trial in Munich on suspicion of Nazi-era crimes.
Lawyer Ulrich Busch wants the German government to withdraw its willingness to accept Demjanjuk.
The Justice Ministry refused comment.
