Lawyer for 'Nazi war criminal' John Demjanjuk calls for trial into murder of 27,900 Jews to be suspended

Breaking News

The lawyer representing John Demjanjuk, the 89-year-old accused of being an accessory to the murder of thousands of Jews at a Nazi death camp, today called for his trial to be suspended.

Ulrich Busch told the Munich hearing that German law can't be applied to the case of the Ukrainian-born Demjanjuk.

He also argued that the trial should be suspended because documents from earlier proceedings against his client in the US, Israel and elsewhere weren't given to the defence.

'The defence couldn't be prepared because of the missing documents," Mr Busch told the state court.

The defence team has portrayed Demjanjuk, a retired Ohio car factory worker who was deported from the US in May 2009, as a victim of the Nazis and then of judicial authorities in several countries.
