U.S. Government Seeks to Deport Accused Nazi Guard and End Delay Tactics

Breaking News

The Justice Department says it wants to clear the way to deport John Demjanjuk to Germany and end what it considers delay tactics.

The government said in a letter released on Friday that it plans to ask a federal appeals court in Ohio to dismiss a stay that on Tuesday stopped the deportation of Demjanjuk a few hours after immigration officers took him from his home.

In a letter to the clerk of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, Assistant U.S. Attorney Michelle Heyer wrote that the government won't remove Demjanjuk for five days after a dismissal order, up to and including April 30.
