U.S. Takes Steps to Deport Demjanjuk

(March 24, 2009)


U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement contacted the German government seeking travel documents needed to deport accused World War II Nazi guard John Demjanjuk. According to his son, Demjanjuk is not in federal custody and remains at his home in suburban Cleveland. Prosecutors in Munich, Germany say that upon extradition, he will be formally charged with 29,000 counts of accessory to murder. Though the German Justice Ministry could not confirm that U.S. authorities as requested the specific documents, its spokesman Ulrich Staudegale reiterated that the U.S. and German governments continued to work closely to secure Demjanjuk's extradition or deportation.
