John Demjanjuk’s attorney has filed a motion in the Munich state court where Demjanjuk is on trial saying his client’s rights are being violated by keeping him in jail and demanding damages “in the millions.”
Attorney Ulrich Busch says Demjanjuk should be given credit for time served in Israel and the U.S. and said in a motion Thursday the court was “depriving him of his freedom.” Busch says that adds up to more than he could be expected to serve if convicted.
Demjanjuk is standing trial on 28,060 counts of accessory to murder for allegedly having been a guard at the Nazi’s Sobibor death camp. He denies the charges.
The court took the motion under advisement but has rejected similar requests in the past. Damages are generally considered after a verdict.
