Defense for Ukraine-born
Demjanjuk asks for more evidence
John Demjanjuk's defense team is asking for more evidence to be sought
in his trial on charges he served as a guard in the Nazi's Sobibor
Ukrainian-born retired Ohio autoworker Demjanjuk, 90, is accused of
28,060 counts of accessory to murder. He rejects the charges, saying he
never served as a guard in any Nazi camp.
Attorney Ulrich Busch filed 180 new motions in writing Tuesday
[01Mar2011] to the court.
In a summary read aloud by judges on Wednesday [02Mar2011], he asked
for the court to find a statement from former Sobibor prisoner Dov
Freiberg from 1976. Freiberg allegedly says that he was assigned to
clean the Sobibor barracks where the Ukrainian guards were housed, and
that he does not remember any Demjanjuk.
It was not clear when the judges would rule on the request.
