Co-plaintiffs urge Demjanjuk conviction
MUNICH (AP) -- A Dutch Jew who lost family members in the Holocaust has
urged a Munich court to hand John Demjanjuk the maximum 15-year prison
Manuel Bloch, an attorney from the Netherlands, told the court Thursday
"the evidence against Demjanjuk is abundant" and "fits together like
the pieces of a puzzle."
Bloch is one of 40 relatives of Holocaust victims or survivors who have
joined as co-plaintiffs in the trial against the 90-year-old
Ukrainian-born retired Ohio autoworker, accused of 28,060 counts of
accessory to murder.
Demjanjuk rejects the charges.
Later Thursday, the court is to rule on a defense attorney's request to
have the trial suspended after The Associated Press uncovered documents
showing the FBI believed a key piece of evidence was fake.
