John Demjanjuk trial: Nazi prison guard case delayed for three weeks





The trial of John Demjanjuk, the Nazi guard accused of involvement in the murder of 27,900 Jews at the Sobibor death camp, was adjourned yesterday because he was too ill to appear in court.

A doctor examining the 89-year-old said Demjanjuk had a fever which continued to rise despite medication and the judge decided it was not safe to transport him from hospital. to court.

Ralph Alt, presiding, said the trial would resume on 21 December.

Wednesday was to have featured more testimony, which began on Tuesday, from some of the approximately 40 relatives of victims who have joined the trial as co-plaintiffs as allowed under the German legal system.
