German Court Denies Request to Extradite Demjanjuk

A court has denied Spain’s request to extradite John Demjanjuk to stand trial in Madrid on war crimes charges, questioning the evidence presented in the indictment against the former Ohio autoworker and Spain’s jurisdiction, a spokeswoman said Thursday.

Demjanjuk was convicted in Germany May 12 of 28,060 counts of accessory to murder after a Munich court found he served as a guard at the Nazi’s Sobibor death camp in occupied Poland and sentenced to five years in prison.
