Ex-Nazi Death Camp Guard's Stay of Deportation Revoked

A U.S. immigration judge is revoking John Demjanjuk's stay of deportation, meaning the reprieve ends Wednesday for the suspected Nazi death camp guard.

The 89-year-old suburban Cleveland man who came to the U.S. after World War II is accused in a German arrest warrant of 29,000 counts of acting as an accessory to murder at a camp in Nazi-occupied Poland in 1943.

Demjanjuk had received a reprieve on Friday after arguing that deportation would amount to torture because of his poor health. The judge's decision to revoke the stay and not reopen the case came Monday, the day authorities in Germany had previously expected Demjanjuk to arrive in that country.

Demjanjuk has denied any involvement in any deaths.
