Boycott German goods in condemnation of immorality of John Demjanjuk's trial

Elected representatives to the Lviv oblast government are urging a boycott of German goods to express to Germany Ukrainians' condemnation of the trial of John Demjanjuk in Munich, which started November 30, 2009.

At the opening of the trial Demjanjuk's lawyer, Ulrich Busch, said the case should never have been brought to trial, citing others where guards at Sobibor were acquitted: "How can you say that those who gave the orders were innocent -- and the one who received the orders is guilty?" Busch demanded. "There is a moral and legal double standard being applied today."
