Demjanjuk: 'Terrible case'

Re: “No satisfaction in Demjanjuk case,” May 21, 2011.

In the 30-odd years the John Demjanjuk case has been before the courts, one thing’s stayed constant: Demjanjuk always denied being a German concentration camp guard. His 1988 conviction for war crimes as “Ivan the Terrible” of  Treblinka was overturned on appeal by the Israeli Supreme Court, after the accused had spent five years on death row. Now he’s appealing this latest verdict. Who’s to say it won’t also be overturned and Demjanjuk will die exonerated at long last?

(Once it was proven he wasn’t Ivan, this whole case probably should’ve just been dropped.)
