Demjanjuk Trial Recessed Until June

Download PDF for this date

The trial of suspected war criminal John Demjanjuk was recessed Thursday until June 22 while prosecution and defense teams visit West Germany to interview three former SS men who claim to remember him from the Treblinka death camp.

The prosecution has been unable to locate one of the witnesses, Otto Horne of Berlin, who is known to be alive but may be too ill to testify. If he cannot be found, the court will reconvene on June 15, according to Judge Dov Levin, President of the three-judge panel hearing the case.
