Alleged Nazi death camp guard John Demjanjuk filed a motion to dismiss the U.S. government’s latest attempt to strip him of his citizenship. Demjanjuk claimed that the denaturalization proceeding amounted to double jeopardy since he had already faced a similar action. After being stripped of his U.S. citizenship in 1981, Demjanjuk was extradited to Israel in 1986 to stand trial for crimes against humanity.
