MUNICH  — John Demjanjuk's attorney accused a Munich court of acting on the assumption that his client is guilty after judges rejected a raft of defense motions.

Ulrich Busch said Tuesday that the court's decision to reject the motions was a serious blow to the defense but he vowed to press ahead with his efforts.

Retired Ohio autoworker Demjanjuk is standing trial on 28,060 counts of accessory to murder for allegedly having been a guard at the Nazis' Sobibor death camp. He denies the charges.

The judges rejected a motion to recuse themselves from the trial on allegations they hadn't properly considered whether Sobibor was part of an earlier trial in Israel. They also refused defense requests for more files and to hear more witnesses.
