A federal public defender in Ohio has filed a request last week to bring Nazi war criminal John Demjanjuk back to the United States.

Attorney Dennis Terez in his request last week to US District Judge Dan Aaron Polster claimed that prosecutors withheld documents that could have helped his case. Terez asked the judge to order a hearing to determine why prosecutors did not turn over a 1985 FBI memo about a Nazi identification card that placed Demjanjuk at the Trawniki guard camp.

The FBI memo speculates that the card could have been fabricated by the KGB. The card has been tested and found authentic several times over the past 30 years, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported.
