MUNICH— A co-plaintiff in the trial of John Demjanjuk is accusing the defendant's attorney of delaying tactics by introducing dozens of new motions as the case winds to a close.

Demjanjuk, 90, is accused of 28,060 counts of accessory to murder for allegedly having been a guard at the Nazi's Sobibor death camp in occupied Poland.

A verdict is expected in March.

Cornelius Nestler, who represents families of Sobibor victims who have joined the trial as co-plaintiffs as allowed under German law, on Wednesday accused defense attorney Ulrich Busch of trying to slow the trial down by introducing scores of motions that are "all garbage."

Busch on Tuesday introduced some 100 motions, then several dozen more on Wednesday, including requests for more evidence.
