Germany's highest court rejected on Wednesday an attempt by John Demjanjuk to challenge his recent deportation from the United States to Munich for trial on charges of being an accessory to murder at the Sobibor Nazi death camp. German Constitutional Court spokeswoman Anja Kesting said that the court would not take up Demjanjuk's challenge as it saw no grounds for violation of the 89-year-old's basic rights. Munich prosecutors accused Demjanjuk of being a guard at the death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland during World War II. They alleged that he was an accessory to murder in 29,000 cases and said they expected formal charges to be filed later this month US authorities deported Demjanjuk from his suburban Ohio home on May 12.
