Demjanjuk gets deportation stay

April 4, 2009 00:59

John Demjanjuk, facing charges he was a Nazi death camp guard, has marked his 89th birthday by winning a reprieve of his ordered deportation to Germany to face possible trial. His son says an immigration judge on Friday issued a stay of a deportation expected during the weekend. Germany says Demjanjuk had been expected by Monday. Demjanjuk had argued that his deportation would amount to torture, given his frail health.
