The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rules that John Demjanjuk can once again be stripped of U.S. citizenship. Federal District Court Paul Matia had already ruled in 1999 in favor of the government on charges that Demjanjuk had worked for the SS in Nazi concentration camps while helping round up millions of Jews in Nazi-occupied Poland.
According to the Court of Appeals, the Justice Department has shown "clear, unequivocal and convincing evidence" that John Demjanjuk served as a guard in several in Nazi death camps: Sobibor, Majdanek, and Flossenburg. This confirmation of Matia's ruling allows the U.S. government to strip Demjanjuk of his citizenship and deport him, which is exactly what will happen in 2009 when he is sent to Germany to stand trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
