CLEVELAND (AP) — The defense for an Ohio man convicted in Germany of Nazi war crimes says hundreds of pages of newly released documents cast doubt on the U.S. effort to revoke his American citizenship.Attorneys for 91-year-old John Demjanjuk (dem-YAHN'-yuk) renewed their request Tuesday for a court hearing on whether Demjanjuk should regain his U.S. citizenship.Last month prosecutors said the retired autoworker was trying to cast himself as a victim following his conviction in Germany on more than 28,000 counts of accessory to murder.His attorneys charge that the government failed to disclose important evidence, namely a 1985 secret FBI report uncovered by The Associated Press. It indicates the FBI believed a Nazi ID card purportedly showing that Demjanjuk served as a death camp guard was a Soviet-made fake.
