Man Accused of Persecuting Jews

Man Accused of Persecuting Jews The lawyer for a Trenton man who allegedly served with a Nazi-sponsored police unit in World War II says he's sure his client will be vindicated.

But Andrey Zielyk, a Morristown-based lawyer, declined further comment on the charges against 86-year-old Michael Bojcun, saying he hasn't had a chance to read the complaint filed by federal officials.

The Justice Department Wednesday asked a federal court to revoke Bojcun's U.S. citizenship. They say he joined the Ukrainian Auxiliary Police only a few months after Nazi Germany occupied the city of Lviv in 1941.

The city was in Poland at the time and is now in Ukraine.

A woman who answered the phone at Bojcun's home said he wasn't available. She did not identify herself and declined to make other comments.
