a year later the us authorities ordered his deportation. until now germany had refused to accept him on the grounds that he isn't a german and also because german investigators say the evidence against him is inconclusive. but the u.s. ambassador diplomatic rather than legal grounds the german government has now accepted that argument. we are all joining me right here on the set as did every reporter. who has covered this story extensively for us so you even i mean that went to his house in new york to talk about that in just a sec but first i want you to address what will happen to the next and now that he's arrived in germany that's right you landed this morning in dusseldorf he's an old man he was taken to a nursing home actually in the area around munster. and it's unclear what's going to happen next because it's unclear whether or not he can be put on trial at this
