FILE - In this Sept. 12, 2016 file photo Hubert Zafke sits in a courtroom ahead of his trial in Neubrandenburg, eastern Germany. A German court has removed three judges over bias in the often-delayed trial of a former SS medic who served at the Auschwitz death camp. The German news agency dpa reported Saturday June 24, 2017  that the Neubrandenburg state court appointed three new judges on Friday. Prosecutor had filed the complaints after the original judges ruled 96-year-old Hubert Zafke unfit and repeatedly postponed the trial. Zafke is charged with 3,681 counts of accessory to murder for allegedly helping the Auschwitz death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland function, but his attorney says he did nothing criminal.
