BERLIN – German prosecutors have accused a 59-year-old man of stealing a number of objects on Monday, including logs from the late Beatle John Lennon.
The defendant, who is called Erhan G., will face an allegation of theft and fraud.
He is accused of receiving money from an auction house in 2014 for items stolen from a flat in New York by Lennon's widow Yoko Ono.
He was arrested in Berlin last year.
Prosecutors then said that he "gave a wide recognition".
In addition to Lennon's diaries, police last year recovered from bankrupt auction offices from the house, postcards, drawings, live recordings of the Beatles concert, and musical glasses.
Buildings should be stolen in 2006 by his driver.
The driver, Koral Karsan, lives in Turkey and the German police could not keep him.
From 1995 to 2006 he worked for She. He spent 60 days in jail in the United States in 2007 because he was trying to extort it.
The prosecutors did not say how Mr. got stolen objects from Karsan.
Together with Paul McCartney, Lennon wrote some of the biggest hits of Fab Four before the band split in 1970.
