More bother in Poland

jta, 12 December 2003

Two young Poles faced libel charges Friday for anti-Semitic remarks against Israel’s ambassador. The Polish PAP news agency reported on the hearing in the eastern Polish city of Bialystok. 

The two men were part of a group that barged into a book-signing by Israel’s ambassador to Poland, Shevach Weiss, in September 2002, yelling “stop Jewish interests” and “ambassador of murderers.” 

A state prosecutor demanded prison terms of one and two years respectively for the suspects. The court is expected to rule on sentencing next Wednesday, the German Press Agency reported. Both suspects have admitted to participating in the incident.
