A Polish court reduced the sentence of a Polish activist who launched a campaign in 1998 to erect crosses at the site of the Auschwitz death camp. The court upheld the conviction against Kazimerz Switon, but reduced his six-month suspended sentence to a fine. The court then canceled the fine because Switon spent a month in jail in 1999 on unproven charges, said a court spokesman.
