Courtroom disruption

Court guards lead former lawmaker and anti-communist activist Adam Slomka from a courtroom in Warsaw where his unruly behavior delayed the reading of a verdict on communist-era interior minister, Gen. Czeslaw Kiszczak, who was handed a two-year suspended prison term for his role in implementing the 1981 martial law in Poland. Three decades after the brutal 1981 crackdown on Poland's freedom-seeking Solidarity movement, a Warsaw court found one of its masterminds guilty of "communist crimes" but acquitted another Thursday. The principal suspect originally accused in the trial, Poland's communist-era dictator General Wojciech Jaruzelski, now 88 and suffering from cancer, was earlier exempted from it on medical grounds.
