"_Court Convicts Keegstra Again_

	Toronto (JTA)-- A former high school history teacher from the
town of Eckville, Alberta, has been convicted for the second time of
wilfully promoting hatred against Jews.

	Justice Arthur Lutz of the Court of Queen's Bench in nearby
Red Deer fined James Keegstra $3,000 (Canadian) a few hours after a
jury of eight women and four men found him guilty.

	The verdict was the culmination of a four-month retrial in
which 17 former students of Keegstra's testified that from 1978 to
1982, he taught them that an evil worldwide Jewish conspiracy bent on
destroying Christianity existed and that the Holocaust was a hoax."
