Polish man who burned Jew effigy suing local Jews for calling him an anti-Semite

A Polish man sentenced to prison for burning an effigy of an ultra-Orthodox Jew says he will sue the leaders of the Wroclaw Jewish community for publicly naming him an anti-Semite.

Piotr Rybak burned an effigy of a ultra-Orthodox Jew during a demonstration in 2015 in Wroclaw against accepting refugees in Poland.

The original Wroclaw court sentenced him to 10 months in prison. An appeals court reduced the sentence to three months.
