Former President Pieter W. Botha was convicted Friday of ignoring a subpoena to testify about apartheid atrocities. A black magistrate gave apartheid's last hard-line president a one-year suspended jail sentence and ordered him to pay a $1,577 fine for ignoring the summons from South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Magistrate Victor Lugaju could have sentenced the 82-year-old Botha to two years in prison but said he took into account Botha's age and frail health.
