Swiss naked hiker’s appeal upheld

| 28/05/2010

(BBC): A court in Switzerland has upheld the appeal of a man who was fined for rambling naked.  The court in Trogen ruled that the naked hiking did not amount to "indecent behaviour". A prosecutor was quoted as saying the ruling should not be seen as giving blanket permission for people to walk naked in the area. The case was the first since the eastern Swiss canton of Appenzell allowed naked hikers to be fined. Appenzell has become a popular destination for those who like to hike without clothes, but many locals are unhappy about the trend.
