Former Dior designer John Galliano has been found GUILTY of making anti-Semitic and racist comments in Paris ... on TWO separate occasions.
The court imposed a suspended fine of 6,000 euros -- with the condition that he must stay out of trouble for the next 5 years. Galliano was also ordered to pay one euro to one of his victims as a "symbolic" act.
Galliano -- who has famously designed dresses for Kate Moss and other big stars -- ran his disgusting mouth at two people at a cafe back in Feb. ... and then spewed even more hatred again in October.
Neither case was related to the famous video of Galliano -- which showed the designer professing his love for Hitler at another cafe in Paris.
After the hearing Galliano's lawyer called the ruling a "wise decision" and said Galliano is now "very relieved."
