Polish court dismisses Polanski extradition request made by U.S.

A Polish court dismissed the United States extradition request of film director Roman Polański (82) on Friday. The extradition request was made over a 1977 conviction for having sex with minor. The court said his extradition was “inadmissible”.

Polanski has lived in Poland and France for the past five years, following a rejected extradition request by the U.S. to Switzerland. Political party Law and Justice, which won Sunday’s parliamentary elections, strongly oppose the ruling.
