Reuters: Polish prosecutors send request to extradite Polanski to court

In Polish News

(Reuters) – Polish prosecutors have sent a request to a regional court in Krakow for the extradition of filmmaker Roman Polanski to the United States over a 1977 child sex-crime conviction, the Prosecutors’ Office in Krakow said on Tuesday.

“The further actions in this case will depend on the court,” the prosecutors’ office said in a statement.

According to Polish law, if the court decides that the U.S. request should proceed further, the justice minister will then make the decision on whether to extradite Polanski.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker pleaded guilty in 1977 to having unlawful sex with 13-year-old Samantha Geimer during a photoshoot in Los Angeles fueled by champagne and drugs.
