Prosecutor Probes Roman Polanski on US Extradition Motion

Thursday, 15 January 2015 06:44 AM

 An official says filmmaker Roman Polanski has been questioned by a prosecutor concerning a U.S. request for his extradition on 1977 sex charges.

Boguslawa Marcinkowska, spokeswoman for the prosecutor's office in Krakow, southern Poland, said Thursday the prosecutor questioned the director late Wednesday and is writing a report for the court that will decide whether to extradite Polanski. She refused to divulge any details of the questioning. The Oscar-winning filmmaker has Polish and French passports.

Last year, Krakow prosecutors refused a U.S. request to arrest Polanski, 81, but obliged him to be available on summons. The extradition request came this year.

Marcinkowska said the prosecutor may either give reasons why the extradition is not possible, or may say that it can be carried out.
