Poland restarts procedure to extradite Polanski to US: minister

Warsaw (AFP) –


Poland on Tuesday relaunched a procedure to extradite Oscar-winning director Roman Polanski to the United States to face sentencing for a 1977 case of statutory rape.

Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro told Polish public radio that he would appeal to the Supreme Court to overturn a previous decision that Polanski should not face extradition.
