Roman Polanski should be extradited to the US says new Polish government

Roman Polanski should be deported from Poland to the US to face sentence over a conviction for having sex with a minor in 1977, according to the leader of Poland’s newly elected Law and Justice party.

Jarosław Kaczyński made the case an instrumental part of his campaign during the final stretch before he came to power last weekend. “There was open talk that he should not be made responsible for his deeds because he is an outstanding, world-famous film-maker,” Kaczyński said. “We will totally reject this attitude.”
