Polanski: Will Attend Court Hearing in Poland about Etradition

Roman Polanski has agreed to attend a court hearing in Poland next week where a U.S. request for his extradition will be considered, according to Reuters.

“In line with the declaration that was made before, Mr Roman Polanski will appear in the court,” Jan Olszewski, one of Polanski’s lawyers, said.

The hearing, which will be held in Krakow on February 25, relates to Polanski’s conviction in 1977 for having unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl.

If the court rules in favor of the U.S. request, the justice minister will then decide whether to approve it.

Polanski, who holds dual French and Polish citizenship, is preparing to shoot a film in Poland about the Dreyfus Affair in France.
