Polish court delays Polanski extradition ruling

Oscar-winning director Roman Polanski testified for nine hours at a closed door hearing in a court in Cracow, Poland on February 25 2015 in connection with a US request for his extradition over a 1977 conviction for having sex with a minor.

Dariusz Mazur, the judge presiding over the case, said the court could not make a decision on the extradition request Wednesday because it still had to study extra evidence submitted by Polanski’s lawyers from a 2010 case in Switzerland which received a similar US extradition demand.

A further hearing has been scheduled for April.
