Film-maker Roman Polanski has been questioned by a Polish prosecutor concerning a US request for his extradition on 1977 sex charges, an official said.

The prosecutor questioned the director late yesterday and is writing a report for the court that will decide whether to extradite Polanski, according to Boguslawa Marcinkowska, spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office in Krakow, southern Poland.

She refused to divulge any details of the questioning.

The Oscar-winning film-maker has Polish and French passports.

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

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