Poland's Supreme Court Tuesday began examining a fresh bid to extradite Oscar-winning director Roman Polanski to the United States, where he faces sentencing over a decades-old case of statutory rape.Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro had appealed to the court in May to overturn a 2015 ruling against extraditing Polanski, saying no one should be above the law.The Supreme Court could reject the appeal, definitively ending Poland's part in the 1977 case that continues in the United States, or could send it back to a lower court.That court could then rule to extradite, but Polish police would only be able to fly Polanski back to the United States if he returned to Poland from France, which does not extradite its citizens.Born in Paris in 1933 to Polish Jewish parents, Polanski moved to Poland with his family before World War II.Polanski now lives in France with his third wife, French actress Emmanuelle Seigner, but he often visits Poland.
