Video Image of Roman Polanski To Be Extradited

Posted by a4g @ 7/18/2005 06:52:00 AM

A shocking surprise disrupted a London courtroom on Monday, as British police stormed the chambers and made an unexpected arrest.

Claimant Roman Polanski was using video link technology to testify in London while remaining safely in Paris in his libel case against Vanity Fair, over the magazine's allegations that the director seduced a woman on the way to his murdered wife's funeral in 1968.

But British police were able to seize the video monitor containing the image of Roman Polanski, and are now preparing to extradite it to the United States, from where Polanski fled after pleading guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old girl.

The monitor will soon be on a flight to the US, escorted by armed officers, to begin serving the sentence that Polanski fled in 1977.

"Imagine turning on your computer, and instead of the Carribean island wallpaper you had on your desktop, there's nothing but the cold walls of a prison cell behind your program icons. Well, Polanski's going to be staring at that image for a long time."

It is not known whether the incarceration of Polanksi's image will affect him in other media, such as television or print. As interview requests have poured in, his attorney's have offered no comment.

One thing is for sure, the 13-year-old girl known only as 'CuteMonica' in the 'Horny Teens' chat room on TeenSpot is going to have to find a new 'FranticMan.'

Abusive, hateful or irresponsible comments were probably posted by one of the contributors.
