SUBJECT: RATIFICATION OF US-EU EXTRADITION AND MUTUAL LEGAL
ASSISTANCE AGREEMENT

REF: SECSTATE 104974

1. (SBU) DCM and Legatt delivered reftel demarche to Lukasz
Redziniak, Under Secretary of State at the Ministry of
Justice (MOJ) October 3.

2. (SBU) DCM took the opportunity to raise our
disappointment in the outcome of a Polish court case
involving Randy Craig Levine, who allegedly committed fraud
in the United States and acquired Polish citizenship to avoid
extradition to the United States. A Polish court recently
rejected a U.S. extradition request on the basis of Levine's
newly acquired Polish citizenship, despite the existence of a
2006 Polish constitutional amendment that appears to enable
such extraditions. Redziniak expressed MOJ frustration with
the judge's decision and said that the Polish government
plans to appeal the case to the Supreme court, for which the
DCM expressed appreciation.
