Polish MPs have passed legislation making it obligatory to chemically castrate certain sex offenders.This Week:
Under the law anyone found guilty of raping children under 15, or close relatives, will be given drugs to lower their sex drive.
They were part of a bill that also increases jail terms for incest and paedophilia, and criminalises any attempt to justify paedophilia.
Oscar-winning director Andrzej Wajda and other Polish filmmakers appealed Monday to U.S. and Swiss authorities to free Roman Polanski, decrying his arrest as a "provocation."
Their appeal came as the Polish and French governments wrote to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and called up Swiss Foreign Minister Micheline Calmy-Rey about the case.
