Polish Court Refuses to Arrest Chechen Separatist Leader

A court in Warsaw rejected a request from the prosecutor's office to arrest Chechen separatist leader, Akhmed Zakayev.   Zakayev arrived in Poland from the UK to participate in the World Chechen Congress.  The prosecutor's request was made on behalf of Russia, who accuses Zakayev of terrorism and seeks his extradition. The court grounded its refusal to arrest Zakayev on his refugee status in the UK.
