PARIS (Reuters) - French police on Friday fired tear gas outside a movie awards venue in Paris in a clash with people protesting against director Roman Polanski, Reuters witness reported.
Polanski’s latest movie “An Officer and a Spy” is competing for 12 Cesar awards. He admitted to having sex with a 13-year-old in 1977 and fled the United States before sentencing.
