Roman Wroclawski needs our help!

Roman Wroclawski needs our help!

Roman Wroclawski is to be turned over to the U.S Marshall’s on 1-16-2013. Roman was the coach for Olympic Gold Medalist Rulon Gardener in 2008. Roman has been seeking Political Asylum from the Polish Government after speaking out against the government in a book. The Polish government in retaliation has filed trumped up charges for white color crimes which in 1997 had a statue of limitations of just 5 years. However, in 2007 they changed it to 25 years while all over statues for murder, robbery, etc. remained the same. It is clear that this communist regime it trying to silence Roman and make an example so that other will not speak out the truth.

Wasn’t America founded against the very oppression. Yet our government stands ready to turn him over. Please read all of the following information including the bottom that outlines Roman’s story line by line and lets get everyone involved!

Here is an article from 2008.

A judge released a top U.S. Olympic wrestling coach from federal custody Thursday so that he could help the team prepare for the Summer Games in Beijing.

Flanked by family and friends, Roman Wroclawski walked out of U.S. District Court in Phoenix after spending seven months in a private prison in Florence, where he had been held at the request of Polish authorities on claims that he falsified loan documents and embezzled money from companies he owned in Poland in the early 1990s.

Magistrate Michelle Burns agreed with Wroclawski’s argument that special circumstances existed for his release pending an extradition hearing later this summer. Those circumstances included testimony that wrestlers and future Olympians needed his expertise at the mat; he was of low flight risk; and the Polish government had yet to explain why it sought extradition more than 11 years after initial charges were filed, when Wroclawski had been living openly in the U.S. since 1993.

An extradition hearing has been set for August. Attorney Michael Reeves said he plans to argue that the statute of limitations has run out for the reputed crimes.

Wroclawski said the charges “don’t make sense” and are political payback for his speaking out against the Polish government.

A native of Poland, Wroclawski won a world championship in Greco-Roman wrestling in 1982. The feat gave him celebrity status and an audience with Pope John Paul II. In the following years, he wrote a book criticizing Poland and the treatment of athletes by East European countries.

Wroclawski was visiting the U.S. on a temporary visa in the mid-1990s when the Polish government charged him with treason. His then-attorney convinced the court that Wroclawski was a victim of political persecution, and he was granted permanent residency.

Wroclawski subsequently became entrenched in wrestling culture in the U.S. and shared his Greco-Roman expertise with promising young athletes. At the 2000 Sydney Olympics, he coached American wrestler Rulon Gardner to gold. It was one of the biggest upsets in Olympic history when Gardner beat undefeated Russian champion Alexander Karelin.

A courtroom of friends and athletes spent Wednesday afternoon trying to convince Burns that Wroclawski is one of several top Greco-Roman coaches in the nation and that time was running out: The Olympic trials for wrestling begin June 14 in Las Vegas.

“Roman has students waiting for him to be released,” Steve Fraser, USA Wrestling head coach, wrote in a letter to Burns. “Our sport will only benefit from Roman’s coaching; it will likely be hampered by his continued incarceration.”

Wroclawski’s absence at the mat in recent months has perhaps been felt most acutely by Jeff Funicello, a Gilbert resident who has trained with him for more than 14 years. Funicello, 37, is set for his fourth, and likely last, Olympic wrestling trial in just over a week.

Wroclawski is on house arrest, but he may attend coaching sessions and travel to the trials and the Olympic training center in Colorado Springs, Colo., as part of his release conditions. He was fitted Thursday with an electronic monitoring bracelet.

Funicello plans to hit the gym today to fine-tune moves with help from Wroclawski. The pair are hopeful for the Games and Wroclawski’s future.

“We won round one; round two is next,” Funicello said.

The alleged crime supposedly took place in 1993, and had a 1969 statute of limitation of 5 years. In 1997 the statute remained 5 years.

This is a political vendetta.

The key to having the US stop the extradition are Polish human rights violations, and the statute of limitations.

Polish statutes are as follows: (Note: nothing changes except for white collar crimes in 2007, which now has a longer statute than 2nd degree murder). Why?

1969:
1st degree murder: 30 years
2nd degree murder: 20 years
manslaughter: 15 years
Robbery: 10 years
White Collar crimes: 5 years

1997:
1st degree murder: 30 years
2nd degree murder: 20 years
manslaughter: 15 years
Robbery: 10 years
White Collar crimes: 5 years

2007:
1st degree murder: 30 years
2nd degree murder: 20 years
manslaughter: 15 years
Robbery: 10 years
White Collar crimes: 25 years
