Co-producer of "Schindler's List" must serve prison term

A Warsaw court ruled Monday that the co-producer of Oscar-winning "Schindler's List" must immediately start serving his two-year prison term for his role in a bribery scandal that touched the highest levels of government, a court official said.

In December Lew Rywin, 59, was given two years in prison and fined US$31,000 (Ђ24,000) by a panel of three judges on charges of accessory to influence-peddling.

He was to start serving the term Monday, but his lawyers have sought a medical opinion whether he is fit to be in prisons.

"The court rejected Lew Rywin's defense lawyers' motion," said Monika Brzozowska, a spokeswoman for the Warsaw Provincial Court.

"It means Rywin has to report to Warsaw's Rakowiecka prison today before 4 p.m.," she told The Associated Press.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
