AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A Dutch court said on Friday it would ask for a ruling from the top European Union court to determine whether it could extradite a Polish suspect.

The International Chamber of Amsterdam's District Court said in a statement it did not believe Polish courts were independent of the government and said it would not extradite a suspect in a drugs case until the Court of Justice of the European Union ruled it should do so.
