Polanski Extradition Update – Roman Polanski is Free

Roman Polanski is now free. In this recent development of the Polanski extradition case, the Swiss government declared the renowned film director a free man on Monday after rejecting a U.S. request to extradite him on a charge of having sex in 1977 with a 13-year-old girl.

The Swiss mostly blamed U.S. authorities for failing to provide confidential testimony about Polanski’s sentencing procedure in 1977-1978.
