uha ! s-a terminat ! Polanski e liber si se intoarce in Franta ! Pina la urma elvetienii au cedat ! Ma bucur pentru el ! Eram la Brasov cind a inceput, sunt la Brasov acum ! Elvetiia noastra ! Imi pare rau ca nu am cu cine sa sarbatoresc dar o sa beau ce a mai ramas din tzuica 1971de la nunta Doctorului (mai mult spre calvados) !
Roman Polanski is a free man - officials in Switzerland have thrown out a request to extradite him to the U.S. for sentencing on a child-sex charge.
The Rosemary's Baby director has been under house arrest at a luxury chalet in Gstaad since he was seized in Zurich last September en route to a film festival.
U.S. authorities demanded the film-maker be returned to the States to face sentencing for having sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977. He pleaded guilty to the offence but fled to Europe in 1978 before facing a court.
But Swiss officials announced on Monday that the extradition has now been turned down - because they cannot rule out the possibility that there is a "fault" in the request.
In a statement, a spokesman for the Swiss Justice Ministry says, "The reason for the decision lies in the fact that it was not possible to exclude with the necessary certainty a fault in the U.S. extraditionary (sic) request."
Polanski is expected to return to his family home in France.
The Swiss government declared renowned film director Roman Polanski a free man on Monday after rejecting a Us request to extradite him on a charge of having sex in 1977 with a 13-year-old girl," report Bradley S Klapper and Frank Jordans of the AP. "The Swiss mostly blamed Us authorities for failing to provide confidential testimony about Polanski's sentencing procedure in 1977-1978. The Justice Ministry also said that national interests were taken into consideration in the stunning decision."
