“I can remain silent no longer!” writes Roman Polanski in La Regle du Jeu: he’s kept quiet since his arrest last September in Zurich, but no more. For one thing, February testimony from a deputy D.A. constitutes “a new development of immense significance”; for another, even his victim keeps asking for proceedings to be dropped. Also, “the United States continues to demand my extradition more to serve me on a platter to the media of the world than to pronounce a judgment concerning which an agreement was reached 33 years ago.”
He says he hopes Switzerland will recognize that extradition is unfair. In the meantime, he will remain under house arrest in Gstaad. We await with interest the Swiss response to his non-silence.
