Switzerland has decided not to extradite Roman Polanski. “He’s a free man,” said Swiss Justice Minister Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf:
Mr. Polanski’s French lawyer, Georges Kiejman, hailed the Swiss government’s decision for concluding Mr. Polanski’s “long ordeal,” and said he would be able return to his home and family in France.
“I pay tribute to Swiss justice, its judicial analysis is very correct,” Mr. Kiejman told Agence France-Presse.
His nightmare ends: Now he is no longer under house arrest at his Swiss chalet, he is just living at his Swiss chalet, like any normal internationally renowned film director who is not a rapist.
