TruTV this morning was discussing the fact that Switzerland was refusing the extradition to the United States. They are basing that refusal on the fact that the United States has failed to provide them with a confidential legal document.
Uncharacteristically, the Swiss are more interested in whether or not the 42 days Roman Polanski spent in a county jail (of a 90 day sentence) undergoing psychiatric evaluation constitutes the entire sentence of incarceration, rather than be concerned that he drugged and raped a 13 year old girl.
Polanski fleed the United States before sentencing after he learned that the judge might not accept the 90 day sentence worked out in the plea bargain.
Some details of the news story are here:http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/roman-polanski-freed-swiss/story?id=11143629
However, just because the Swiss are refusing to extradite Polanski to the United States does not mean he is "free."
Should Roman Polanski venture into a country other than France or Switzerland he will be subjected to extradition.
