I have just noticed some news about Roman Polański – a famous Polish film director – and his infamous rape case. In 1977, after a photo shoot in Los Angeles, Polański was arrested for the sexual assault of a 13 year old girl, he later pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor. To avoid sentencing, Polanski fled to his home in London, but quickly moved on to France the following day, and has had a U.S. arrest warrant outstanding since then, and an international arrest warrant since 2005. Polański avoided visits to countries that were likely to extradite him to the United States. In September 2009 Polanski was arrested by Swiss police, at the request of U.S. authorities, when he traveled to receive a lifetime achievement award at the Zurich Film Festival. The United States formally requested his extradition on 23 October 2009. On July 12, 2010, the Swiss authorities announced that they would not extradite Polański to the USA after they judged the American request for extradition was faulty. The Justice minister Eveline Widmer-Stumpt freed him from house arrest and told a press conference, “He is a free man.”
