Re: Shame on the Swiss

I am not going to debate on the gravity of what happened in 1978 or on Roman Polanski being guilty or not guilty.
All I want to say is that it would not make sense to send Mr. Polanski to prison now after all these years.
If laws are so inflexible that when one is charged for a crime he doesn't get punished if he leaves the country where that crime was committed, this is what should be under discussion.
The film director left the United States and lived the rest of his life in Europe as a free man. Then he makes a trip to Switzerland and gets arrested for something he did more than 30 years earlier: ridiculous.
I really don't think it is a case of "better late than never".
I am glad he is free.
