It’s because France has no extradition policy with the U.S. and along with every other country except Canada. Canada is the only country in the world that will extradite someone to the U.S. if they have an arrest warrant. So it’s not a “fuck the U.S.” thing. It’s more like a “the law says he’s fine where he is so that’s where he’ll stay”. The same would go for any Joe Rapeagirl who leaves the U.S.
You should really get your facts straight, Lili.[/quote]
Actually I don’t really get any obsession or interest in such things. But I still know some facts, from personnal experience, the USA has already negociated to get some international prisoners or people are supposed to be under arrest, with France. And if that no extradition policy with the USA is true, it has been broken several times. Especially when it comes to terrorists. So again if the USA really wanted Polanski, they could have negociated. All I’m saying it that, cause he’s famous (and I love lots of his movies as a director), he got some privileges that others haven’t.[/quote]
Terrorists are a different story. They're the new Communists and if you don't give them up then you look like a fucking terrorist yourself. A 40 year old statutory rape case? Not the same as Terrorism, Lili. In the eyes of the law anyway. We're talking about a girl whose mother pushed her into Hollywood circles and told her to tell anyone who asked that she was 18. She wanted money and Roman Polanski was the poor guy who got stuck. The Swiss shouldn't have done this. They can sit out of World Wars and mass genocide but when it comes to arrested elderly men in airports? Well, COME ON DOWWWWWWWWWWN, SWITZERLAND! YOU BIG BRAVE SOANDSOS!
