The famous director Roman Polanski has rejected the possibility of his extradition to the United States. This statement was made to the press by his lawyer, reports Reuters. Thus, the defense will insist on considering the extradition case in a Swiss court. Recall that Polanski was detained at the Zurich airport on September 27. The director arrived in the country to take part in a movie festival in which he was to be awarded for his contribution to the development of cinema.
The Swiss authorities acted on the basis of a warrant issued 31 years ago in the United States. The director was then involved in the case of child abuse, but chose to leave the United States without waiting for the final verdict.
