SharonA BS: Should Polanski be extradited to the USA (66* d) RE: BS: Should Polanski be extradited to the USA 29 Sep 09

MtheGM: Joe or a JoeClone will probably insert the posts from this thread into the other one eventually. You're right, though, that there was no real need to start this thread, even if it asks a specific question about the subject matter of the other one.

To answer that question: Yes, he should be.

John says: "No doubt he should be extradited, but I am curious, and suspicious, as to why they are only doing it now. From what one reads, he was in places where they could have done this, many times before, why wait till now?"

Because there hadn't been an international warrant for his arrest until 2005 (I don't know the reason for THAT delay), and since then Polanski has evaded authorities. I read a statement this morning from authorities saying that this was the first time since 2005 that they had prior knowledge of when and where Polanski would be, so that they could be there to make the arrest. (He had gone to Switzerland to accept a film award.)
