Polanski Will Not Be Extradited!

So much for being a neutral country, Switzerland!

This morning, Swiss officials announced that Roman Polanski won't be extradited to the United States to face the child sex charges against him.

The decision, according to the Swiss, was made after months of waiting for the U.S. to provide a confidential testimony in the case from 1977-1978. The U.S. rejected this request and now the Swiss are calling Roman a free man. This could be the potential end to the U.S.' three-decade pursuit of Roman, and if he travels back to France, he is safe under their citizen laws and now, with all the trouble over Switzerland's deliberations it's unlikely any other country is going to go after him.

And so another child sex offender walks around free in the world. Amazing what dirty politics (and we'd wager a hefty bribe to the Switzerland government) can do!

Way to go, Swiss!

    this FUCKING disgusts me.



  2. 2

    You got some proof about that bribe asshole? Maybe America doesn't have the influence it thinks it does with the rest of the world.



  3. 3

    You have repeatedly tried and convicted this man without providing the facts of the case, which would sway many otherwise if they knew them. There is much more to this than what you are portraying it to be.



  4. 4

    Wow. :(



  5. 5

    Perez, without knowing anything about the law or international politics, your remarks are incendiary and irresponsible! Why is it that everything has to be done the American way or no way at all? Your comment is really out of place!



  6. 6

    as a swiss citizen, I can tell you don't know the first thing about our politics nor our judicial system, so… if I were you, I'd zip it.

    xoxo



  7. 7

    Dear Perez, what do you want?
    A sovereign Ministry of Justice decided legally to release him.
    Do you want to be the judge and the prosecutor?



  8. 8

    The Swiss neutral? Which Swiss, the one that make the chocolate or the ones that hid the Nazi's gold?.. They r a bunch of moons, send Dog the Bounty Hunter after his ass…redstatereport.(om



  9. 9

    I can promise you that the Swiss Government doesnt need Polanksi's money.



  10. 10

    Umm.. what the fuck has this to do with Switzerland's neutrality? How does this make Switzerland unneutral? It's quite the contrary. Stop commenting on international politics when you clearly have no idea about it. The Swiss are an independent nation and the U.S. should respect that. Furthermore, the Americans have no right to complain anyway, as they failed to meet the Swiss' request.



  11. 11

    But it wasn't "rape, rape". Whoopi told us so.



  12. 12

    What you know about the situation could be written on 1/1000th of a pin head, you ignorant ass. You're as stupid as you are useless.



  13. 13

    PEREZ!!!! There was a brief moment some time ago when I thought your latino roots made you a bit more open and smarter…. GUESS I WAS WRONG!! Don't comment on things you have no clue of!! How's Lindsay???



  14. 14

    I visit perezehilton because I like getting my celebrity news late. Thank you, Mario, you never disappoint.



  15. 15

    They let pedophile free in this country all the fucking time, free to rape and kill kids even after the first offense.

    PS; I think the girl who did have sex with him wanted sex as well, she wanted to be famous and I blame her parents as well.



  16. 16

    That's why Switzerland IS a neutral country, dumbass. They don't interfere in other country's politics. I found it weird that they even arrested Polanski at all. And the US didn't provide the confidential testimony, so go fuck yourself. HAHA!



  17. 17

    This must be good news for you Mario Pedio!



  18. 18

    Way to go, Switzerland! YOU keep him and let him rape YOUR children.



  19. 19

    You clearly have no clue.
    The main reason why the Swiss judge made this decision is because Polanski has been spending some time in Switzerland (where he owns a house) on numerous occasions over the past decades, and despite that, the U.S justice never bothered to arrest him.



  20. 20

    Whatever. If the U.S. don't want to cooperate they shouldn't expect the Swiss to just extradit the guy. And as for someone who has probably never been to Switzerland you shouldn't spread lies about its government.



  21. 21

    The victim, who is now middle-aged, said herself that she wants the charges dropped because she doesn't want to relive it all again and she just wants to go on living her life. Why is that so bad? If the victim wants it all to stop, then that's what should happen. Who cares what you think Mario, YOU should be charged as a child sex offender for the way you disgustingly lust over teenage Justin Beiber you sick perv!



  22. 22

    Uh, blaming the Swiss??? Blame the US justice system for refusing to provide the necessary documents as your article stated. Only Americans think that even if they don't play ball with you, you'll have to play ball with them. Well…balls!



  23. 23

    Maybe, after what was given to the Swiss, they didn't see cause. What info in this case were you privvy to, that the Swiss overlooked?

    Go back to your pedo fantasies.



  24. 24

    I guess it did not take my comments earlier.

    Anyways, I feel like this is a "glass house" issue, since Perez himself was recently looking at possible prison time for a "sex crime" himself over that Miley Cyrus picture fiasco. So is this some kind of diversion tactic? C'mon Perez. The fact is, Polanski's victim did not want to prosecute, and we ignored her. We ignore victims in the name of justice. Truth about sex offenders and the laws governing them can be found at Once Fallen, and Perez, you may need a visit to it if the cops decide to charge you over that Miley Cyrus thing.



  25. 25

    I'm sorry but this is a 30 year old case that even the alleged victim said should be dropped. I think it's time to just let it go. You've had a lot of success with this site as well as CocoPerez- if you are so passionate about "injustice" in the world, you should start a different site for that. This story and outrage is completely out of place on this site.



  26. 26

    You can't blame a victim for a rape! There are a lot of different factors in the case like dirty politics on the part of American officials in the original case, they are the ones to blame guys. Even if you say "she wanted it"…she was what, 13 years old? That's far too young to legally consent. No matter what she did or said, this was statutory rape.

    foolish perez, while it is wrong that this man walks free, try not to comment on international political issues of which you know nothing about, have zero understanding of, and apparently did not inform yourself on the entire issue and the legalities involved. Leave that to another legitimate new source such as CNN, hahaha.



  28. 28

    creep



  29. 29

    Hey fruitcup. You're just pissed that he had hetero sex. If he banged a boy you'd be screaming about what a swell ass player he is.



  30. 30

    Clear case of Judge misconduct and conspiring to send Polanski to jail despite an agreed agreement for a 90 day observation (which Polanski did in State Prison!),
    followed by an impartial decision on the facts. Very common for State Prosecutors and State Judges to conspire/trick/fxxk people. The reason they wouldn't provide the info - it would implicate prosecutor and judge in conspiring to send him to jail. Personally the person going to jail should be the current prosecutor who is now apart of this. It doesn't excuse Polanski - but this is both political and criminal.

    31

    STFU already, Perez. You don't know a thing about politics, law, or this particular case. Don't embarass yourself anymore and go back to stelaing frivolous "gossip" off of other sites.



  32. 32

    Absolutely disgusting.



  33. 33

    Re: JasonDiggy

    Perez couldn't possibly blame the US then he'd be blaming Obama!! His God!!!



  34. 34

    There is such thing as a Statue of Limitations…maybe the US should look into it. Child molestation, sex abuse..ect has a 5 yr statue of limitations. This happened over 30 yrs ago…everybody has moved on.



  35. 35

    and if it was one of us, we'd be extradited. this world is so screwy it makes me happy to be a nobody in the middle of no where, atleast i'm happy.



  36. 36

    "And so another child sex offender walks around free in the world" says the man who posts scandalous pictures of Miley Cirus ?
    Pathetic uneducated POC, keep on licking Gaga's boots and forget about things too complicated for you



  37. 37

    This happened more than 30 years ago. Get over it! The guy already survived the holocaust and the murder of his pregnant wife. He seems to have been punished enough.



  38. 38

    oh thank god, now we can get some fucking PEACE !!!! the victom got what she wanted and all I can say for him is, now make a fucking block buster !!!!!



  39. 39

    Forget about it Jake, it's Switzerland.



  40. 40

    THIS MADE MY DAY, B R A V O ! ! ! This should shut up all the haters who are always ready for a good lynching even of innocent people. Congratulations Mr. Polanski and Switzerland. What a wonderful country, I wish I could live there.



  41. 41

    Since the USA tortures & its jails/prison violate every civilized law in the world against crimes against humanity, this was a correct decision.



  42. 42

    Mario is an IDIOT!



  43. 43

    This guy is a total coward and a disgusting Pedophile. It's no secret that he likes very young girls (younger than 15) - and this is not his only rape victim.



  44. 44

    This monster drugged and had sex with a minor. Then he bragged about it, claiming he just did what every man wants to do. I'm proud that our system of justice considers this to be a crime. I'm disgusted by anyone who claims that Europeans are more sophisticated than we are because they don't think this was a horrific act.



  45. 45

    What do you expect from Nazi Germany's banker?



  46. 46

    Re: PornStarDancing – Maybe you should look into it! There is NO Statute of Limitations on a person who pled GUILTY and fled before sentencing.

    We need to send a rendition team after him. We know where he is, and where, and when, to get him. Enough with involving foreign governments, with secret agendas, in this matter. America needs to send in a stealth commando team to kidnap Polanski and bring him back to the our territory to stand trial for his crimes. Forget the Europeans, they know that he is guilty, and after their collectively voiced upset, which is sure to come, they'll get over it, and they will be made to respect the USA for taking such a bold action!!! Further, we need to ban Polanski's movies, past, present, and future from being released in the USA and discourage film companies from doing business with him.



  48. 48

    Apparently it's ok to drug and rape 13 year olds in Switzerland. F the Swiss!



  49. 49

    The US government has known for years that Polanski resided in Switzerland and only now decided to act on it, even with his victim asking to put this case to rest.

    Too little, too late. The Swiss have every right to do this. And it's quite the statement to accuse them of being bribed - completely out of line.



  50. 50

    Re: Ryuhei – Polanski does not reside in Switzerland. He lives in France. Don't you remember all of the nice French people supporting him because he's an "Artistic Genius"? Now that they're getting him back, they better look after their own 13 year olds!

    Re: gimlet123
    knowing the facts? the facts are he was convicted of it dude, hes guilty under the law…what more evidence do you need.
    BTW, PEREZ, YOU SHOULD MOVE TO SWITZERLAND…YOU CAN BE FREE TO BE A PEDO THERE

  52. adt says – reply to this


    52

    Oh, please, Perez. Like you know anything about politics and the government. Let alone Switzerland's government. Switzerland waited around for nine months for information about the case, they can't do anything without it. It's not Switzerland's fault, you stupid piece of shit. Shut the fuck up and die, Perez.



  53. 53

    funny thing is…if the real perez was the one who posted this, it would have been a bit more accurate.

    so, to the person who did post this: you obviously know NOTHING about the swiss government which makes your post sound ignorant as fuck. try doing a bit more "fact checking" before posting your subjective bullshit on perez's website. you make him look bad.



  54. 54

    Well done on this time insulting an entire country. I don't know how it works in the US, but the Swiss government doesn't fucking take bribes. You can shove your racist comments up your ass.



  55. 55

    I swear that in the late eighties, I stood next to him having a drink in Puerto Banus, he isn't very tall and he was wearing the same Cartier watch as mine but his was solid gold, mine wasn't.

    Re: Ü!!!SEMICOLON!!!bergeist – Switzerland was not a neutral county during WWII, they assisted the Nazis. And the Swiss banks lost the lawsuit against them in 2000 on dormant bank accounts. Not so squeaky clean!



  58. 58

    Well this just goes to show that those white Europeans love the little kids(not surprising), dont they? WOW! Sick motherfuckers! Well look at the Pope and his gang of PEDO's. From now on the eurotrash should be called the EUROPEDO'S! And I wonder how much money the Sissy's did get from this deal? You know it's the truth motherfuckers.



  59. 59

    Re: Zip – WOW ! Heavy stuff, you must be a parano. Or you work for the MOSSAD maybe. Surprise: Mr. Polanski is jewish, you won't get any support from the MOSSAD. Shut up and look in your own backyard, are you sure you never did anything against the law, do you pay your taxes, etc. Leave Mr. Polanski alone you envious nothing.



  60. 60

    Re: canadaeurotrash – Your comments stink, every Canadian should be ashamed because of you. Is that the way people talk in Canada ? Go to finishing school in Switzerland, this should polish your manners and refine your language.



  61. 61

    Re: olebrumm
    I agree with you about the whole American Ego trip we have going on BUT…
    this site is an entertainment site and comments are made just for fun. I would just take anything said here with a pinch of salt. It's all just for fun!



  62. 62

    Re: gimlet123 – I am sorry- but are you in possesion of all of the facts? This man was tried- and ran. That in and of itself does not mean someone is guilty- but the unwavering evidence (even after all of these years) does prove that he was. And subsequently, a high-profile has come forward that she had been sexually harassed by Polanski when she was younger as well. Polanski ran. This means that the situation had not been resolved, and however the trial MAY have ended- he broke the law by running. If he wants to live in this country he must abide by the laws-same as everyone else. Should he break these laws then he is responsible for making restitution.PERIOD. It shouldn't/ doesn't matter if someone is famous.



  63. 63

    Re: Maggielii6 – He pled guilty. He admitted guilt. The case was not unresolved, Polanski fled before sentencing.



  64. 64

    disgusting



  65. 65

    "Die Gründe für die Ablehnung der Auslieferung haben aber NICHTS MIT DEM SACHVERHALT zu tun, sondern mit einem MANGEL IM AUSLIEFERUNGSGESUCH DER USA"



  66. 66

    Dosh BAG so you know for a fact he did there things?????
    Or are you just saying he did cause others are saying it and they no for a fact?



  67. 67

    do you know what neutral means perez? this is the most neutral move they could make.



  68. 68

    he is a motherfucker!!!! hate hate hate him!!! somebody throw his 100 year old disgusting ass in jail!!!



  69. 69

    And you didn't get jailed for distributing child pornography so shut the fuck up, Porky the Pedo.

    Gross, money speaks louder than justice. This man deserves to be behind bars.



  72. 72

    Re: PornStarDancing – WRONG! Learn something about the law in the US before you comment. Roman Polanski pled guilty, so the trial was over, he fled prior to sentencing. There is NO statute of limitations applied to him or his crime since he was convicted. Polanski IS still considered a fugitive in the US.

  73. @v@ says – reply to this


    73

    Why didn't the U.S. provide the confidential testimony? Don't blame the Swiss.
    The Swiss obviously wanted to make a fair decision regarding extradition. What was in that testimony?

  74. @v@ says – reply to this


    74

    Re: LazaroSi3333 – CanadaEurotrash is an American who is insulting Canadians AND Europeans at the same time. Reread his handle. Your manners aren't the best, see your comment #59.



  75. 75

    Re: @v@ – The Swiss sought confidential testimony given by the original prosecutor in the case. Polanski's current lawyer(Temine) claims that a deal was struck when his client pled guilty, that included no jail time, that his time in a Psych unit constituted time served. Temine was the person who some believe triggered Polanski's arrest in S when he claimed publicly that the US wasn't really trying to hunt Polanski down. But whatever Polanski was assured of in his deal, fleeing makes him a fugitive.



  76. 76

    Re: Indigo – Get over it..if im wrong on that fact fine. it was 30 yrs ago!! the victim even wants it dropped..are there not more important things to worry about these days then a 30 yr old case where none was really hurt? im sick of you Mother Theresa's who are just out to point fingers
