The Swiss government freed Academy Award winning director Roman Polanski on June 12 after deciding that the United States failed to provide confidential testimony relating to the charge that he had sex with a minor in 1977.  Probably just as important to this decision is the fact that the then 13-year old girl has refused to testify, saying that this event was in the past and she doesn't want to pursue the case.  This will probably kill the United States' efforts to have Polanski extradited to America to face this charge.  The director fled America on the eve of his Feb. 1, 1978 sentencing, traveling to France, where he has spent most of his time since, based on his dual citizenship there and in Poland.  France doesn't extradite its own citizens.
