Switzerland Rejects Roman Polanski Extradition Request by United States

Switzerland has rejected an extradition request by the United States for the film director Roman Polanski, who is charged with having sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977.  The New York Times reports that the Swiss Justice Ministry said that the decision not to extradite was based on national interests and that Mr. Polanski was now a free man.
