Roman Polanski extradition decision to be announced soon Will Swiss officials extradite film director Roman Polanski to the U.S.?

The decision is bound to come soon.

Digital Spy and other media outlets report that Swiss Justice Ministry announced that “it won’t be long.”

For the last seven months, the Oscar-winning director of “The Pianist” has been under house arrest at his Swiss chalet in Gstaad after paying $4.5 million in bail following his September 2009 arrest.

The 76-year old Polanski fled the U.S. in 1978 on charges of having unlawful sex with an underage girl. Since that time, he has lived in Paris.

In recent months, a second woman has come forward accusing the director of sexual abuse when she was 16 years of age.

    I’m offering an 11th hour compromise. How about the Swiss agree to honor their treaty obligations and send Polanski back. But we refuse to take him because we have strict laws against importing foreign insect pests.
