Breaking News - Roman Polanski Free, Escapes Extradition

Posted on Mon Jul 12, 2010 07:17 AM PDT

A spokesperson for the Swiss Justice Ministry said: "The reason for the decision lies in the fact that it was not possible to exclude with the necessary certainty a fault in the US extraditionary request."

Polanski has been under house arrest at his vacation home in Gstaad since he was arrested last September en route to a film festival in Switzerland.

The director is expected to now return to his family in France.

Was justice served?
