This is far from being a done deal.

    Quick update: The Tribune de Genève is reporting that France and Poland will petition the US government directly for Polanski's release. They will ask Hillary Clinton to request a pardon from Obama himself.
    I don't think Obama can pardon Polanski - the President only has the power to pardon people accused of federal crimes. Polanski's charges are state charges, so he can only be pardoned by Schwarzenegger.

    Where will the extradition request be issued, though? Can the state of California issue it? According to what I'm reading the request must be made by the US government.

    They can't get a Federal Pardon because Scum Bucket fled after pleading Guilty.

    Plus I can tell you this it would be political sucide for Mr. Obama to even think about it.

    Also the United State AG has already ask Swiss to Extradac him the moment the Swiss arrest him of the Fugitive Warrent they filed the Extradition Papers.

    Not sure what your side of the World is reporting but most of the US News Outlets are reporting that when Swiss arrest him that US Ag thru the US Embasy in Switzerland filed an official request.

    It doesn't really matter what Poland or France ask since they are both signee of Interpol they must go with what Interpol does and since this was also a Interpol Warrent issued thru the United States they must (Swiss) honor it.

    I believe that the extradition is being requested by the federal government on behalf of the state, but the eventual charges he will face are state charges.

    Alos the United State AG has already ask Swiss to Extradac him the moment the Swiss arrest him of the Fugitive Warrent they filed the Extradition Papers.

    Well, when I read it in one of the serious Swiss papers, I'll believe it. They rarely report anything unless they have their facts straight. Also, you are aware that if the Swiss government does agree to extradite him, Polanski will have the option to appeal the extradition in one or both of the two highest Swiss Courts, right? This is not a done deal at all. It could be months, if not years, before he sets foot on US soil.

    I guess that's what France and Poland are hoping Obama can stop. The actual extradition request. But like Scorpion said, it would probably be politically unwise for the prez to even consider it.

    Well I read it on the following BBC,NBC,CNN,Fox to name a few also The US State Dept. is going to have anew release on Monday.

    As for the appeals by what I have read he gets two and they must happen with-in 60 days of the offical extration request. This is what the Treaty that the USA and Swiss have.

    It's pretty much avery done deal he will never go back to France and his Cushy Life Style trust me on this one. he will end his day in Pelicon Bay with the rest of the Scum. My hop eis that they put him in with some rapist now that would be justice.

    I know what he did was terribly wrong and sick, although there are questions about whether or not he knew she was only 13 years old at the time, but shouldn't the wishes of the only person who really matters here be taken into consideration? Why aren't the victim's wishes respected? She wants the charges dropped.

    This whole case is a mess. A mother who offers her 13 year old daughter to a sleazy older guy, who then proceeds to drug and rape her despite her protests. Even if he thought she was legal he DID force himself on her. A judge who agrees to a plea bargain and then changes his mind, forcing the guy to flea the country. The poor confused girl pleading for the charges to be dropped so she can go on with her life without having to be brought back into the spotlight time and time again.

    Something's got to give here. I mean come on. Leave the woman alone already. She's done with this ****.
    I hope he is extradicted and spends teh rest of his days on earth being raped by huge men with massive engorged members

    So it's okay to take part in the murder of 6 million Jews if you did what after? Watch the Soviet Union kill 20 million more people during the Cold War? I'm calling your sense of morality into serious questioning and your 'moral tradeoff' a complete fallacy.
