Polanski's Lawyers in US Call for Investigation

Wednesday, 14 Jul 2010 06:47 AM

 

Roman Polanski's lawyers have issued a statement calling for an investigation into the U.S. refusal to provide requested evidence to Swiss authorities in his 33-year-old sex case.

The one-page statement released Tuesday in Los Angeles made no personal reference to Polanski or his reaction to Monday's ruling freeing him from Swiss custody.

It was the first defense comment since the Swiss refused to extradite Polanski to the U.S.

The attorneys asked for the appointment of a commission by the California governor or attorney general to look into possible official misconduct in the 1977 case

They said the Los Angeles County district attorney purposely withheld the material sought because it would have undermined the extradition request. They refused further comment.
