Polanski arrives quietly in Gstaad Friday, 4 December, 2009 Oscar-winning film director Roman Polanski arrived in the Swiss resort of Gstaad early this afternoon. He will be under house arrest and restricted to his chalet there. Polanski’s been in Swiss custody since he was arrested on a U.S. warrant on September 26, as he arrived in Zurich to receive a lifetime achievement award at a film festival. He was granted bail last week. WRS’s Conor Lennon speaks to our reporter Vincent Landon, who is in Gstaad this week:
After Polanski, further U.S. arrest warrants to follow? Wednesday, 14 October, 2009 The arrest of film director Roman Polanski has heightened fears about the extradition of Swiss citizens who may have been involved in U.S. tax evasion cases. Top lawyers in Washington say the Department of Justice will certainly have sent new arrest warrants to Interpol, based on recent tax fraud investigations. Daniel Ryntjes has more for WRS.
