Polanski goes free

Polanski was arrested while in Switzerland at the request of United States authorities. The Swiss, however, rejected the United States' request, declared Polanski a "free man" and released him from custody. He remains the subject of an Interpol red notice issued in 2005 at the request of the United States.
