Roman Polanski Thanks His Allies
The 76-year-old wants backers to know he appreciates their ongoing support.
This week fallen film director Roman Polanski issued a statement to French author Bernard-Henri Levy, which was quickly passed to the Huffington Post, expressing his appreciation for those who have shown him support.
The letter marks the first time Polanski has spoken out since the September arrest.
“These messages have come from my neighbours, from people all over Switzerland, and from beyond Switzerland – from across the world,” he stated. “I would like every one of them to know how heartening it is, when one is locked up in a cell, to hear this murmur of human voices and of solidarity in the morning mail. In the darkest moments, each of their notes has been a source of comfort and hope, and they continue to be so in my current situation.”
Polanski is currently on house arrest in Switzerland for raping a 13-year-old in 1977. It is still unclear if he will be extradited to America. (Yahoo)
