A Swiss judge ruled today that no new evidence will be allowed to be introduced in the extradition process of Roman Polanski to the United States. Polanski's lawyers had tried to get a US judge to unseal some of the documents from the trial, but were denied. The Swiss judge said that even if the documents were unsealed it doesn't matter.
He told the Associated Press, "Such documents are irrelevant for the extradition proceedings. (Countries that have signed mutual extradition treaties) have to work on the assumption that the facts in the extradition request are represented correctly."
Because Polanski's appeal in the US was denied, it now clears the way for the Swiss to rule on the extradition. That decision is expected sometime in the next month.
