Polanski lawyer submits new bail offer to Swiss

Recent Outbreaks Posted on

A French lawyer for Roman Polanski says he has submitted a new bail offer to a Swiss court to try to free the filmmaker from jail.

Lawyer Herve Temime says the offer Monday includes "adequate guarantees" that Polanski will not flee justice if released. The 76-year-old director is awaiting a decision on extradition to the United States.

Switzerland's Justice Ministry rejected a bail offer Friday, considering Polanski a high flight risk. They noted it was not a cash offer.

Temime said Sunday the new offer would include a "very, very significant" cash amount, but on Monday, he gave no further details.

Polanski, arrested Sept. 26, is wanted in the U.S. for having sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977. Polanski fled the U.S. before sentencing.
