Gov. Schwarzenegger: “Roman Polanski Should Be Treated Like Everyone Else..”
California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger says Roman Polanski “should be treated like everyone else.”
Much of Hollywood has rallied around the Oscar-winning Chinatown director in the wake of his arrest in Switzerland on a 32-year-old sex charge last weekend — but The Terminator has vowed not to give Polanski any special treatment.
The lensman, now 76, is fighting extradition to California, where he is wanted for sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl in 1977. He remains in a Switzerland jail.
“It doesn’t matter if you are a big-time movie actor or a big-time movie director or producer… I think he should be treated like everyone else,” Arnold revealed during an interview on CNN’s Situation Room on Thursday. “One should look into all of the allegations, not only his allegations but the allegations about his case. Was there something done wrong? You know, was injustice done in the case?”
