What does the victim think?
It is the only issue that matters here.
You people write as if he raped you. A hypocritical stance.
If the victim has pardoned, then Polanski is pardoned already and he is entitled his freedom.
You do not know a thing about the history of Polanski.
It's not the only thing that matters. Polanski's victim gave statements. Even without her to testify I'm certain a prosecutor can get those into evidence.
This woman had to have some amount of closure and move on from this rape in her own way. I can understand her reluctance to bring the issue up again. This is even more reason for Polanski to face justice. He denied his victim this right 30 years ago, forcing her to have to "get closure" from this rape on her own and without vindication. Now that she has done that - good for her and her peace of mind.
That doesn't change the fact that Polanski has not answered to his crime. Justice has nothing to do with forgiveness. Forgiveness is the victim's prerogative to give or not. He may be shown mercy (or not) from the court but he still has to answer to it.
