1. I am a Swiss citizen, advising members of the Swiss Parliament, notably on matters of Swiss-American relations, with first-hand knowledge of matters related to the sought-after extradition to the United States of Mr.Roland Polanski, and, if called upon to do so, I could and would testify competently thereto under oath.
2. On December 13, I have notified by phone Mr.Polanski personally of the Swiss parliamentary motion 09.4269 and its public accessability at www.solami.com/extraditionstop.htm, as it concerns him directly. I have not been in contact with Mr.Polanski before or after that, and I have neither sought from nor been offered by either him or any of his representatives any solicitation for my services. In the course of drafting said motion, and based on elements detailed in paragraphs 4 and 5 of today's amicus curiae, I have advised Mr.Polanski's Swiss lawyer of the likelihood of a political intervention against the extradition process under way, and I repeatedly but unsuccessfully sought to obtain some technical information from him. After New Year, and with the same objective, I have called on Mr.Polanski's American lead lawyer and am still looking forward to receive the information requested.
I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct
and that this declaration,
the amicus curia and its other exhibits are executed from Switzerland on this January 19, 2010.
