re: A334139 (Polanski v. LA Sup.Court)

Your Honor,

    This is to present my compliments and to respectfully submit to your benevolent consideration our amicus curiae brief in the Polanski case which is currently before your Court.

    We are not a party to this case but have information which we feel might be of assistance to the Court. Thus, while we are not very familiar with either the general or the specific Court procedures, we may avail ourselves of the Court's understanding & good disposition for admitting our brief and, in the event, for advising and inviting us to make the necessary corrections and/or to render our personal testimony.

    We take this opportunity to extend to Your Honor the assurance of our highest consideration, and remain, sincerely yours,

Anton Keller, Secretary
Swiss Investors Protection Association
