Roman PolanskiRoman Polanski has broken his silence after months of being under house arrest, saying prosecutors in the United States only want him extradited on a 33-year-old sex case to humiliate him and cause a media circus.

In comments to an online magazine run by one of his supporters, Polanski said: "I can no longer remain silent because the United States continues to demand my extradition more to serve me on a platter to the media of the world than to pronounce a judgment concerning which an agreement was reached 33 years ago."
