In The Polanski Case, A Former Prosecutor’s Testimony Will Remain Sealed

Sealed Testimony by a Former Deputy District Attorney in Roman Polanski sex case will be closed Los Angeles County Superior Court Decided on Tuesday.

Journalists Sam Wasson and William Rempel asked the court to open up Roger Gunson’s testimony, provided years earlier when it appeared that Gunson’s health could preclude his contribution to any legal proceedings involving Polanski. . Many who followed the case believe that Gunson’s statement would confirm that the court and/or prosecutors abused Polanski’s rights during his prosecution. But a Los Angeles court consistently refused to consider Polanski’s status until he ended his fugitive status, which began when he fled the country before serving a sentence.

On Tuesday, the court declined again, according to a person involved in the latest attempt to unmask Gunson testimony.
