AgeofConsent

Achei uma matéria que é, talvez, a melhor defesa do Polanski que já vi até agora:

Were Polanski to have consensual sex today with a 13-year-old girl in the modern, democratic, industrialized nations of Japan, South Korea, or Spain, it would be perfectly legal according to those countries’ codes. In more than 30 other countries, including Austria, Italy, and Lichtenstein, the age of consent is 14 (in many cases even younger if both partners are close in age). In France, where Polanski has lived since his conviction and where newspapers and even government officials have defended the director against the “sinister” motivations of American prosecutors, it is 15. Even Americans don’t agree on the question. In 27 states, it is legal for an adult of any age to have sex with a 16-year-old, while the rest place the legal age at 17 or 18.”

É um argumento, mas apela para noções de extraterritorialidade.  Nesse particular, continuo achando que Polanski deve encarar seu julgamento, uma vez que a lei da terra é a lei da terra, uai.

No entanto não deixa de ser interessante ver quais países compartilham o amarelinho ali no mapa.  Quem diria.
