The United States cannot appeal Switzerland's decision to deny its request for the extradition of film-maker Roman Polanski over a child sex case dating back to 1977, the justice minister said Monday.

"The United States cannot contest the decision in Switzerland," said Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf, adding that Washington "has accepted" Bern's move to turn down its extradition request.
