FILM director Roman Polanski agreed to pay a 13-year-old girl $500,000, it has emerged. Polanski, who was detained in Switzerland this week, made the offer to Samantha Geimer in 1993, 15 years after he had illegal relations with her. Court records do not say whether the Oscar-winning director actually paid the full amount. The terms of the settlement were confidential, but the amount was disclosed in court documents because of a two-year struggle to get Polanski to pay. The court records were released in Los Angeles but the final one from August 1996 showed Polanski still owed 378,000. Polanski was arrested last Saturday on a US warrant by authorities in Zurich, where he was set to receive a lifetime achievement award at the Zurich Film Festival. The director had fled from the US in 1978 before being sentenced for having immoral relations with the teenager. He was accused of plying his young victim with alcohol and drugs during a modelling shoot. Ms Geimer sued Polanski in December 1988 when she was 25 years old. A host of actors and Hollywood stars have come forward in support of Polanski, urging US authorities to drop the warrant. Sky News
