Roman Polanski Is Transferred to Undisclosed Location

Swiss authorities said on Thursday that they had moved Roman Polanski from a jail near Zurich to an undisclosed site before the filmmaker’s release on bail, The Associated Press reported.
Folco Galli, a spokesman for the Swiss justice ministry, told The A.P. that Mr. Polanski, 76, had been transferred for “security reasons and personal protection” but declined to say where he was now being held.

The ministry said on Wednesday that Mr. Polanski would be released on Friday to his chalet in Gstaad, where he will begin serving a house arrest. Mr. Polanski agreed to pay $4.5 million and wear a security monitoring device, among the conditions of his bail.

Mr. Galli said that Thursday’s transfer “doesn’t change anything in principle.” He added that Mr. Polanski “will still be transferred tomorrow.”
