Swiss grant Roman Polanski bail

Posted on

A Swiss court has approved a $4.5 million bail request from imprisoned director Roman Polanski. The Associated Press reports that if Polanski is released, he would remain in Switzerland under house arrest and electronic surveillance. However, Swiss authorities will keep the Oscar winner in jail until they decide whether to appeal his release to a higher court. They have 10 days to make a decision.
