Director Roman Polanski was moved by authorities on Thursday night from a jail near Zurich to an undisclosed location before his transfer to house arrest in the Swiss Alps. Justice Ministry spokesman Folco Galli told The Associated Press that Polanski was still expected to be taken to his chalet in the luxury resort of Gstaad on Friday afternoon. A private security guard took up watch at the house Thursday night. Polanski won't be allowed to leave his house while Switzerland decides whether to extradite him to the US for having sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old girl in 1977. He will have to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet. His house arrest was conditioned on the posting of $4.5 million in bail.
