Roman Polanski awaits move from prison to house arrest

Roman Polanski will not be released from prison until Monday at the earliest, the Swiss justice ministry has confirmed.

Officials say arrangements for his house arrest at his chalet in the Swiss Alps will not be in place before then.

The 76-year-old has been granted bail after being arrested in September.

He has been wanted in the US since fleeing the country in 1978 after pleading guilty to having unlawful sex with an underage girl.
