Roman Polanski moved to hospital for tests

Monday October 19, 2009

Oscar-winning director Roman Polanski, who is currently detained in Switzerland has been "taken from prison for medical attention" in a Zurich hospital, his lawyer has revealed.

The lawyer, Herve Temine, says he does not know when Mr Polanski will return to prison, but that he was "worn out".

The 76-year-old director was arrested last month over his 1977 conviction for unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl.

A final decision on whether he will be released on bail is expected in the next few days.
