Switzerland considering Polanski bail

A Swiss court has agreed a £2.7 million bail deal for child-raping fugitive from justice Roman Polanski.

The Swiss government is deciding whether to appeal this decision, but if they don’t, Polanski will be free on bail.

Either the court is really stupid and figures money is going to deter Polanski from skipping town, or it is counting on him running away, so that he becomes another jurisdiction’s problem. I’m sure his art-loving friends will chip in to help him avoid any actual punishment for his crimes.
