Polish Justice rejects extradition of Polanski to the u.s.

The decision however is not legally binding and representatives of American justice can still appeal the decision.

Last January, the United States handed over to Polish authorities a request for the extradition of Polanski that resides in France.

The judge who presided over the case, Dariusz Mazur, concluded that the request for extradition is inadmissible.

"In the Court's view, this would entail extradition illegal detention during some months of the person extradited including at least a few weeks in prison in conditions not suitable for difficult probably elderly people", he added.

The Oscar-winning Director admitted to having raped a young girl under 13 years old, Samantha Geimer during a photo shoot held in 1977 in Los Angeles.

At the time, Polanski spent 42 days in prison, having been released on bail.
