The prison in 420 days - now she is thrown out

Copenhagen Police will not wait until the high court decides on the remand of a Latvian woman.

Two days before a scheduled court hearing next week will be south african police officers get transferred Kristine Misane, which they will take to the criminal proceedings in south Africa.

the Decision to implement the delivery just 48 hours before the scheduled hearing is taken by the Copenhagen Police.

- It is very surprising, says the woman's lawyer Henrik Stagetorn, in an immediate comment.

- that we're going to do something about, " continues the lawyer, who on Friday did not have any further comments.

The Latvian woman, who is 46 years old, was arrested by the Danish policemen during a stopover in the airport in Kastrup 8. december 2018. She had fled from south Africa with his daughter in three years. She wanted to move away from a violent relationship, she has told.

the Danish police responded to a call from south Africa. This goes she, among other things, illegal to have taken his daughter with him. The father lives in south Africa.

Since then, the Danish prosecutor's office said good for delivery. A specific guarantee from south Africa, that the woman will not be subjected to degrading treatment or torture, have been accepted.

where appropriate, there will be a maximum of 18 inmates in the prison cell, she can be placed in it, saith the. Both the district court as the high court has granted the extradition.

During the time Kristine Misane stayed in a cell in the Prison, " Vestre fængsel. The other day, 30. January, said a judge in the Copenhagen city Court, however, stop. She put Misane on the loose. There is a discrepancy between the punishment, she risks in south Africa, and the duration of the imprisonment, which is more than 420 days, ruled the judge.

Prosecutor Anders Larsson appealed on the ground the decision to The high Court. And the reaction got a suspensive effect. Kristine Misane was therefore led back to the cell to wait for the high court's decision.

it has scheduled a hearing Friday 14. February. However, keep the Copenhagen Police in an agreement with the south african authorities. Delivery will take place two days before.

- We have notified the high court that the udleveringsforretningen will be implemented as planned 12. February, says Anders Larsson.

the Question is whether the Police accordingly short-circuits the process and depriving the woman, who according to byrettens view, should be on the loose, an essential legal guarantee?

- the Hearing in the court of appeal on Friday 14. February is whether there is proportionality of the detention. It is not about delivery. This question has been finally settled in the judicial system. So one can say that there are two different questions, " says Anders Larsson.

the Case has caused quite a stir in Latvia. The country's top prosecutor in an email to Ritzau reported that, among other things, to have the attention on the violations of human rights in south Africa and have prompted a new assessment of the delivery - but in vain.

as late as in January asked Latvia's top prosecutor for a meeting with rigsadvokat Jan Rechendorff in Denmark. The answer was no.

Kristine Misane herself and her family have aired suspicions that the benevolent Danish casework due to South africa's help with the case of Britta Nielsen. She came to Denmark shortly before Misanes stopover.
