Having this case right now would be a bad timing.
The war on terrorism has never been more unpopular in the United States. United States has never been more depended of the relationship to its allies. A lengthy trial would have threatened the relationship between Denmark and the United States.
We saw it the forth of July. In Denmark it has been custom to celebrate those Danes who immigrated to the United States. But shortly after the previous trial came to an end the case became so widely known to the Danish public that it froze the relationship between our countries. Never before this memorial had so few guests.
We don’t criticize our courts and according to our constitution the court system should function independent of the political system, but the arrival of a new ambassador at the same same when our supreme court denies to take this case before court might awake the suspicion that someone in the justice department choose the relationship between two countries on the cost of justice for this woman.
Given the present political situation there is much at stake.
I believe that we should raise the stake.
The Danish newspapers have written about this case for some time. There was no real crime committed on her behalf. Her boyfriend did commit the crimes and her crime was that she didn’t escape the violent relationship in time. That made her a criminal exactly as it did cost Faye Copeland a death sentence.
Several hundreds of ordinary people have create a group on Facebook against this case of unjust.
What Florida does, is insulting to our nation. At no point did they present to the public what she is charged with. There is no real evidence.
It is time to reply to this insult by aiming for what means most for the politicians behind this scheme.
It is time to call for an end to the Danish membership of NATO. It is the only real answer we can give to this case which have brought us to a situation where everything about democracy and justice suddenly is questioned.
