This week one of our parliament members attacked the critical press in the Camilla Broe case who has uncovered untrue or at least inaccurate statements from officials. A minister in the Danish parliament told that they are untrue.
We are talking of the very Tom Bencke, who wants to drop people who have been denied status as refugees down with parachutes if the country they came from wouldn’t take them back. So we are talking of the real hardcore protectors of the law.
But how far should a country go in order to secure justice? We can all agree on that no Dane should commit things abroad which are crimes according to our law and then flee home using our justice system which are recognized as the most advanced and superior in the world as shield.
We did it very easy for the prosecution in Miami. We send her over there because we believed that the charged were not met with the statutes of limitation. We send her over there with no money for lawyers unlike the United States did in the Imam Rapito case where some United States citizens took it on themselves to seek justice without any involvement of the administration. She has unlike the case in Italy not received one cent to aid her in her defense. It should have been an easy job. Without money she would have got a no-good defense lawyer which should have been unable to even spell her name, but it did not go that way.
But the fact is that Camilla Broe has not committed a crime according to Danish if they charges listed in the appeal should count for something. The prosecution has decided to include charges which are direct violation with the extradition agreement. Charges like “conspiracy”. Conspiracy is not a crime in Denmark. According to the extradition agreement they can only charge her on acts which are crimes in BOTH Denmark and the United States.
Maybe it is correct to deport people in Denmark to courts the world over regardless if charges don’t count in Denmark. In some countries it is a crime to convert to Christianity. It is correct to deport people to face trial for that?
Yes, it is acceptable for the hardliners if they accept the contents of the appeal.`
But for most people it is essential that the crime people are extradited for is an act which is a crime in Denmark also.
So Tom Bencke and the hardliners who insist of calling her guilty without a conviction belong to a small minority.
So for now it is safe to seek refuge in Denmark if you have chosen to join the Christian belief instead of being a heathen.
