BC, Riga, 20.02.2020.Print version
A Danish court confirmed on Thursday the Danish Attorney General's decision to overturn the extradition of Latvian citizen Kristine Misane to South Africa, according to the Danish media information reported LETA.

Such a decision was taken by Danish Prosecutor General Jan Reckendorff after receiving new evidence from the Latvian Prosecutor General's Office, which issued a European arrest warrant for Misane and sent a request to the competent Danish authorities to extradite her to Latvia.

It is expected that Misane will now be extradited to Latvia, where she has been found to be a suspect for evading a court or custody order, theft of a financial instrument and for falsifying documents.

According to the Danish news agency Ritzau, Misane looked tired at Thursday's court proceedings in Copenhagen, but visually relieved at the court verdict.
