    Danish court annuls decision to extradite Misane to South Africa

    RIGA, Feb 20 (LETA) - A Danish court confirmed on Thursday the Danish Attorney General's decision to overturn the extradition of Latvian citizen Kristine Misane to South Africa, Danish media report.

    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.
