In recent letters I have received from the Institute, they are talking about adding Camilla Broe to the webpage for Danes who have been exposed of xenophobia.
Who is Camilla Broe?
Back some 15 years she went to the United States where she got engaged to a man from Israel. The next many years she lived as a wife who kept her house and was used as a commercial for the businesses of her husband.
She even gave birth to a girl.
The relationship was violent but because she was young and in a foreign country she was not able to break away from the relationship.
What she didn't know was that her fiancée was a drug lord. Her case is very similar to the well published case of Chantal McCorkel, who also stated to have been naive and in love. So when the police approached her and asked her to testify against her fiancée which is absolutely against all Danish tradition, how could she even if she had the slightest suspicion?
The other members of the drug-ring took plea deals and because they were just as afraid of her fiancee as she was they pointed at her to be the drug lord. Suddenly she was facing 63 years in prison and she wasn't even arrested!
So the first question we as Danes have to ask is: Why did they not arrest her back then if they were going to convict her to that many years in prison? We are talking of almost twice the length of a man jailed in Denmark for shooting 4 unarmed cops. He served only 33 years before being released.
Anyhow she returned to Denmark and started to live a modest life. If she had been the drug lord she would have no need to take a job and remain an unmarried single mom.
For many years she remained an unknown person with no police record and absolutely no involvement with the police. Then suddenly she is arrested in 2007 because the United States wanted it.
The reason for her arrest is that Denmark in the meantime has made a new law targeted against terrorism, which can send Danes to foreign states with no question asked about how the legal rights are protected.
The law did not exist when she lived in the United States. If we should compare it with something it must be the freedom fighters during WWII. In 1942 the Danish prime minister Vilhelm Buhl spoke of the freedom fighters as they were terrorists. After the war he was made prime minister again despite this speak. Suddenly the people who have believed in him based on his 1942 speech and acted on it were transformed from law abiding citizens to criminals and some were executed.
Camilla Broe settled in Denmark based on the laws at the present time. She never broke any laws while living in Denmark. Now she is suddenly labeled as a criminal and about to be sent to her death in Florida.
Death? What about the guarantees Denmark whipped the United States to accept? Is she not going to return to Denmark within 6 months of a possible conviction?
Well these guarantees are none existing. First of all we have the pleas of all the other gang members. Remember that they got decades in discount for naming her as their boss. Some in the prosecutor office made these deals and if Denmark hires a high profile lawyer, he could properly produce evidence which would expose people in the prosecution office as fools who have made deals with the real criminals instead of conducting a real investigation.
Because the job of a prosecutor is an elected job, this means that this job is used for politics. A prosecutor has to produce results if they want to go for the mayor job later in life. They need to silence her or get her to agree to whatever charges they can invent very quickly.
So the minute she arrives in Florida she will be put in the most dangerous jail in Florida among the most feared inmates to break her down. They will try all to get her to take a plea, so they can avoid a trial. And if I had to advice her, I will ask to the take the 63 years in jail regardless of the fact that most speak off that she is innocent.
If she refuse, it can take decades before the trial can start because it is 15 year since they last had knowledge of where the wittnesses were. All that time she would have to remain in a jail in Florida and her little daughter will be lost in the foster care system in Denmark, unless her father - the fiancée living a high profile life in Israel outside the reach of the U.S justice system demands her to be sent to Israel.
It is most likely that she will not survive being extradited to Florida. It is a sick justice system over there and both the prosecution and the other criminals think that she properly knows too much.
Sending her to Florida will be injustice and it would properly kill her.
But is that enough for her to earn an unfortunate place on the webpage?
Yes, I believe that she should be published on the webpage because the case against her in Florida will be based on plea deals meant to frame a foreigner. Being a young naive girl doesn't qualify her to be convicted to a prison sentence only suitable for a drug lord.
What is your opinion?
Here is two links to message boards where the case is debated:
Florida wants to execute a Dane (Fornits - in English language)

I have seen several posters starting to question both our NATO membership and our partipation in the war on terrorism.ReplyDelete
That is not what we are sending our soldiers out to risk their lives for. It is just too shameful for a state like Florida.
The number of people supporting July 4 in Rebild have never been so low.
You are way off on the facts. You must not know her very well. She was never engaged to him.ReplyDelete
She was not a victim as you describe. She knew
all that was going on. She participated in seedy illegal events and got pregnant on purpose to trap the drug lord. She loved the underground lifestyle.
She broke the law and now tries to hide behind her Danish citizenship to avoid prosecution. She acted in full knowledge of what she was doing and endangered her innocent daughter. The alleged crime was committed in the US and the trial should be too. Let the court decide her fate...ReplyDelete
I am sad that this case has come so far. I don't know what to believe any more.ReplyDelete
Is it a part of a dirty political deal where Denmark was given an important post in exchange for her to be sent to a show trial?
She believes that she is innocent and now they try to raise money for a defense. I doubt that any money in the world can protect her from being wrongly sentenced. It looks like dirty politics and nothing more.
In Denmark The Camilla Broe case in fact has nothing to do about if / or Camilla had been smugling or not. She is deported to Florida because the Danish court and government like to be "good friends" with the USA. They used a special "Terror law" and now in fact all people in Denmark have the risks to be deported too, if for instance The USA, China, India want to punished a Danish citizen.ReplyDelete
So the Danish Government is: RECKLESS, SHAME ON THE DANISH GOVERNMENT.
just like to comment on the article...ReplyDelete
Camilla was never engaged to this person that this case is about, nor is it his child, and but the person however was violent. It's a shame with so many misunderstanding. It certainly doens't help her when people make negative false factual statements!!
our civil liberties are in danger when Camilla Broe on these weak grounds have been extradited.ReplyDelete
I would like more critical information from civil rights lawyers. This is very problematic
She is a criminal who purposefully poisoned many youth for her personal gain.ReplyDelete
First the focus must be how the minister of justice Brian Mikkelsen seem to able to bully the justice system so the take the cases he prefer before the surpreme court.ReplyDelete
Not only her case but also the weapon charge against a young man who had two small knives from his work in his car and got 7 days in jail is interesting cases where the politican system seem to control the courts.
Something is very rotten in Denmark.
I don't give a damn about any youth poisoned in another country. Not for a second. None has sent aid to Denmark when we were robbed of our early retirement (Efterløn), so we shouldn't concern ourselves for one second about a human being in another country.
We must find a way to punish Florida for the insult of having her extradited without any charges we can read in Danish before the desicion was made.
Second we has to deport at least 100 refugee to a certain death as a kind of revenge for every single Dane extradited in the future. The 22 refugees we sent to Iraq is a good start.
My name is Mario Herrea, American citizen living in Denmark. And in the same justification that Camilla Broe was extradited to USA to face legal court. I am requesting that the crminal Danish police officers Nicoali Cederskjold and Anders Bitsch that brutalized me November 1, 2006, they have to be prosecute in USA judicial court. Ask Obama and ask the FBI why they are in SILENCE in front my request. To listen audio tape conversation with the FBI and USA State Department goes to www.norightsforyou.comReplyDelete
so stupid to claim she is innocent just because she is danish. Get a life, and use it. Many Americans lost theirs due to her drug transfers.ReplyDelete
Everyone says they can't find witness, yet Danes dont understand that they must report to probation. The child is Jacob Orgad's baby, not Fernando's. Camilla ran to Jacob the Drug Kingpin when Fernando threw her out.
Camilla Broe purposely got prenant by Jacob Orgad in LA, California so she would not have to work anymore. It back fired when the drug kingpin was arrested in New York.ReplyDelete
SHE is set free today....ReplyDelete
It's true that she ran to Jacob when Fernando threw her out! Fernando never spoke one word about here.....ReplyDelete
Maybe it's time to open a book about the real "Camilla"....ReplyDelete
