The Camilla Broe case - candidate for the webpage.

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)

Welcome to this blog

As we in Denmark are discussing the perhaps latest victim to earn a place on the webpage for Danes who have been exposed of xenophobia abroad, I will like to present what this blog is about.

The webpage on its self have only limited coverage on each of the cases. On this blog I will publish background material on each case so people can learn why those people ended up being placed on this webpage.

I have written with some of the people from the Institute for dissemination of Danish culture and information.

The reason for the existense of the webpage was that Denmark has been critized the recent years.

Presently we have problems with socalled refugees, which don't want to return to Iraq for unknown reasons. We know that Iraq has to be safe. They were travelling down there on holidays from a Swedish airport to cover their tracks. Second of all the government down there wouldn't have accepted to take them back if it was unsafe because then the government would loose face. We just have to get them out because Denmark is undergoing some tough times right now so we have to make it into "It's them or us". The police has even announced that is it considered a criminal act to support them in person for in writing.

Denmark is unfortunately a member of the European Union. The EU is all about harmonization. The concept is that all member states allign their standard on a certain area to the level of the poorest country. Because Denmark's standards on almost everything are second to none, it means that we will suffer until the other countries can caught up with us. For some decades we even have to lower our standards. People will start to starve in Denmark.

Second of all the European rules about immigration allows people from all parts of the Union to come to Denmark and enjoy the benefits in our country without working for them. Our borders are non-existing which have meant a raise in crime. If you have to compare then it is like the United States allowing people from Mexico to enter and work for free without any control.

So it is very clear for all that there is no room for non-productive people in Denmark. So they have to go.

People are also attacking Denmark for the Cartoon war. It is our most proudest moment since the evacuation of Jews during WWII and back then we did it because it paid will. This time we did it because we did feel for it. It is also our single most effective attack on the morale in the war on terrrorism.

But all that negative press put upon our country seem to have resulted in Danes being exposed of xenophobia in raising numbers and that is what the webpage is about.
