Danish woman facing extradition to U.S.

The Danish Appeals Permission Board has refused permission for appeal to the Supreme Court in the case of a woman being sought for extradition by the United States.

Camilla Broe, 42, whom U.S. authorities allege was involved in a drugs smuggling case in the 1990s, has been denied appeal to the Danish Supreme Court, opening the road for her extradition. Broe’s counsel says she risks a 60-year prison sentence.

Broe sought appeal to the Supreme Court after the Eastern High Court in Lyngby near Copenhagen overturned a lower court decision declining a U.S. extradition request in the case, which involves charges of alleged complicity in an Ecstasy-smuggling operation to Florida in the 1990s.

Ecstasy
According to U.S. authorities, Broe is alleged to have been one of the leaders of a drugs smuggling operation which imported some 100,000 Ecstasy pills from the Netherlands to Florida at the end of the 1990s. According to Florida prosecutors, she was the partner of the head of the operation and both helped to enlist smugglers, as well as laundering the proceeds from the sale of the drugs.

Broe has denied the charges.

Terrorism
When US authorities eventually began to unravel the operation, Broe returned to Denmark - after having been told by an FBI agent that she was a suspect in the case. At the time of her return to Denmark, she could not be extradited back to the United States.

But when anti-terrorism laws were passed by Denmark's parliament in 2002, U.S. prosecutors took the opportunities made possible by the new law to request her extradition.
