She was wanted by an Interpol red note
The main defendant in this case, Magdalena K., was wanted with a European Arrest Warrant and a red Interpol note. The woman was arrested on March 28 last year, but she was not sent to Poland until November 20. First, the permission to issue it to Poland was given by the District Court in Banska Bystrzyca, and then the consent was upheld by the Supreme Court of the Slovak Republic. The extradition procedure lasted many months, because K.’s defense made, inter alia, for granting her political asylum and arguing that the principles of the rule of law are violated in Poland, therefore a woman cannot count on a fair trial. K. also made two attempts to obtain a letter of iron from the District Court in Krakow, which would enable her to answer the so-called free rate pending a final judgment.
In the course of the investigation, Magdalena K. pleaded not guilty.
