It is the assessment of the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions that all conditions to extradite a South Korean woman to her home country are met.
Today, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has made the decision that the 20-year-old South Korean citizen Yoora Chung is to be extradited for the purpose of prosecution in her home country. So states Deputy Director Mohammad Ahsan from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions after the Director of Public Prosecutions has finished the extradition case that was sent from the South Korean authorities in January 2017.
The 20-year-old woman was arrested by the North Jutland Police on Sunday January 1st 2017 in a suburb of Aalborg because she was searched for by the South Korean authorities in a case about economic crime.
»After having reviewed the South Korean request for extradition thoroughly, it is our opinion that all conditions for extradition in the Danish Extradition Act are met,« says Deputy Director Mohammad Ahsan from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The South Korean Authorities have sent information to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions twice. Initially, it was the extradition request; secondly, it was documents containing anwers to some follow-up-questions posed by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions in order to reach a decision on the question of extradition.
»I know that the case has been subject to great attention in South Korea. Therefore, I am pleased that there has been a prevalent understanding of the fact that the case has taken the necessary time to handle it both thoroughly and in accordance with our legislation,« Deputy Director Mohammad Ahsan says.
Yoora Chung has three days to decide whether she will bring the decision of the Director of Public Prosecutions before the Danish courts. If that happens, the District Court of Aalborg will be the first instance.
