Britta broke under the dramatic day in court: I felt like an animal

The eighth retsdag in the case against the svindelmistænkte Britta Nielsen was full of drama in the Copenhagen city Court.

Several times broke Britta Nielsen together, and the tears rolled during the tearful explanations.

It came to pass, among other things, when she on Friday morning again took to the witness box and told about the day she was arrested in south Africa 5. november 2018.

She was in his south african apartment, as it knocked on the door.

"When I open, overturning a lot of people in. One of them introduces himself and says that he has been hunting for me," explained Britta Nielsen.

"Who are busy. People run around, and there is a big jumble. The Danish cop pulls me to the side, and he says that there are studies underway. So he would recommend me, that I collaborate as much as possible," elaborated she told me that she felt like a 'puppet' during the time in south Africa.

"I will be nervous, and I get a feeling that I am a udstillingsdukke - like an animal, you just need to look at," said Britta Nielsen for the days in a south african court of law.

Britta Nielsen was visibly affected by having to go through the process about the arrest and the following days.

Several times she broke down while the voice was saturated with tears.

"I just wanted to home. I had no interest in being down there. I would home to my children," said Britta Nielsen.

A big part of her frustration was that she did not understand what was going on around his arrest, explained Britta Nielsen.

It was not, at least, that she by his own admission, can only be skoleengelsk, which, according to her explanation does not go far in south Africa. At the same time, she got no access to his Danish lawyer, Nima Nabipour.

All the put together, explained Britta Nielsen, meant that she wrote a number of documents, which she did not know what meant.

"I do not understand them. The cop just says, that I must tell the truth," said the tearful former employees of the national board of social services.

After Britta Nielsen's explanation had the two prosecutors did not immediately have any questions.

But later in the course of the hearing submitted Lisbeth Jørgensen and Kia's statements SØIK and the attorney general. Here, it appeared to Britta Nielsen, according to the two bodies understand English excellent.

Among other things, it was stated in the statement from the SØIK to 'Britta Nielsen spoke and understood English without any problems'.

According to the authorities, she was familiar with the terms associated with delivery, and she was, moreover, totally agree with what it had of the consequences. She came to understand so - according to prosecutors - the things that the south african authorities told her.

Just the question of Britta Nielsen's understanding of the extradition agreement can prove to be the key, when the punishment ultimately meted out in the case. Britta Nielsen has declared itself partially guilty of having defrauded for 117 million. crowns.

It is due to the so-called section 88, that can put 50% on top of the penalty - which in this case are at the maximum of eight years. Thus she may be up to 12 years in prison - depending on how much or little she understood.
