Swedish Justice


Swedish Justice, aided and abetted by the State Department, has landed the American mother I wrote about in the current issue of NR in jail. Although her son was returned to Sweden last December, in May Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage authorized the extradition of Ann-Christin Jagne to Sweden to face child-abduction charges. While the U.S. government cooperates to this outrageous extent to mollify the Swedes, the Swedish government pays the court costs of its citizens who abduct American children in violation of international treaties, and refuses to extradite its citizens. While Ann-Christin serves her two years in a Swedish prison she will no doubt be reconsidering her decision to become a naturalized American when she could have remained a citizen of a country that defends its own.
