Suspect in Hedegaard shooting case may never stand trial in Denmark
The 26-year-old Danish national arrested in Turkey on Friday on suspicion that he carried out the attempted assassination of anti-Islam author Lars Hedegaard may never answer the charges against him in a Danish courtroom.
Denmark does not have a extradition treaty with Turkey, which would automatically compel the Turkish authorities to send the suspect to Denmark.
A Turkish court would have to institute extradition proceedings – a process that could prove to be both lengthy and complicated.
