The multiple ex-offenders German had made a few days ago first, a request for early release from prison, the regional court of Braunschweig, then was withdrawn and the application with the regional court of Kiel made. Both courts considered that the other court had jurisdiction. The penalty enforcement chamber of Commerce in Braunschweig therefore decided on Monday that the Supreme court will clarify the jurisdiction.
Christian B. is currently incarcerated in the correctional facility in Kiel. In December of 2019, he was sentenced in Brunswick for the rape of a prison sentence of seven years. The fact happened in 2005, in the Portuguese seaside resort of Praia da Luz, where two years later, the three-year-old Madeleine McCann disappeared. This prison sentence for rape is not due to the possibility of authorities ' omissions in connection with the delivery of Christian B. to Germany but still quite strong. Also with this issue, the Federal court of justice is concerned.Updated Date: 23 June 2020, 19:20
