Danish Authorities Announce that Chung Yoo-ra Will Be Extradited Back to South Korea

It is pretty clear that Danish authorities waited until the political drama concluded in South Korea before decided to send Chung home.  I think this was smart on their part because they protected her from clearly being used as a tool to get a political outcome.  With the impeachment of Park Geun-hye she is now no where near as valuable to the political opposition:

The Danish prosecution said Friday it decided to extradite the daughter of ousted South Korean President Park Geun-hye’s close friend for an investigation into a high-profile scandal that removed Park from office.

“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,” the prosecution said in a press release.

Chung Yoo-ra was arrested in the European country’s northern city of Aalborg in January as the Korean investigators put her on a wanted list. It was suspected that she received inappropriate academic and financial favors based on her mother’s close ties with the former leader.

“Chung Yoo-ra has three days to decide whether she will bring the decision by the Director of Public Prosecutions before the Danish courts,” the prosecution said. “If that happens, the District Court of Aalborg will be the first instance.”

Chung’s lawyer reportedly informed the Danish prosecution that Chung will appeal the decision.

“We believe this is highly political, and we have a fear that they want her to be able to press the mother,” Peter Martin Blinkenberg was quoted as saying by the Associated Press.  [Yonhap]

“DANISH AUTHORITIES ANNOUNCE THAT CHUNG YOO-RA WILL BE EXTRADITED BACK TO SOUTH KOREA”

The Croissant Authorities found it to be flaky. The Bagel Authorities said it was full of holes. The Anpan Authorities voiced no opinion other than having sweet buns.

Are you implying her defense was half-baked? Or were the Korean government lawyers buttering them up?

Don’t get all syrupy. The first batch of diplomats wouldn’t rise to the occasion and they had to send for the yeast likely.

The Cinnabon Authorities thought they were on a roll until then. Too late they realized the case was crumbling under the constant barrage of “Let Them Bake Cakes!”

“Wheat would the neighbors say?”

They were oo sick to comment due to my grain headache.

…and in other news…

The Wonder Bread Authorities might have been brown on the outside but were very white on the inside and seemed to have way too much dough. They also got caught in the sack with trailer trash.

Upon hearing the news, the Bimbo* Authorities made a rye comment. Little children at duck ponds everywhere thought “What a heel!”

Detective Panini tried to up the heat and pressure; but her lawyers refused to allow police to grill her. They wanted breakfast to fritter away more time
