The Puerto Rico ACLU just hours ago released a statement specifying that Abdel Rahim will not be extradited to California.
Justice Isabel Llopmert-Zeno, has issued an order dismissing the Puerto Rico’s Department’s petition for an extradition order based on the Governor of California not signing an extradition request.
Maha Abdel Rahim was arrested on the 10th of January 2013 based on an arrest warrant issued by the Riverside Superior Court, with a $ 200,000 bond, and spent 6 days in jail until the ACLU was able to secure her release without bail.
The arrest warrant was issued by Judge Gary Tranberger of the Riverside Superior Court, based on the alleged failure by Abdel Rahim to hand over her son. The Riverside Superior Court District Attorney’s office only filed a complaint on 1/31/2013 and amended the complaint on 2/11/2013.
The question remains who will compensate Abdel Rahim for her pain and suffering due to false arrest, imprisonment and a clear case of malicious prosecution.
