Illegible paperwork from the Dutch authorities is currently holding up the planned extradition of a Polish murder suspect, a court heard today.
Samea Kubiak, 35, is suspected of murdering Paulina Starczewska with her then partner Darius Majchrzak, 39, in 2000. They are accused of killing the 21-year-old and then burying her underneath a caravan at a site on the outskirts of Amsterdam.
The couple, who now have three children and now live in Dudley, left Holland for France in 2000, before moving to the UK six years ago.
They were arrested on May 14 after police were called to a domestic incident outside their home in Occupation Road, Dudley.
Starczewska's mother reported her missing in August 2002, but the case remained unsolved. It was only reopened when police in Amsterdam later found the remains of a woman at the Het Rietveen camp site in Landsmeer. Majchrzak and Kubiak were living at the campsite at the time of the alleged murder, the court heard.
After her arrest Kubiak told detectives Majchrzak killed Miss Starczewska in early 2000 at the campsite.
Court News UK have reported that the court hearing to arrange her extradition has been temporarily been abandoned because 'blundering officials have sent paperwork with print so small that judges and lawyers are struggling to read it.' Kubiak is six months pregnant and has been held in custody for more than a fortnight since her arrest on May 19.
