The announcement was made by Justice Minister Jānis Bordāns (he mis-typed her initial, later apologising for doing so).
Šodien @Cietumi mani informēja, ka saskaņā ar tiesas spriedumu šodien ir atbrīvojama no ieslodzījuma Latvijas pilsone I. Misāne— Jānis Bordāns (@Bordans) April 20, 2020
The prosecutor's office informed that an agreement had been reached between Misāne's legal representatives and prosecutors on a temporary custodial sentence of two months for Misāne upon her return to Latvia.
She was accused of disobeying a South African court decision regarding right of access to a child, kidnapping and use of forged documents.
The time spent in detention abroad and in Latvia from 20 February was included in the sentencing deal with the result that she was due to be released April 20.
As previously reported by LSM, the Misāne case strained relations between Latvia, Denmark and South Africa and centered on a custody battle between Misāne and the father of one of her children.
