The Australian Media is now reporting that Dorothy Lee Barnett’s (alias Alexandra Geldenhuys / Alexandra Canton) Extradition Hearing originally scheduled for Monday February 3, 2014 has been rescheduled for February 10, 2014.
These are common delay tactics when a lawyer asks sympathy from the court to give them more time to prepare. Often new legal representation is brought in. Meanwhile, Dorothy Lee Barnett Team appears to have plenty if time for the Media. This is another common tactic we’ve seen in these cases as the defendant’s legal team is more interested in trying the case in the media than the courtroom.
We find it ironic that today Dorothy Lee Barnett and her team of supporters have a sense of entitlement to make sure every single one of her legal rights is protected by the legal system, the very system she fled 20 years ago. Yet for the past 20 years that same system was unable to protect and ensure this father’s right ordered by the legal system to be a father to his own child.
Dorothy Lee Barnett sits in jail and on behalf of every Searching and Left Behind Parent that has been victimized by this crime, we applaud the courts for keeping her there. The worst thing that could happen in this case would if the courts allowed her to escape from jail and once again, flee the legal system.
