SAN JOSE, Costa Rica — A Texas woman wanted by the FBI for international parental kidnapping has been awarded asylum in Costa Rica and cannot be extradited to the United States.
Costa Rican court on Friday ordered the release of former Fort Worth, Texas nurse Chere Lyn Tomayko, who had been in a Costa Rican prison since September awaiting extradition to the U.S.
Under Costa Rican law, those awarded asylum cannot be extradited.
The reason: her ex-boyfriend had been granted joint-custody of their daughter. Tomayko says he abused her, so she took the kid to Coasta Rica, after which she was added to the FBI's (and Interpol's) Top Ten Most Wanted International Parental Kidnapping List.
I'm thinking the Bush administration already has invasion plans written up.
