A Romanian woman has been imprisoned in the UK for 13 months awaiting trial-during which time she gave birth to a baby boy-because police and prosecutors failed to disclose vital evidence, UK media reported.
Petruta-Cristina Bosoanca, 25, was on remand for trafficking a Romanian prostitute to Britain. Her trial was however stopped after evidence cast doubt on the complainant’s story.
She was arrested in December 2016 and was released from HMP Bronzefield on Monday.
She gave birth five months ago to a baby boy, Christian. “There was no-one with me. In the moments when I was supposed to be happy, I was happy but unhappy at the same time,” she told BBC. The Romanian woman has repeatedly claimed she was not guilty.
