A reader from Austria has sent me the following:
He is referencing quotes from http://www.spiegel.de/panorama/justiz/youporn-betreiber-fabian-thylmann-nach-deutschland-ausgeliefert-a-872989.html
“Der 34-Jährige sei einem Richter vorgeführt worden und bleibe nun erst einmal in Untersuchungshaft”
Which means he was before a judge and remains in remand custody. the systems in europe work quite differently from british/us law.
for Untersuchungshaft (remand custody) the conditions are: there needs to be a high probability of a sentence for the alleged crime.secondly, there needs to be a reason to actually imprison the perp, that can be: danger of flight, danger of conspiracy (influencing witnesses, fucking with evidence), danger of a repetition of the alleged crime.
