You need to provide some cursory details of the case, before this gains some amount of traction at least.
Those details are between her and her hopefully soon to be found lawyer, who can then decide if he/she wants to take the case.
I'm sure the general public would love to hear all about these details (you could make a cliff-hanger mini series about it and write a best-seller) but the case isn't served by creating either a public spectacle beyond what I've already done here (a risk in itself but we have no time).
1> What area of Criminal law this pertains to.
2> Is she an Indian?
3> Is she looking for professional representation or someone in personal capacity.
> Based on this we can look up one from a prominent firm or not.
OK, that was all. The reason I tried to write it here rather than PM, is because others could also benefit from this kind of info when talking to their own respective contacts/lawyers/colleagues.
Again, I want to clarify that I was not digging for the kind of details that you seem to have implied on the reply. And sorry if I upset anyone.
EDIT: @swombat has already replied to these questions above when I was composing my reply to jacquesm.
I answered those points now in my post:
- It is not a good idea to discuss the details of the case right now. There is a police case, it is completely made up as an excuse to get hold of the person we're talking about (I've seen the case filing). The main charge is kidnapping, and she's the victim - but somehow she still gets arrested. India for the win.
- She's an Indian national.
- We need a professional, influential, trustworthy lawyer and are willing to pay (reasonable fees).
I've passed the details to jacques (he's doing the calling). I think this just bumped to the top of the list to call...!
