(DENMARK) #MigrantCrisis Report: Lawmakers have passed legislation as MPs voted for the bill by 70 votes to 24 allowing it to relocate asylum seekers to third countries outside the EU while their cases are reviewed #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.05: But the European Commission said it had concerns about the law, and a leading NGO said it was irresponsible:

Denmark Asylum: Law passed to allow offshore centres: The project, proposed by the Social Democrat-led government, would seek partner countries to run camps and fund agencies along migration routes as more countries consider the same move

Demonstrations against plan to deport Syrian refugees - April
Recent moves to revoke residence status for Syrian refugees sparked protests

Denmark has repeatedly tightened its immigration policies in recent years.

This follows a peak of more than 21,000 asylum seekers arriving in Denmark in 2015.

EPA: Denmark’s tough immigration policies began after record numbers of migrants arrived in 2015

“If you apply for asylum in Denmark, you know that you will be sent back to a country outside Europe, and therefore we hope that people will stop seeking asylum in Denmark,” said government spokesman Rasmus Stoklund, quoted by Reuters news agency.

The asylum cases would be reviewed in the third country and the applicant could potentially be given protection in that country.

But the European Commission was critical of the law.

“External processing of asylum claims raises fundamental questions about both the access to asylum procedures and effective access to protection,” said spokesman Adalbert Jahnz, quoted by Reuters news agency.

The Danish Refugee Council (DRC), a leading NGO, said in a statement that MPs had “effectively voted in the blind”, as the model they had backed did not yet exist. 

“The idea to externalise the responsibility of processing asylum seekers’ claims is both irresponsible and lacking in solidarity. We have repeatedly called on the Danish members of parliament to reject this bill,” it said.

The council added that there was now a risk of countries hosting larger numbers of refugees would also opt out.

Denmark recently signed a migration deal with Rwanda leading to speculation that it intends to open a facility there.

Two weeks ago it became the first European country to revoke residence status for more than 200 Syrian refugees.

Danish authorities say parts of Syria are safe enough to return to but the move has sparked protests from activists and community groups.

Last year the UK considered building an asylum processing centre on Ascension Island, a remote territory in the Atlantic Ocean, but decided not to proceed.

Australia has also caused controversy in recent years with its use of camps for processing asylum seekers in Nauru and Papua New Guinea.

(DENMARK) JUST IN: Secret service helped the US spy on European politicians including German Chancellor Angela Merkel from 2012 to 2014, local media report #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jun.01: Intelligence was collected on other officials from Germany, France, Sweden and Norway, according to the report:

NSA Spying Row: Denmark helped US gather data on European officials, says report that the Defence Intelligence Service (FE) collaborated with the US National Security Agency (NSA) to gather information, according to a report by Danish broadcaster Danmarks Radio.

In a new report shared with several European news agencies, the NSA is said to have accessed text messages and the phone conversations of a number of prominent individuals by tapping in to Danish internet cables in co-operation with the FE.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel uses her mobile phone before a meeting at a European Union summit in Brussels, 9 December 2011
Angela Merkel was allegedly targeted by US intelligence

Similar allegations emerged in 2013.

Then, secrets leaked by US whistleblower Edward Snowden alleged tapping of the German chancellor’s phone by the NSA.

When those allegations were made, the White House gave no outright denial, but said Mrs Merkel’s phone was not being bugged at the time and would not be in future. 

Germany is a close ally of the US. 

The alleged set-up, said in the report to have been codenamed “Operation Dunhammer”, allowed the NSA to obtain data using the telephone numbers of politicians as search parameters, according to Danmarks Radio.

The report follows an investigation by the broadcaster involving interviews with nine sources, all of whom were said to have had access to classified information held by the FE. 

Along with Mrs Merkel, then-German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and opposition leader at the time Peer Steinbruck were also said to have been targeted.

Denmark’s Defence Minister Trine Bramsen, who had reportedly been earlier informed of the espionage, told Danmarks Radio that “systematic wiretapping of close allies is unacceptable”. 

Neither the FE nor the NSA have yet commented on the latest reports.

Following news of the report on Sunday, Mr Snowden accused US President Joe Biden of being “deeply involved in this scandal the first time around”. Mr Biden was US vice-president at the time the reported surveillance took place.

There should be an explicit requirement for full public disclosure not only from Denmark, but their senior partner as well,” he tweeted. 

In 2013, Mr Snowden – a former contractor for the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) – leaked to the media details of extensive internet and phone surveillance by US intelligence. 

The US then charged him with theft of government property, unauthorised communication of national defence information and wilful communication of classified communications intelligence.

Mr Snowden later sought refuge in Russia. 

Prior to the evidence he exposed, top US intelligence officials had publicly insisted that the NSA had never knowingly collected data from private phone records.

(STOCKHOLM, Norway.) JUST IN: A man has been charged for his alleged role in plans to carry out three extremist attacks in Denmark and in London, and for purportedly spreading #IslamicState group propaganda on the internet #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.16: In this case, the jihadi was active in Norway, Denmark, and the UK. He moved freely among the three. Authorities say they believe “he was part of a group that sought to strike a church in England, possibly St. Paul´s Cathedral in London, but British police thwarted the plot….The man was also allegedly involved in plans for one or more attacks in Denmark in March and April 2019.”

Norway: ‘ Unidentified jihadist plotted massacres in Denmark & London, spread #IslamicState material in 2019 with a plan to attack St Pauls but British police thwarted the plot, Norwegian broadcaster NRK reported Monday’

“Alleged #IslamicState Supporter Charged For Thwarted Attacks on Denmark and London,” Associated Press, April 12, 2021:

Authorities believe the 24-year-old man, who wasn’t identified, was part of a group that sought to strike a church in England, possibly St. Paul´s Cathedral in London,

The man was also allegedly involved in plans for one or more attacks in Denmark in March and April 2019 with help from at least one Danish citizen, prosecutor Geir Evanger told NRK. Those attacks are believed to have been prevented as well.

The man has maintained his innocence. If found guilty, the man who claims to be innocent, faces up to 21 years in jail, NRK said. The trial starts in Oslo on May 18.

Evanger was quoted as saying by NRK that as to his involvement in IS, the man spread “extremist material, violent material and material with religious content” online. He was an administrator for several groups on social media, including some he had created, the prosecutor said, adding they consider him to be “a relatively central participant in many of these groups.”

NRK said the man had been held in custody for a while….

(DENMARK) Court Report: Prosecutors have charged three Britons and three Americans with defrauding the treasury of more than 1.1bn kroner ($175m; £130m; €150m) through a German bank #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.14: Two British citizens have already been charged as part of a “cum-ex” trading fraud that swindled the treasury of a total of 12.7bn Danish kroner:

Denmark charges six from UK and US with cum-ex fraud: Prosecutors believe the six charged are “the central principals” in the fraud …..If found guilty, they could face 12 years in jail.

22 hours ago

Denmark's Skat tax agency
Denmark says some 12.7bn kroner was paid out by the Skat tax agency to foreign-based companies and individuals

How the scam worked

Denmark’s Serious Economic and International Crime (SEIC) fraud squad said that for more than a year, between 2014 and 2015, hundreds of fake share trades were carried out via the Mainz-based North Channel Bank in Germany. 

The aim was to defraud the Danish treasury of 1.1bn kroner through refunds for tax dividends. The bank made a substantial sum in fees and was eventually fined in 2019.

Judge Roland Zickler said last year there would be more trials

Denmark’s was just one of a number of European treasuries caught up in the so-called “cum-ex” scandal, in which tax refunds on share sales were claimed by both parties on tax that had only been paid once. 

In total, 12.7bn kroner was paid out to foreign-based people or companies, exploiting a loophole that allows foreigners to avoid the tax on dividends that Danes have to pay: Germany fears huge losses in massive tax scandal

Two other Britons were charged in January for their alleged role in the Danish fraud. Among them is hedge-fund investor Sanjay Shah, who is reportedly in Dubai and denies any wrongdoing. He is also being prosecuted by German authorities.

Two British bankers were given suspended sentences by a German court last year for what the judge called a “collective case of thievery from state coffers”. The cum-ex scam is estimated to have cost Germany’s treasury €5bn.

Denmark has worked with UK, German and Belgian authorities on the scandal for the past five years.

Fraud prosecutors in Copenhagen said in February they were looking into a variety of networks of people and companies that had sought dividend tax refunds. They froze Sanjay Shah’s mansion in London’s Hyde Park last year as part of their case.

Prosecutors say they have now charged suspects linked to 10bn kroner out of the total defrauded from the Danish treasury.

#denmark, #fraud, #scandal

(COPENHAGEN, Denmark.) Danish citizen, Jacob el-Ali is wanted internationally for terrorism, yet claims to be stuck in #Syria: Now he is calling for its countries help to come home but had previously posed on Faceboo k with grenades and severed heads now says he’s remorseful #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – June.01: Jacob el-Ali, 29, who left Denmark to join the Islamist cause in the Middle East and has been wanted since 2014, has expressed regret and is admittedly ready to return for a “fair trial” in the Scandinavian country, the Danish daily Jyllands-Posten reported: Previously, el-Ali published photos of himself on Facebook posing with a gun and hand grenades amid severed heads and bloody corpses in the Syrian city of Raqqa. On his belt, the emblem of Daesh* was visible, according to the Danish daily #AceNewsDesk reports

In an interview with Radio24syv, el-Ali claimed to be suffering from remorse and asked for an opportunity to return via Turkey: “I have talked to the Danish authorities about returning home; I have called the Danish police. I have talked to my lawyer about it; I have called the Danish embassy and there is not really anyone who will help. What they actually say to us is that we just have to stay here and die,” el-Ali said about himself and fellow Danish jihadis.

By his own admission, el-Ali has lost his passport. He said wanted to be arrested in Turkey, so that he could be extradited to Denmark. The Turkish police, however, reportedly rejected him and sent him back to Syria.

“It’s a little bit bizarre that a Danish citizen is in need, but is praying for the Turkish authorities to arrest him,” el-Ali’s defender Mette Grith Stage said. Grith Stage found it “worrying” that Danish authorities and politicians would rather have a terrorist on the loose in Syria than judged in Denmark. “He is still a Danish citizen, and if he has done something wrong, he must return home to Denmark and be held responsible for it and serve a sentence.”

Neither the Copenhagen Police, nor Justice Minister Søren Pape Poulsen of the Conservative Party has commented on the case. The Foreign Ministry stated, without referring to this particular case, that one generally tries to help all Danish citizens in dealing with problems at Danish embassies or consulates abroad.

The case of Jacob el-Ali is the second of its kind over a short period of time. Last week it was established that Ahmed el-Haj, a 26-year-old Danish citizen, who previously appeared in an Islamist video featuring portraits of former Prime Minister and NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and Conservative politician Naser Khader shot as “enemies of Islam,” has signaled his desire to return home from a Turkish prison.

The very same Naser Khader recently penned an opinion piece in Jyllands-Posten, where he claimed that jihadists are unwanted in Denmark.

“I do not understand why we need resources to pick up a national traitor and expose ourselves to a risk of future terrorist attacks,” Khader wrote.

In recent years, Denmark has contributed to the jihadist cause with around 150 “foreign fighters.” Previously, Copenhagen had made it clear that these “foreign fighters” are not welcome back in Denmark and even tried revoking their citizenship.

` Two Journalists Covering ` Bildeberg Conference ‘ are Arrested Under False Pretences ‘

#AceNewsServices – TORONTO – JUNE 01 – On MAY 28, 2014 – Dan Dicks of Press For Truth and Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change were arrested at the Marriott Hotel while covering Bilderberg 2014. They were eventually released without being charged with a crime.

Reasons given for the arrest were at first “drugs” even though none were found, then after public backlash and a demand for answers the reason given was “engaging in suspicious activity”.


This was an illegal detention of journalists and the rights of the free press were violated.

“…respect for a free press is the cornerstone of our democratic system, especially when covering an event like Bilderberg.” — Dan Dicks

Activist and investigative journalist Dan Dicks is at the Bilderberg protest in Denmark with his media company, Press for Truth.

The protest is taking outside the Marriott Hotel where the 62nd annual Bilderberg meeting is happening. Both the meeting and demonstration will occur from May 29 to June 1.

This four-day annual event is an opportunity for activists and citizen journalists to protest the secretive meeting of the world’s top financial, political and industrial elite.

No survivors have been found, AFP said, citing an official.

The Nepal Airlines plane with 15 passengers and three crew crashed into a forested hill in Arghakhanchi district, 226km west of the capital, with aircraft pieces found in a nearby village.

The plane, carrying locals and one passenger from Denmark, lost contact with air traffic controllers after taking off from the town of Pokhara on Sunday afternoon. The aircraft from the state-run carrier encountered heavy rain en route from Pokhara to the town of Jumla, 353km west of Kathmandu.

” Nepal Airlines Plane goes missing with 15 passengers on board after taking off from Pokhara Airport”

#AceWorldNews says that a `Nepal Airlines Plane’ carrying 15 passengers, including one infant, and three crew members went missing on Sunday afternoon shortly after taking off from a popular tourist resort, police and airline officials said.

Nepal police spokesman KC Ganesh told AFP that the Nepal Airlines plane took off from Pokhara airport at 1:30 pm and disappeared 15 minutes later.

“One of the passengers is from Denmark,” spokesman Ram Hari Sharma told AFP. “The rest of the passengers are from Nepal.

The airline has alerted police to find the plane’s location” and is “preparing for rescue operations,” Sharma said.

The state-owned aircraft was travelling from Pokhara to the town of Jumla, 353 kilometers (220 miles) west of the capital Kathmandu, when air traffic controllers lost contact with the cockpit.

#CopehagenZoo : `Young Giraffe called Marius Destroyed for not Being Perfect’ – Disgraceful!!!

#AceNewsServices says “Surplus’ giraffe put down at Copenhagen Zoo all in the name of being the `Perfect Genetic Specimen according to `Bengt Holst’- Scientific Director” `

A bid to save a young giraffe from destruction at Copenhagen Zoo has failed, and the giraffe was put down on Sunday morning.

Thousands of people had signed an on-line petitions appealing for a change of heart over the two-year-old called Marius.

The zoo said it had no choice because of its duty to avoid in-breeding.

Marius was due to be killed by a bolt gun, not a lethal injection, which would contaminate the meat.

The carcass will partly be used for research and partly to feed carnivores at the zoo.

Marius
Several institutions had offered to house Marius before the giraffe was destroyed

The UK’s Yorkshire Wildlife Park – which has a state-of-the-art giraffe house and the capacity for an extra male – was among several zoos which put in a last-ditch offers to take Marius.

It said it was “saddened” by the killing of the animal.

‘Good practice’Stine Jensen, from Denmark’s Organisation Against the Suffering of Animals, said the situation “should not have occurred”.


“Start Quote

I can’t believe it.

We offered to save his life. Zoos need to change the way they do business”

Robert KrijuffDirector of Dutch wildlife park

“It just shows that the zoo is in fact not the ethical institution that it wants to portray itself as being, because here you have a waste product – that being Marius.

“Here we have a zoo which thinks that putting this giraffe down instead of thinking of alternatives is the best option,” she said.

But Bengt Holst, scientific director at the Danish zoo, defended Marius’s destruction, saying that giraffes had to be selected to ensure the best genes were passed down to ensure the animal’s long-term survival.

He told the BBC it was a responsible practice on the part of zoos to manage their animal populations to ensure they remained healthy, with some 20-30 animals put down at Copenhagen Zoo in a typical year.

“Giraffes today breed very well, and when they do you have to choose and make sure the ones you keep are the ones with the best genes,” Mr Holst told the BBC.

He said all zoos had been considered and there was no place for Marius – including at Yorkshire where, he said, any space should be reserved for a genetically more important giraffe.

The campaign to save him, he said, had gone “much too far”.

Animal rights campaigners have described the move as barbaric and have accused the zoo of being unethical.

The director of a wildlife park in the Netherlands, Robert Krijuff, whose last-minute offer of a place was also rejected, said: “I can’t believe it.

We offered to save his life. Zoos need to change the way they do business.”

Afghanistan:”Taliban Suicide Bomber and Gunmen Attacked Restaurant Killing Twenty One People Including Three UN Staff”

#AceWorldNews says (Reuters) – A Taliban suicide bomber and gunmen attacked a restaurant popular with foreigners in the heart of the Afghan capital Kabul, killing 21 people including three United Nations staff and the IMF’s top representative in Afghanistan.

Gunmen burst into the Lebanese restaurant spraying diners with bullets after the bomber blew himself up near the entrance around 7.30 p.m. on Friday, just as people sat down to dinner.

Thirteen foreigners were among those killed, according to police, and details about the victims began to trickle through on Saturday.

The U.S. embassy said on Twitter at least two U.S. private citizens were killed. Britain and Canada confirmed they each lost two nationals. Denmark said one of its citizens also died.

The American University of Afghanistan said two of its U.S. employees died in the attack on La Taverna du Liban, a popular dining spot whose charismatic owner, Kamal Hamade, was also killed.
