Denmark to use ‘treason’ laws against Muslim Terrorists

When the new parliamentary season opens on Tuesday, an item at the top of the government’s agenda will be strengthening the laws related to Danes who fight alongside terror groups abroad.

Justice Minister Søren Pind told news agency Ritzau that the government is prepared to implement tougher laws to punish Danish citizens who join terror groups like Isis to fight in Syria and Iraq.

Pind said he would not detail the plan until it was formally released but said the government had listened closely to recommendations from the Criminal Code Council (Straffelovrådet) to change Denmark’s current laws pertaining to treason.

“It will mean that the rules for treason will be fine-tuned so that one can be punished for working against Denmark. There is no doubt that what we are seeing is treasonous. It works against Danish interests, it radicalizes people against Denmark and contributes to them fighting for Denmark’s enemies,” Pind told Ritzau.


A good path for Canada to follow.

      one 9 mm round and summary execution without due process is cheaper and more permanent…

    Hopefully they will actually follow through, it does appear from here as if the Danes are waking up.

    Treason laws by their nature are designed to be racist.
    As No One Is Illegal has shown borders are a tool of western hegemony.

      Exactly. I think we should declare every city and town and hamlet a sanctuary city or town or hamlet as all people are just people and nation-states are completely irrelevant artificial political entities, as the EU has amply demonstrated recently. Merkel and the Pope have shown us the true path to destruction and a moral high ground! 🙂
