Denmark seizes first refugee valuables
Copenhagen police confiscated €10,700 from five Iraqi citizens, marking the first use of a controversial law that allows police to seize precious items. "Danish police checks every day whether asylum seekers have valuables that can help finance the costs of their stay. Police now found valuables that could be seized for the purpose," said Per Fiig, a police officer. The five Iraqis were arrested and sought asylum in Denmark.
