Copenhagen: 84 percent of suspected criminals are “foreigners”

“The number of sexual offenses, violent crimes and drug crimes have indeed increased nationwide. These serious forms of crime are committed in to a very high degree by foreigners who have immigrated to Denmark. New figures show that 84% of those being presented in Copenhagen court with demand of detention, are originating from abroad. Only approximately 10 percent of them have Danish citizenship.

Detention of an accused can generally only take place when there is reasonable suspicion that the accused has committed an offense with a minimum penalty of at least 1.5 years. In other words: Those who are demanded to go in detention are accused of a serious crime.”
