Danish police warn that the excessively liberal refugee policies of Germany and Sweden endanger lives in neighbouring countries.
Intelligence services in Europe and the US have long warned that Islamic jihadis are among refugees coming to the West. Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET) is now criticizing Merkel’s and Sweden’s refugee policies, with direct warnings that they destabilize security in the region.
This might lead to the end of the Nordic Passport Union which has, since 1954, allowed Scandinavian citizens to travel freely among their countries without travel documents.
“Danish Security and Intelligence Service is aware that the [terror] threat against Denmark can come from abroad, especially neighbouring countries (Germany and Sweden). When assessing the terror threat, we therefore also follow developments in our neighboring countries. Our assessment is that refugees and migrants arriving in Europe and Denmark have contacts to Islamist groups or can be radicalized after arriving here,” PET said in a written statement to Danmarks Radio.
