the Payments are done either via a deposit in a bank or in cash upon attendance at each prison. Approximately a quarter of the money was paid by members of the now banned gang.
It is not illegal to deposit money to people in prison, but according to Jacob Dedenroth Bernhoft, money laundering expert and director of the revisorjura.dk, the Danish prisons in general have been used to launder money from crime.
- If you can get the cash put into an account and transferred them a few times and so have raised them again in cash, then you have the veil, where the money comes from,” says Jacob Dedenroth to Radio24syv
He emphasizes that he is speaking generally and not specifically about the LTF, since he did not know the circumstances of the case.
- It ends up with some money, which is difficult to trace the origin of, so you will, in principle, we could use it for money laundering, explains Jacob Dedenroth on the construction of the system.
the minister of Justice, mr Søren Pape Poulsen (K) communicate in a written comment to Radio24syv, that he has asked the national Police and Probation on a redgørelse. The minister calls it 'unacceptable', if prisons are used for money laundering for the gangs.
Deposits via Danske Bank
Probation tightened up the rules in 2017 and 2018, so it is today no longer possible to deposit money through physical meetings in the prisons. Today, this is done so exclusively through the Danish Bank, and the cash is also removed from most prisons.
the Tightening was a result of that, in the spring of 2017 came to light that several prison officers publicly said that they were witnesses to the blatant money laundering of the money among the gang members in prisons.
Counselors do not want to disclose how much money members of the LTF in all I have received in the prisons, or whether one has examined whether there may be a case of money laundering.
But it will the chairman of the Parliamentary legal affairs committee, Peter Skaarup (DF), now have the answers to, reads it in a comment to Radio24syv:
- For me it's totally subversive in relation to it to sit in prison. It would be like a punishment, but here we see then, that you are rewarded with money to sit in prison for that crime. I believe that you need to study it here completely to the bottom and ensure that it is not black money, that it is not money that in reality they are being laundered by, that the gangs can pay those who have made crime for them, by sitting in prison, says Peter Skaarup to the media.read more Close
