the minister of Justice, mr Søren Pape Poulsen (K) has a huge dilemma, as regards the fremmedkrigere, there is departure from Denmark, so therefore he at any time, that they had fallen in battle.
For Denmark may have to take against citizens who have fought for the militants in Syria and Iraq, if they have Danish citizenship. And it is better, than to travel around freely.
- It is better to sit in prison here, and we can work with them, than that they travel around freely. Of two evils it is the best thing.
- The best thing was that they had fallen in battle down there, but they are so sadly not all together, says Søren Pape Poulsen Wednesday at a consultation.
the Minister of justice is worried that they can move freely around, if not they will be prosecuted in Denmark.
The remaining in Syria and Iraq are the ones who are the most radicalised, he believes.
- You must really, really wanted the caliphate, if one is down there now. Whether you are a man or a woman, says Søren Pape Poulsen.
PET estimated last year that at least 150 people since 2012, have travelled from Denmark to Syria and Iraq.
the 40 fremmedkrigere are still in the conflict zone, informs Pape on Wednesday. They are not all Danish nationals. The rest are in Denmark, traveled to other countries or been killed.
- We have convicted the 13, nine are expelled by final judgment, five had dual citizenship, so they have been stripped of their Danish citizenship by court, says Søren Pape Poulsen.
There are not many who have dual citizenship of those who are back. He can't get it closer.
- It can very quickly become unsafe to talk, he says.
Also other european countries are grappling with fremmedkrigere, which has been fighting for the militant movement Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
It has previously emerged that France has targeted search of their own nationals, who have been senior members.
On behalf of the French special forces, iraqi soldiers hunted down and killed French nationals who have fought for the Islamic State. It wrote to the newspaper the Wall Street Journal last year on the basis of statements from iraqi officers and former French officials.
