Løkke regrets tweet about hate crime against Pape’s ex-girlfriend

Lars Løkke Rasmussen regrets that in 2018, as Prime Minister, he wrote a tweet about a case with Søren Pape Poulsen’s ex-girlfriend:

“Obviously, there was no conviction for a hate crime, so it was not a hate crime, and therefore my tweet was factually incorrect, and therefore factually it should not have been written”.

On Monday evening, Politiken could describe how video recordings shed new light on the case, where Søren Pape Poulsen’s then-boyfriend, Josue Medina Vazquez, was subjected to violence in front of the LA Bar in inner Copenhagen. However, within a day, the charge against the Slovak perpetrator was increased to a hate crime, which did not hold water in court.

The information shows, according to several experts, that the case was handled quite unusually at the higher levels of the police, considering that it was a simple case of violence.

Løkke says that he did not otherwise interfere in the case.

“I can rule that out 100 percent. The only involvement I’ve had in that case was the tweet I sent out.’
