Majority in the Folketing agrees on an indictment against Støjberg


Majority in the Folketing agrees with accusations against Støjberg. However, they will not be made public yet.

A majority in the Folketing has reached agreement on what should be in the indictment for a national court case against the former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Integration and Housing Inger Støjberg (V).

This is stated by the chairman of the subcommittee that handles the national court case, Jeppe Bruus (S), on Wednesday.

However, he does not want to disclose what has been agreed between the parties, as Inger Støjberg himself must have an opportunity to submit his comments to the committee.

– I understand the interest, but it must take place in a way where she has the opportunity to comment on it, Bruus says to the journalists present.

– We are now sending it to Inger Støjberg. It is right and reasonable that she gets it sent first, so you do not have to read through the press what you are accused of, explains Kristian Hegaard, who is the Radical Left’s member of the subcommittee.

Once that has happened, an indictment is expected to be finally adopted in a week.

The case has been quickly dealt with in the Folketing, as it becomes obsolete after 10 February, where it is the fifth anniversary of the “clearly illegal” instruction to separate asylum couples, which is the core of the case.

The instruction concerned the separation of all asylum couples, where one was a minor, without individual assessment. It was issued when Inger Støjberg was the responsible minister for the area in 2016.
