Sofie Carsten Nielsen on UN criticism: “As support parties, we can not ignore this”


It is in unison that the government’s support parties now – with reference to the understanding paper between them and the government – demand the government’s response to the UN’s criticism of Denmark. According to the UN, Denmark is violating international conventions by not taking Danish citizens home from Syrian camps, and despite political disagreements, the understanding paper just stated that conventions must be complied with.

“Right now we are dealing with, the UN special rapporteur says, that Denmark will break international conventions if we do not help Danish citizens out of the camps in Syria. And just exact compliance with the convention is completely enshrined. This has been the case for every Danish government, but it is also the case in the understanding paper we have with the government. So the government can not ignore this, and therefore we need to get a clarification of what is up and down in this, “says the radical leader, Sofie Carsten Nielsen.

You’re talking about the UN’s view on this. But is it also your conclusion that the government is not complying with international conventions?

“I am not a lawyer, but we will have to clarify this, drill out and then get the government’s lawyers, possibly. also others, to account for ‘.
