The government’s support parties are furious at the government’s unwillingness to bring Danish citizens home from prison camps in Syria. Now the Radical Left, the Unity List and the Socialist People’s Party are attacking the government, writes, as the three parties now demand a legal statement from the government in the case of the Danish children and adults in the prison camps.
The demand comes after the UN recently sent a letter to the government in which Denmark is criticized for violating international conventions by letting Danish citizens sit in the camps.
The UN criticizes Denmark for acting in violation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the UN Declaration of Human Rights, as the Danish government refuses to remove citizens from the al-Roj and al-Hol prison camps.
According to the leader of the Radical Left, Sofie Carsten Nielsen, the case could damage the relationship between the government and the support parties:
“This is very, very fundamental to the relationship between us as support parties and the government. International conventions are simply the very foundation of being able to support any government. It is stated in the understanding paper, and we take it very seriously. We do this together, «says Sofie Carsten Nielsen to Politiken.
“It seems a little desperate”
In an analysis on Tuesday, Berlingske’s political commentator Bent Winther described the leaders of the support parties as a trio who are being run over “over and over again” and who are currently acting as those “scolding”.
That there is once again a rumble and bang from the support parties, one should not be upset, says Bent Winther.
»The dispute over the Danish children and their mothers in Syrian prison camps has been going on for many months. The three support parties have tried pretty much everything to get the government to change course, and now they are trying with human rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. It seems a bit desperate, “says Berlingske’s political commentator.
Can the government deny that it has anything on it?
“It simply came to our notice then. The case of the Danish children has been investigated very thoroughly legally at home and internationally. That the UN and also the United States are pushing to get Denmark and a number of other countries to take their own citizens home has been going on for a long time. “
Does the government not have to take a coordinated request from its three support parties seriously?
»Apparently not. It looks like yet another humiliation of the three parties on foreign policy. Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod answers in Politiken quite arrogantly that they have already answered the question in an inquiry from the UN. And that he would then like to send the answer to the Radicals, the Unity List and the Socialist People’s Party, «explains Bent Winther.
Where does the dispute between the government and the support parties end?
‘Just over a month ago, the government and the supporting parties entered into an agreement to establish a task force to investigate each case and assess the law. This statement is to be discussed at a public hearing on 19 May. The inquiry from the three support parties indicates that they have lost confidence that the process leads to what they want: to get both children and mothers home. “
Does the strained relationship between support parties and the government have consequences?
“In all those areas, they are steeply opposite each other. However, the government has the majority on its side and does not intend to compromise on the strict foreign policy. In the long run, the very strained relationship will make life difficult in many other cases, and the pressure on Jeppe Kofod may grow again. We know that in a couple of the parties there is a great hunger to manifest its power as a parliamentary basis by overthrowing a minister, “Bent Winther explains.
