The longer three women with Danish citizenship and their 14 children stay in prison camps in Syria, the greater the security risk for Denmark they can go and stay.
It writes the Police Intelligence Service (PET) in an assessment that the service has prepared in connection with the considerations of repatriation of mothers and children.
However, the security benefit that could be gained in the short term by allowing women to remain in the camps must be weighed against the long-term and more serious threat that both women and their children may pose if left unchecked for a number of years. returns to Denmark more radicalized and with possible weapons training.
Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod (S) and Minister of Justice Nick Hækkerup (S) confirmed at a press conference on Tuesday evening that the government will work to bring the three women and their 14 children home.
In addition, the government wants to pick up another five children with Danish connections to Denmark. But without their three mothers, who are not Danish citizens. However, this requires the consent of the mothers.
PET emphasizes that there will be a security risk, regardless of which solution you choose.
However, after weighing the pros and cons, the service sees several security benefits when taking it home.
– This solution is thus considered to be associated with the fewest moments of uncertainty in relation to the handling of the threat that the persons in question may pose in the long term against Denmark and Danish interests abroad, PET writes.
At the same time, the service emphasizes that the assessment is based on a precondition that the mothers are sought to be prosecuted in Denmark.
In addition, a “significant and targeted government effort” must be initiated towards the children.
It must ensure that they are offered the necessary support with a view to possible deradicalisation and reintegration, writes PET.
The government has set up a task force that has been in Syria to assess the possibilities of repatriating people with connections to Denmark.
These are the conclusions from this, which have been presented at a press conference on Tuesday evening in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
