DF politician convicted of sharing tweet about violence case

DF politician convicted of sharing tweet about violence case

In July 2020, Erik Høgh-Sørensen retweeted a tweet from the twitter profile @friedanske, which dealt with a case of violence from Sønderborg that was much talked about in the media.

The case of violence arose from a video that abounded on the Internet. Here, a 14-year-old boy was seen being subjected to violence. The boy was then forced to kiss the perpetrator’s shoes.

The profile @friedanske tweeted on July 9, 2020 about the case. The tweet contained both the picture of the perpetrator, his name, and the name of the pizzeria that his family ran.

Erik Høgh-Sørensen Retweeted this. That is, he made his followers on Twitter aware of the tweet. Høgh-Sørensen currently has more than 1100 followers on Twitter. It’s about the same as @friedanske.

The politician has been acquitted of violating the perpetrator with his sharing of the picture.

He, on the other hand, has been found guilty of insulting the victim – the 14-year-old boy – even though his face was blurred in the picture.

The court states in its reasoning that the victim – despite blurring of the face – could still be recognized “in certain circles of the public”.

– It is a reprehensible verdict, which we immediately take to the High Court.

– I have, as it were, done nothing but the equivalent of cutting a newspaper article out of the newspaper and giving it to my neighbor, says Erik Høgh-Sørensen.

The case of violence from Sønderborg, from which it all originates, was last summer linked to a phenomenon called dominance violence.

The phenomenon has been particularly well-known in Sweden, where young people with an immigrant background have exposed victims to violence and humiliated them in various ways.

In the case from Sønderborg, the 16-year-old explained in court that he just forced his victim to kiss his shoe because he wanted to humiliate him.

It allegedly stemmed from a dispute over a girl who had previously been dating the 14-year-old and in whom the 16-year-old was interested.

The 16-year-old was sentenced to a two-year pedagogical course, where he had to be supervised for the first 16 months – in the first four constant supervision – and then an eight-month drop-out course.
