DENMARK’S ‘SOFT TOUCH’ ON JIHADIS WHO RETURN FROM SYRIA
Rather than face terrorism charges, Danish jihadis who return to the European country from Syria are offered rehabilitation.
Unlike in Britain, where a handful of terrorism suspects have been detained after flying into the UK from Turkey, the Danish government enrols citizens in a rehabilitation programme.
More Danes travelled to Syria last year per head of population than any other European country except from Belgium.
Thirty per cent hailed from Aarhus, the country’s second largest city, where the rehabilitation programme was orchestrated.
Everyone who returns from war-torn countries is screened and offered treatment for shrapnel wounds as well as psychiatric care for trauma.
The families of those already in Syria are also given access to Skype.
It was intended for those who travelled to the Middle East with the intention of helping civilians oppressed by the Assad regime.
Some of those enrolled in the programme said they would have turned against the government if treated as a criminal.
Critics however fear the system, allegedly designed in anticipation of the breakdown of ISIS, will be abused.
