UN Human Rights Chief Michelle Bachelet criticises the Danish government’s plan to place criminal migrants on a deserted island. According to her, it is not good to stigmatise migrants in this way.
About a week ago Denmark’s Finance Minister Kristian Jensen announced that criminal foreigners in the future will be placed on an uninhabited island in anticipation of expulsion.
After the island has been cleared of swine fever. The migrants will be allowed to leave the island during the day but must stay there at night. The decision was taken in conjunction with budget negotiations with the Danish People’s party.
“Hooray!”, wrote the party’s Søren Espersen on Twitter after the decision. However, the plan is now being criticised by UN Human Rights Director Michelle Bachelet, who says she is seriously concerned.
