A day before US President Donald Trump urged EU allies to take back over 800 Daesh* fighters that had been captured in Syria and put them on trial.

According to the DPA news agency, citing representative of Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen, Copenhagen won’t take back Daesh fighters to stand trial in the country.

“We are talking about the most dangerous people in the world. We should not take them back”, he stressed, adding that Trump’s statement was premature, as the situation in Syria is far from stable.

Earlier on Sunday a spokeswoman for Germany’s interior ministry addressed the US president’s appeal.

“In principle, all German citizens and those suspected of having fought for so-called Daesh* have the right to return”, she said, adding, however, that the condition for that was consular access for the suspects.

The German official also said that Iraq had shown an interest in having some of the jihadists fighters from Germany put on trial. “But in Syria, the German government cannot guarantee legal and consular duties for jailed German citizens due to the armed conflict there”, she concluded.

Earlier in January, Paris reportedly agreed on repatriating at least 130 French Daesh fighters being detained in northeast Syria by US-backed Kurdish soldiers, so they could face trial in France.

The Daesh never showed any mercy to their captured prisoners. Apply same rules that they applied. Jordanian Pilot was burnt, Kurdish Syrian & Iraqi soldiers fighters were lined up or made to lie down in shallow graves with their back up and hands tied and shot in the head or machine gunned, tortured inhumanly, throats slit, Yazidi girls & women raped & exploited, drowned, homosexuals were thrown down from the cement plant kilns or from top of tall buildings. These are very quick & permanent solutions. Why bring in Human rights & sympathy?

Actually, AFAIK, there are no extradition treaties with either Syria or Iraq. Then : – Since the roaches did acts of treason towards their countries of origin, these shall be deprived of their nationality. – Actually, anyone standing against our constitution(s) should not even be admitted inside our border(s) – We don’t want these rascals around. – According to the Hague Convention, irregular combatants can be executed on the spot when captured. – Since these creeps did crimes in Syria or Iraq, it’s up to Syrian/Iraqi justice to decide about their fate and frankly, except some bleeding-heart idiots and eventually… Read more »

Merkel is the most naive leader in Europe…only a fool would right now take the US government & it’s crazy demands seriously. Congratulations Denmark for standing up for what they think to keep it’s citizens safe. Why don’t the US take these awful minded rodents if they feel it’s the most decent thing to do, or better still, send them to Israel to live amongst it’s jewish population. These decisions by in large are orchestrated by jews in Washington to destabilise Europe by all means….

The opposition Leader for most of the rest agree in that. I dont. We should take the ones, which has danish nationality, and not because we like to have them, but because its unfair for the countries incl the SDFs which already has many problems, to be the only keeping those behind bars. Several of those even has cheated when they have left to fight as ISIS using our wellfare sytem for themselves, their wifes and children. Thats not allowed as well. If You get great parts of the wellfare, You also has to be avaiblale for jobs in Denmark… Read more »

I dont know is that one is for me. But if You dont the reasons for new fx little PKKs, You have not made any solution eliminating those. You have not. You have to change the reasons for some few Kurds not only disagree with the Turks, but also becomes violent amking the Turkish police and military forces violent – or the opposite way. Many many kurds would be much more well educated, if they get it in their own first language and many by that had better incomes. The reasons for extremisme therefore gets less supporters. Its very effective… Read more »

Denmark do have agreements with several countries. If they are convicted there in relative fair trial, they can come home and be in danish jails. They mainly gets better conditions and share money for others. The prisoners also can see their families now and then. Its very true its very difficult to proove crimes done in other countries. But we can – as written above – pubish for fx illegal taking money for wellfare – and for the danish passport-ones, its strictly forbidden to be soldiers/mercenaires. Pesmerga soldiers get lower ounishment, because they are not against us 🙂 But as… Read more »
