Denmark to Seize Valuables of Refugees Denmark to Seize Valuables of Refugees

The Danish Parliament has passed a package of measures to deter refugees from seeking asylum, including confiscating valuables to pay for their stay, despite protests from international human rights organizations. The measures, which also include extending family reunification among refugees from one year to three years, were passed by an overwhelming majority on Tuesday. The Council of Europe, a human rights watchdog, said the law could violate fundamental property rights, Al Jazeera reported.
