Minister proposes seizing valuables from refugees

18 December 2015, 15:11

Ankara - Denmark's integration minister says police should be able to seize valuables from asylum-seekers to pay for their lodging, language classes, health care and job training courses.

Inger Stoejberg with the center-right Liberal government says a law proposal aims at bringing refugees in line with unemployed Danes, who can only get social benefits if they sell any assets above $1 453.

Stoejberg said on Friday that wedding rings, watches or items "with a sentimental value," should not be taken.

The proposal, which has the support of the anti-immigrant Danish People's Party, Denmark's second largest group is expected to pass next month.

So far, more than 9 000 people have sought shelter in 2015 in Denmark, which recently cut social benefits for refugees by up to 50%.
