(EUobserver) Denmark to send foreign criminals to remote island

(EUobserver) Foreign criminals sentenced to deportation from Denmark will in future be sent to the remote island of Lindholm, following a compromise between the country’s government and the anti-immigration Danish People’s Party on the country’s 2019 budget. The public has no access to the island, which has been used for research on viruses such as mad cow disease and swine fever. The research facilities will move to Copenhagen.
