The Danish government plans to adopt a law on the suppression of the ghetto
The Danish government on Thursday will consider a bill to combat disadvantaged areas of the country, the so-called “ghetto”, reports the edition Local.
As the newspaper notes, previously Prime Minister of Denmark Lars løkke Rasmussen in his speech, timed to the New year, announced that the government plans to take measures to “put an end to the ghetto”. On Thursday, the government will consider the first bill associated with the execution of this task.
According to the newspaper, according to the bill, punishment for certain crimes in crime-ridden areas can be doubled. “The police will be able to enter the zone, which will apply a double penalty in extraordinary circumstances”, — writes the edition.
Also, according to government plans, the housing companies will be able to refuse housing to tenants with a criminal record for criminal offenses over the past five years or evict accused of committing a crime. For civil servants, not informing the authorities about the poor conditions of children living in areas that can be imposed harsh punishment from a penalty before imprisonment.
In the framework of the bill is proposed to facilitate city departments access to the personal information of residents of the affected areas. Also, the state may reduce the amount of social benefits to those who moved to live in the ghetto, and the city authorities will not be able to resettle in such areas those who lose their jobs.
