Denmark will not seize jewelry from Ukrainian refugees: Prime minister

Denmark will not seize jewelry from Ukrainian refugees unlike Syrians and Africans who sought refuge in the country from 2016 onwards, its prime minister said Friday.

“Ukraine is in our immediate region. It is part of Europe. It's in our backyard,” Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen told public broadcaster PR. “Denmark has a special responsibility in relation to the Ukrainians, who are on the run from Russian missiles and cluster bombs, which now also hit civilian targets.”

DR noted the country adopted a law in 2016, known as jewelry law, that gave authorities the right to seize valuables and large sums of money from refugees. “Clearly, there is a difference between refugees and how we receive them,” it said.

The broadcasting service said the government is working on a special law that would allow Ukrainian refugees to benefit from social subsidies and have their children easily enrolled at schools.
