Denmark: Boy charged for anti-Islamic posters

A 15 year old boy from Rønne will appear in court next week. He's charged with trying to distribute racist posters.

The Bornholm court says that the 15 year old is charged with having produced posters and fliers at home with the titles: "Denmark will be a Muslim country?", "Denmark wake up".

The posters said: "Yes to an Islam-free country" and "Send the Pakis home".

The boy wrote, for example, that Muslims "preach to renounce all our freedoms," and that they advanced "devastating the cities with gangs and drugs."

The 15 year old is also charged for copying the materials in a school in Rønne on March 13, in order to hang them up in public places in Rønne and giving them out to people in the street.

The prosecution demands that the boy be imprisoned, says chief prosecutor Bendte Pedersen Lund.

Due to the boy's age the Bornholm Youth Center was called in to the court meeting.

Breaking the racism act can lead to a fine or up to two years in prison.
