Imam who compared gays to paedophiles is to be legally charged


Denmark is pursuing charges against the Muslim preacher for putting gays in one row with peadophiles. The Danish prosecutors are charging the preacher who cannot be named due to legal reasons. The comments were apparently made to the media in the wake of the the Orlando massacre in June 2016. The prosecutor Jan Reckendorff informed that the imam is going to be charged of making comments deemed threatening, insulting or degrading to a group of persons because of their race, colour, national or ethnic origin, belief or sexual orientation. If his guilt is proven he will be fined or imprisoned for 2 years. Ms Reckendorff told Associated Press that the remarks “were so rough” that the issue would would a court of law must now decide whether Danish law has been violated. No trial date has been set.
