THE DANISH government have now been compared after pushing through contentious strategies to take jewellery and cash from refugees.
Migrants may be required to hand over valuables if they arrive in the country with more than 10,000 kroner – around GBP1,000.
The original plans have been watered down, with refugees no longer required to give up sentimental things like wedding rings, last month after criticism when it was announced.
But the Danes have been accused of conduct like that of Nazi Germany, who infamously stripped Jews of their possessions at concentration camps during the Holocaust.
The UN refugee agency UNHCR said it “could fuel fear, xenophobia and similar limitations that will reduce – rather than expand – the asylum space internationally”.
