The Danish government now has the authority to withdraw the citizenship of jihadists who’ve traveled abroad to fight for militant jihadist groups.
The new law gives the country’s immigration minister the authority to revoke the passports of citizens who’ve joined foreign terrorist organizations by simply informing the terrorist of the decision via the internet, Danish newspaper Extra Bladet reports.
The law was passed on Thursday by a majority in the parliament.
MPs from the Conservatives, the New Civil and Liberal Alliance voted in favor of the bill, while the Social Liberals, the Red-Green Alliance, and the Alternative voted against it.
SF abstained from the vote.
