Minister calls borgmesters automobile use strange

Interior minister Astrid Krag says to Ekstra Bladet, Ankestyrelsen considering going into borgmestersag.

the Social - and the Interior minister, Astrid Krag (P) says to Ekstra Bladet, she finds the case of Rødovres socialist mayor Erik Nielsen's use of the car "strange". As well as to Ankestyrelsen may be on the way into the case.

the Case is that the Extra Magazine has uncovered how the mayor uses a Mercedes bought by the municipality to run from his home to work. It must not be.

the Car is not in front of the mayor's home, but in a parking lot with ladestander at a nursing home quite close by.

- the Case looks, as it is made in your newspaper, immediately strange. And to see whether the rules are complied with, then it must in each case be assessed whether a car will apply as tjenestebil, says Astrid Krag to Ekstra Bladet.

And I know that Ankestyrelsen on the basis of Extra the Magazine's history is to consider, whether they go into the case.

the Car is a Mercedes-Benz GLC 350 Hybrid, which is leased for a four-year period at a price of 8050 dollars per month, or nearly 400.000 dollars throughout the term of the lease.

the official cars for mayors are to be used only when driving to and from work, if there is a driver that drives the car. In this way can the mayor take care of his work while driving. Otherwise, the car frikøbes for private use.

the Municipality and the mayor does not consider that there is a tjenestebil. And they do not believe that the mayor is running from his own home, as the car park is at the nearby nursing home.

If the rules are complied with to may now be examined by Ankestyrelsen, as Astrid Krag describes as "the first instance".

- They look at whether the rules are complied with. Therefore, I can not go more into the specific case in order not to be disqualified.

- But I want to stress that the rules must be kept, and now, I only know the case from your coverage. It seems strange, but now there is a specific assessment to, say, Astrid Krag to Ekstra Bladet.
