Former PET boss about terrorsigtelser: They lack sharpness

There are missing details in the charges against the suspects, evaluate the PET chef Hans Jørgen Bonnichsen.

a total Of 21 persons were on Wednesday arrested in a large-scale police operation, and Thursday is a total of eight people before a judge in grundlovsforhør in Copenhagen.

the Police Intelligence service (PET) suspect them to have been in the process of planning a terrorist attack in Denmark or abroad.

the Eight are currently being produced in Copenhagen city Court, where the charges is that they have planned to manufacture bombs and purchase weapons to carry out one or more terrorist acts.

But the charges lacks detail, says the former operative head of PET, Hans Jørgen Bonnichsen.

- They are not particularly sharp and doesn't tell anything about the place, means or methods. It's diffuse charges. Therefore, it is difficult to say anything on the matter. But much indicates that they are (aimed, red.) have been in the initial forberedelseshandling, he says.

the Police action, however, could be it, as Hans Jørgen Bonnichsen call a "crusher".

- Whatever the result, and then shaking to the environment in such a way with the clenched fist, to say: "Stop. We are just in the neck of you." It is in itself an excellent result, " he says.

For a PET-boss is the primary focus not on the suspects get a punishment. It is instead about whether PET can stop the suspects in a timely manner, explains Hans Jørgen Bonnichsen.

- PET prevents, counteracts and prevents. It requires insight. They have a motive? They have the majority. But they have the knowledge, skills and time?

- Has the PET so that sufficient knowledge, then it may well be, you don't have evidence for a conviction, but then the "crusher" to them, and tear the organization up. But let us now see. It may be, it leads to an indictment and judgment of conviction, he says.

One 29-year-old man is made in connection with the case in the Court in Odense, but here are the charges not read out, since the prosecution asked for dobbeltlukkede doors, which the judge accepted.

The 29-year-old is Thursday afternoon jailed for four weeks until 9. January 2020.

because of the dobbeltlukkede doors, it is not known how he stands to the charges.
