Denmark: Police Accountability Mechanisms in Denmark
Amnesty International is concerned that the mechanisms in Denmark for addressing alleged human rights violations by police officers fail to respect victims’ rights to redress and reparation. The current system fails to ensure that such allegations are investigated promptly, thoroughly, independently and impartially, that persons responsible for such violations are brought to justice, and that victims receive adequate reparation, including compensation. The five cases in this report highlight a range of alleged human rights violations, from excessive use of force, physical ill-treatment, to a death in custody.
