The Social Liberal Justice Spokeswoman Lone Dybkjær says that a tightening of the weapons law has gone too far when a young man is sentenced to seven days in prison for having two work-related stanley knives in his vehicle.

“The proposal was crazy precisely because it could hit someone like this young man. When you are given a sentence of seven days in prison, you’re more or less finished in this society in a wide range of situations,” says Dybkjær, referring to the introduction of minimum sentences for weapons possession, which her party voted against.

Danish People’s Party
The Justice Spokesman for the Danish People’s Party Peter Skaarup, whose party supported tightening the law, also questions the case.

“The idea was not to hit people who use a knife in connection with their work and have left the knife in their car,” Skaarup says.

Young man
At issue is the case of a 19-year-old petrol station worker Haris Cehic who had been on his way from work to pick up a friend at a discotheque when police stopped and searched his car, finding the two stanley knives in a car door compartment. The tools are used at his petrol station to open cardboard boxes.
