The Copenhagen police has released five men detained earlier today in connection with an investigation into threats against the Danish People’s Party Leader Pia Kjærsgaard.
"We have released those concerned. We do not have evidence to support a remand in connection with the investigation that has been carried out," says Ass. Comm. Jørgen Aabye.
The five were detained following receipt of an anonymous letter by the Danish People's Party which included five names, and which the party sent on to the police. Police would not say whether the five names in the letter were identical with those detained.
One of those detained will be sent to a remand hearing later in the day, but not in connection with Pia Kjærsgaard.
"Something to do with counterfeit money," Aabye says.
