A Danish prisoner walked straight out of jail in Copenhagen wearing the burka of his visitor. The woman visiting the 30 year old man was stuck in jail after he walked out.
Arne Tornvig Christensen from Nyborg State Jail says to the Danish publication “Ekstra Bladet” that he isn’t interested in giving any details about how this could happen, except that they are investigating the embarrassing situation. The woman initially wearing the burka will not be kept in jail.
In some European countries the burka and the nikab have been criminalized while this simple piece of clothing has been taken advantage of by some criminals to commit their illegal activities.
In Manchester the outfit was used to rob jewelry shop earlier this summer. In Canada Burka Criminality still has not reached its peak, but when a child dressed up in a Burka to purchase alcohol at the local market, no one asked for ID and no one found it slightly suspicious that a person wearing a dress associated with conservative Islam wanted to buy alcohol.
