Ghoncheh Ghavami

Sometime we everthing for granted and it is easy being a Dane living in the most developed country and culture in the world.

Others don’t have it as easy.

This poor woman has served months in jail for trying to watch a male Volleyball match. Crazy! That is all what is to be said.

Week 11 and the lesson from the U.S.

In Uncategorized on November 16, 2009 at 05:44

The trial seems to be started early December.  This week we learned that foreign powers spy on Danish citizens inside our country. Normally they should inform our authorities before they do so, but it was not the case with Camilla Broe. How many Danes are targeted in similar way?  We also learned that it was DEA’s plan to lure her out of the country where she should be abducted to Florida.

When we are talking about extradition, 23 CIA agents were convicted in Italy for an illegal abduction of a man. Are the U.S. government going to extradite these people to Italy so they can serve their sentences when they were convicted in a fair trial where the U.S. government paid the legal fees regardless of the fact that they denied all involvement? Do they support the fight against crimes or are they only interested in the cheap headlines they can produce when a couple of criminals in their jails state that a single Danish mother is a druglord just to get out of jail fast and act on this claim? It is easy to prove what their stand of fighting crime is. If the 23 CIA agents end up in Italy serving time, we believe them. If not we are simply talking double standard.

Enough about  the Camilla Broe case. Let us turn our eyes upon Denmark.

We have some kind of summit in Copenhagen in Denmark. Our politicians don’t want the population to be involved, so they can some tough laws on the way, so people can stay away to avoid the risk of being caught up in a mass arrest like they did on Noerrebro a couple of years ago where ordinary citizens coming home after getting a late pizza were arrested along with some youth fighting for a house to play music in. The youth have since got their house but about 200 people are trying to avoid being convicted for just being on public street in front of their own house. What should they have done. Starved until the riots were over? If that were their choice the criminals – the youth participating in the riots – would have won for real.

The headlines in the newspapers today speak on lack of space in our prisons. Here is a real problem. We have some politicians who are totally unaware of the cost of running a modern society. Look at the United States. They know that you have to lock 1 percent of the entire population up in order to keep the society safe.

Denmark can house some 4.000 people in jail. Our jails are full due to some youth gangs attacking biker gangs and the worlds toughest weapon law where you can get 7 days in jail for just stopping for a burger when you have a Stanley knife in your car just purchased in the local supermarket. It doesn’t matter that you bought it to fix something in your home. It is a serious crime if you stop between the shop and your home.

Our politicians should have built jails for 50,000 people. Why travel around the world to find solutions so solve a so-called gang war, when they can read on the Internet that they just have a housing problem?

Build some jails! We already have the laws in place and the increased hostility against youth just trying to socialize and have fun, will in due time increase the need for lock-down continuation schools where youth can be detained away from friends and family until they are 18 and old enough to drink a beer.

I have to attack our politicians for not doing their job good enough. They cannot introduce strict laws which makes it almost impossible to live a life in Denmark without having been in jail at least one time without building the number of jails needed to do the job.

Denmark is on the fast track to be a modern society. It means 1 percent of the population in jail at all time. Find the money and built the jails!!

Only then we will respect you (and fear you) like you want.

Week 7 and the climate summit

In Uncategorized on October 19, 2009 at 05:04

Now the show trial in Florida is close to be postphoned due to the honeymoon by the prosecutor. Maybe the prosecution believe that if she is kept longer in detention, she will break down and confess so they can avoid the trial at all. They could use a Nolo Contendere from her. They know that there is a problem with the dates of the alleged crimes. They should have acted faster when they sat down and cooked the list of charges against her.

Anyhow the public in Denmark is about to forget her. Precautions have been made so the number of exchange students have dropped. Families have learned from her case. Not for a second could we are of possible victims in other countries due to smuggling of drugs. We simply don’t have the surplus when we have to struggle to survive without early retirement (“Efterloen”). In anyone doubted the  necessity of these precautions, they should read the newspapers. We saw another horrorstory yesterday, when a exchange student returned home before time after having been set up by a exchange student agency operating as a contact agency.

However the news right now is about the climate summit. As part of a dirty deal with India we got the summit, it is claimed.

But as it always is here in Denmark the summit is close to become an event that we have to get finished with without huge results. Domestic politics is close to get the climate minister to resign and conspiracies among officials have already caused the first officials to resign.

It seems that the most important for the government is to use the summit as an excuse to introduce new tougher laws against the citizens. They don’t give a damn what kind of summit they host.

I am already afraid to leave for work today. A single stanley-knife in my car can send me to jail for 7 days. That’s is how tough our weapon laws are. The new laws introduced in connection with the summit enables the police to detain me for 12 hours for writing this blog without explaining me what I am accused of. If I am on my way to my work in Copenhagen and my car ends up being trapped in a group of protesters, I will go to jail for 40 days if I don’t choose to run protesters down if the police orders people away, but if I choose to run protesters down I will kill people and go to jail for that.

The climate summit is a loose-loose situation. For the government, for the climate, for me.
