Danish government invites Ayaan Hirsi Ali to Denmark and pay for protection
Danish invitation to Hirsi Ali
Culture Minister Brian Mikkelsen (conservatives) sends a direct request to danish municipalities in which he urges them to invite the somali born writer Ayaan Hirsi Ali to live in Denmark.
It would be logical to invite her in the context of the new free city arrangement for persecuted writers for which the Danish government is preparing a draft for a new law.
'Ayaan Hirsi Ali will be the first on the top of a list of writers that in my opinion ought to be invited to Denmark. She has been a prime fighter for freedom of expression, and she has also been exposed to direct personal threats threats against her own life, ' the Danish Minister of Cultural Affairs Brian Mikkelsen was quoted for saying.
"It is clear that Hirsi Ali will crave an extraordinary expense. We will look at that positively", said Brian Mikkelsen.
