Danish asylum centres criticised for letting underaged married couples stay together
Malmö Municipality recently came under fire for letting child brides reside together with their adult spouses. And now asylum centres in Denmark are grappling with the same problem.
The Foreign Ministry has confirmed in a statement that it has processed a number of such cases.
"The Immigration Department has experienced quite a few cases in which minors (under-18s) seeking asylum have a legally valid marriage with another minor asylum-seeker or with an adult spouse, in which the parties can therefore fundamentally stay together at a reception centre," read the statement.
