The Danish People’s Party wants an investigation into the Red-Green Alliance’s (Enhedslisten) support for the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP).

This is reported by bt.dk.

The chairman of the Danish People’s Party (Dansk Folkeparti), Morten Messerschmidt, on Wednesday morning asked the Speaker of the Folketing, Søren Gade, to initiate such an investigation.

This comes after the media bt.dk revealed that the DFLP organization executed a 21-year-old man, Joshua Mollel from Tanzania, who was an intern at a dairy, during the terrorist attack on Israel on October 7.

Morten Messerschmidt also believes that if it turns out that illegalities have been committed, the case should be handed over to the police.

The Danish People’s Party’s call for an investigation is supported by the Denmark Democrats (Danmarksdemokraterne) and the ruling party Venstre.

The left-wing party, the Red-Green Alliance, has for years supported the DFLP with aid funds and funds from the Institute for Parties and Democracy (DIPD).

After stories began circulating in the press following the October 7 attack that the DFLP had been involved in the attack, the Red-Green Alliance decided to suspend all future cooperation with the organization. In this context, the party’s executive committee representative, Rasmus Holme, stated:

“We are deeply distressed by the information that part of an organization with which we previously cooperated allegedly participated in the attack on October 7. This is absolutely terrible – and we distance ourselves from it in the strongest possible terms.”

“Neither we nor the DIPD believe that there is anything to indicate that Danish development funds were used for anything other than what was intended. Our aid cooperation with the three organizations in the West Bank was aimed at educating young people in democracy, human rights, and gender equality.”

“But it is clear that we must learn from this. Our task now is to bring out all the information about what happened and ensure that such cooperation never happens again.”
