Danish police have charged 14 people for sharing a video on social media purportedly showing the murder of Danish hiker Louisa Vesterager Jespersen and her Norwegian friend Maren Ueland in Morocco last December, Danish Radio reports.
The video, shared by 14 Danes, 6 of whom were minors, showed the beheading of Jespersen with what appears to be a kitchen knife.
12 of the people were charged with unauthorised disclosure and invasion of privacy, which can be punishable with up to three years’ imprisonment. The remaining 2 were charged with publicly approving of the killing of the 2 women, that's punishable with fines or up to two years’ imprisonment.
The Danish Intelligence Service, PET, previously verified the killing video that reportedly flourished on Danish social media. The Danish police advised the public not to watch the video and delete it if one happens to be in possession of it.
15 Moroccan men were charged for the attack classified as a terrorist attack. Despite the fact that the suspected killers swore allegiance to Daesh, the Moroccan intelligence service later rejected the idea that murder was coordinated by the so-called "Islamic State".
Had the video not been shared, the killers of these young women might never have been arrested for this gruesome crime. The Moroccan authorities were pressured into finding the killers because of the sensation generated by the video.
The liberal "thought police" are irate about this video because it shows what’s really happening, and anyone who tries to wake anyone up will be charged with "hate" crimes and other nonsense.
And to prove that this beheading video won’t deter other young women from backpacking in Morocco, the liberal Independent news site in the UK is promoting backpacking trips to Morocco for single young women in celebration of International Women’s Day.
