AFTER ONE MONTH: NAMES OF COUNSELS FOR THE DEFENDANTS IN TAX CASE AMOUNTING TO 37,4 OR 37,5 MILLION DKK ARE STILL UNKNOWN

June 27, 2017

A month ago two Danish men were arrested and charged with tax fraud amounting to 37,4 or 37,5 million DKK.
One of them, a Danish expatriate living in the USA was arrested on arrival at Copenhagen Airport.
At this moment, one month later, it is still unknown what lawyers have been appointed as counsels for the defendants.
Why are the names of these two lawyers being kept secret?
On June 19 a judge in Lyngby ruled that the two men were going to remain in custody for a further four weeks.
The case is spectacular because somehow it is related to the much grander Danish case about fraud with the refunding of dividend tax amounting to staggering 12,3 billion DKK. This according to Danish Serious Fraud Office (SØIK). However no details were revealed.

QUESTIONS
Why are the news media repeatedly failing in reporting the names of the two counsels for the defence?
Why don’t the authorities state who the lawyers are?
Does The Danish Bar and Law Society agree with this policy of secrecy?
Does Conservative Minister of Justice Søren Pape Poulsen?
Are secret counsels for the defendants the latest development in Danish administration of justice?
If yes, what next? / UD
