Both the prosecutor and defence lawyer involved in the case of a 15-year-old girl arrested in Kundby in northeast Zealand have agreed that the girl should be charged behind closed doors.

No information is coming out of the court room in Holbæk. The police arrested the girl at a home in Kundby yesterday. According to reports, she was found with explosives and may have been supporting terrorism.

“This is a very serious matter,” Peter Rostgaard Ahleson told Ekstra Bladet before the doors were closed. “Proceedings are at a very preliminary stage and we do not know if there are co-perpetrators at large.”


Bomb squad on the scene
Mid and West Zealand Police has worked with a bomb squad from Danish Defence since yesterday to thoroughly investigate a villa in Kundby yesterday.

The daily police report for the area showed that ambulance and local emergency services were also called to the scene.

No information forthcoming
The local police have declined to comment, and the allegations of explosives and terrorist activities have not been confirmed by the authorities.

“For investigative reasons police cannot say whether anything of interest was found or what specific information led to the investigations,” Mid and West Zealand Police wrote in its daily report.

PET, the Danish security and intelligence service, has also declined to comment on the case.
