The deputy police inspector Jens Møller Jensen said, according to Ekstra Bladet tabloid, that the suspect will be charged with financially supporting a terror organisation and faces ten years in prison.

“As far as I know, two people have been arrested and are now being interrogated,” Jensen told Ekstra Bladet.

De Humanitære Hjerter reportedly sold stickers featuring the IS logo. This is the first time that a person in Denmark has been charged with funding IS.
