Socialistisk Folkeparti (SF) has demanded that the justice minister, Karen Hækkerup, investigates if there is any truth in former spy Morten Storm's allegations against domestic intelligence service PET in his book 'Agent Storm: My life inside al-Qaeda'.

In his memoirs written by two CNN journalists, Storm claims he saw PET agents spending tax money at strip clubs and on prostitutes when they were travelling.

"Public travel and purchasing sex are incompatible, and it's totally unacceptable to spend state money on it,"  the legal spokesperson for SF, Karian Lorenzen, told Metroexpress. 

That is something the minister will now have to account for."

Paid sex with company card
When Storm allegedly worked as a PET agent between 2006 and 2012, he travelled with the agency to Barcelona, Bangkok and Lisbon. He claims he saw PET agents buy sex every time.

"I also went to strip clubs and brothels with PET agents in Jakarta and Nairobi before missions," Storm told Metroxpress.

"They paid in cash or with their company credit card – Mola Consult, a PET cover – so they spent tax money on prostitutes. I was shocked to be honest. These were policemen with diplomatic passports."

Former PET boss shocked
Hans Jørgen Bonnichsen, the former operative head of PET, told the newspaper he had never been so shocked by anything in his 41 years in the service – if there is any truth to Storm's allegations.

"Under no circumstances would PET accept state money being used to pay for prostitutes," he said.

"That sounds completely far-fetched if tax money was used for such immortal activities."
