A US travel ban on a Danish man provides evidence that the two countries exchange intelligence information about possible terrorists, according to University of Copenhagen security issues expert Flemming Splidsboel. The man in question, 24-year-old Tobias Linde Schanz, who has no criminal record, was barred from travelling to the US in July. US authorities declined to state why the travel ban was issued, but Schanz's mobile telephone number was previously held by an individual who had connections to possible terrorists, and who was interviewed by the domestic intelligence agency PET on a number of occasions. “If the phone number [Schanz] has overtaken was previously used by someone PET was interested in that’s likely the reason for his being banned.” – Politiken
