The Supreme Court has refused to hear the appeal of an army intelligence officer who leaked a video last year showing Danish soldiers looking on as Iraqi forces mistreated captives.

Captain Anders Kærgaard has been ordered to pay 500 kroner per week until he reveals the name of the person who recorded the video.

He and his lawyers argue that the fine amounts to punishing him for acting in the public’s interest.
