Denmark’s prime minister slams asylum status for ‘Lucky’ the pirate

COPENHAGEN: Denmark’s prime minister expressed her indignation Tuesday after a Nigerian who has been found guilty of engaging in an exchange of fire with Danish sailors was granted asylum in the Nordic country.
The affair, which dates to 2021, has been a long-running source of embarrassment for the Danish government.
“I cannot defend this decision,” said Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, whose administration has taken a hard line against migration and asylum requests.
