‘SURVIVOR’ IN DENMARK




Serhat TUNAR –TDO- Denmark's government says it intends to isolate dozens of "unwanted" migrants on a remote island which is two miles out to sea that once used for researching contagious animals. The island of Lindholm spans just 17 acres and was used since 1926 for laboratories, stables, and a crematorium for dead animals, according to The Insider.

Nowadays, it houses a veterinary institute for the Technical University of Denmark, and runs a ferry service named "the Virus." The Danish government announced last week it intends to decontaminate the island in 2019 and have the facility ready to house up to 125 migrants by the end of 2021.

In a statement from the Danish government said the "return center" on Lindholm will house migrants who have been denied refugee status, but who cannot be deported to their home countries due to danger. The island will also house migrants who the Danish government has sought to deport due to their criminal records, but whose home countries refuse to accept them.
