“To counter the threat of serious cross-border crime, we are now strengthening the protection of the border against Sweden by introducing temporary border control and strengthening police efforts in border areas with Sweden,” Justice Minister Nick Haekkerup said at a news conference on Thursday.
The controls will begin on Nov. 12, he said, adding police would aim to avoid causing delays for the commuters.
Both countries are members of the European Union, which needs to approve the move.
Sovereign nations need permission to police their own borders. Very sovereign, eh?
