    Rich Danish criminals pay stand-ins to serve sentences
    By Julian Isherwood in Copenhagen
    (Filed: 30/01/2004)

    Lax security at Danish prisons is allowing criminals to hire impersonators to serve their sentences in their place. Wealthy felons have been exploiting Denmark's relaxed criminal justice regime under which there can be a period of months between a conviction and the start of a sentence.

    During these gaps, as many as 100 doubles are believed to have been hired to present themselves at prison gates to stand in for the real prisoners, earning up to £100 a day.

    The justice ministry launched an investigation yesterday into the scam disclosed by the Ekstra Bladet newspaper, which said an internal document circulated by the prison service showed widespread identity fraud.

    "The prison service has told me that it definitely knows of six cases, but in the light of the disclosures of about a hundred a year, there have to be changes in the system," said Lene Espersen, the justice minister.

    Mrs Espersen said the system was possible because prison authorities were not allowed to demand identity papers with pictures on them when admitting prisoners.

    "Some prisoners simply say they don't have a passport or other form of identity papers. They are then interrogated, but people lie and get away with it," she said.

    One of the bogus prisoners tracked down by Ekstra Bladet said it was "child's play" to take the place of a real inmate because prison authorities asked only to see a social security card - which does not bear a photograph - at the jail gates.
