Danish 'jewelry law' used to confiscate migrant cash

Denmark has used the controversial law to seize migrants assests for the first time since it was introduced in January.

The L87 or ‘jewelry bill’ allowed authorities to seize cash from five migrants who tried to enter the country with fake travel documents.

Authorities confiscated kr79,000 around €10,500.
