Regardless of the Chinese Communist Party’s threats, young Danish politician Thomas Rohden wants to keep prosecuting the CCP’s crime against humanity. On March 6, 2021, Danish commentators of China disclosed to media outlets that the Danish Ministry of Intelligence have advised them not to travel to countries that have signed the extradition agreements with the Communist Party of China. These commentators of China include at least four Danish figures, among whom two are members of the Parliament.
Thomas Rohden, the Chairman of the cross-political Danish China-Critical Society, was stopped by the Danish intelligence officials during a campaign in early February, warning him of threats from the CCP and the risk of being extradited to the CCP if he left the country. He told the Danish television station, TV2, that he was surprised when the Danish Police Intelligence Service (PET) told him that he was under surveillance by the Chinese Communist Party. Some politicians expressed sadness that he and three other critics of the CCP were restricted in their freedom of movement and unable to travel freely around the world. The other three commentators on the list were: Uffe Elbæk from the Liberal Green Party, Katarina Ammitzbøll from the Conservative People’s Party, and a conservative young politician Anders Storgaard. The four activists have been monitored by the Chinese Communist Party for helping pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong in different ways.
Thomas Rohden represents the young Danish generation’s vigilance against the communist dictatorship and their actions firmly against it. He sees the travel warnings as bullying, intimidation, and threat used by the Communist Party to against his critics that oppose them.
“When a small fish like me has to be within their reach, you know how aggressive the Communist Chinese state is against its opponents,” he told the Jyllands-Posten. Rohden said that despite the intimidation, the cross-political Danish China-Critical Society will continue its activities to expose the CCP.
The PET did not want to comment on the Jyllands-Posten interview with Mr. Rohden. However, Danish Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod told the newspaper: “I must emphasize that in Denmark, the freedom of speech and assembly of parliamentarians is guaranteed by the constitution. The constitution applies to parliamentarians and individuals, and the Danish government is fully protected by its constitutional rights.”
