Spirits of the judge and the police you in the neck because you owe money? So it seems that you can relax - a little yet in any case.
the Courts are like the rest of Denmark passed in emergency response, and it means that the Judge provisionally treating only urgent cases that can not be postponed.
the Extra Leaf has been in contact with several judicial and police districts, which all report that the so-called debtor-cases is the army:
- as soon As we got the message about having to close down, were taken in agreement with the police that they are up to and with 27. march does not come to the court with the politifremstillede debtors, says the president of the tribunal by the court of Aarhus, Bodil Ruberg, to Ekstra Bladet.
Politifremstillede debtors are people who have been summoned by the bailiff, not turned up and therefore been called for.
At the Funen police says press officer Sunniva Pedersen:
- It is closed, They treat only critical and urgent cases, and it is to owe money is not a part of the cases. Therefore, we can not bring the debtors into and do not go after them.
- So if the police in connection with the other cases take someone who is wanted by the court, are they not arrested?
- No, you will probably let them go, unless there is an extraordinary case and a very large amount, it sounds.
chief press officer, Thomas Kristensen of the national Police confirms that these relationships are applicable across the country.
- We do current priorities of our tasks. In the situation we are in now, is both the prison and probation service and the courts subject to specific conditions. Therefore, a priority we also, of course, after it. It will say in relation to who we r.ex. takes out the and download.
- We give priority to, of course, as always, serious crime, and everything that has to do with keeping peace and order in society, but similarly, there are some cases that can be downgraded - including cases to court, because fogedretterne, of course, also has closed.
- there Are reported, generally, that if you, as a policeman stands with a debtor, so one should not bring him in?
- It is clear that we do not take people in, when the Judge has closed. It does not make sense.
At the commission informs the chief communications officer, Lars Peter Schaumburg-Levy, that the critical cases on fogedområdet are things that can not be postponed, for example, the pick-up of children who are to be smuggled out of the country etc.
- The cases which, unfortunately, not pt. can, the priority is execution activities, including, for example, skyldnersager, as they tend to involve, to be held physical meetings between the court staff and citizens.
At the Copenhagen city Court is the trick as the other places, that the execution activities are downgraded, but if the police suddenly are faced with a debtor, 'we'll do it also'.
Aspiring, debt-ridden danes should not rejoice too early. Reality will catch up with them, the promise of the Copenhagen Police vicepolitiinspektør, Jakob Søndergaard, which, incidentally, does not want to go into the specific priorities that will be carried out in these days.
- But there is no one who owes money, which will be forgotten, sounds.
the Court's emergency preparedness
has basically shut down from 13. march and two weeks forward.
the individual dishes, to organize the work, but generally, they only should carry out 'critical tasks'.
that all court proceedings can be postponed is being postponed.
"the Danish Courts will attend to critical matters, as special cases, which are bound by deadlines, or are particularly invasive. It is not possible to give an exhaustive list, but examples of critical areas is bl.a. grundlovsforhør, the application, criminal proceedings with pre-trial detainees, which the pga. principle of proportionality or scale can not be postponed, enforcing that can not be postponed, tinglysningssager, as well as the particular urgency of the bankruptcy proceedings."
"some hovedforhandlinger in criminal and civil matters, most of the execution activities, change of estate, and notary-business."
