In a press release, according to the Ankestyrelsen:

'Ankestyrelsen have been aware that Rødovre Municipality, according to information in the press make a car available for the mayor of Rødovre Municipality.

the Information in the presseomtalen provides Ankestyrelsen occasion to re-examine whether the scheme is in conflict with the law.'
