The Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET) revealed that some Danish jihadis fighting for the Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria are receiving sickness and disability benefits, furnished by Denmark’s taxpayers, which cannot be terminated under current laws.
“It is a huge scandal that we disburse money from the welfare fund in Denmark for people who go to Syria,” Danish Employment Minister Troels Lund Poulsen told Berlingske newspaper. …
The jihadis…exploit a loophole in the welfare system by claiming to be too sick or disabled to work, and thereby qualify to receive an early pension. They then travel to Syria to wage jihad and the government cannot do anything to stop the payments.
