Business owners in Denmark are being urged to come forward if they have been intimidated by protection gangs, after a bar owner in Copenhagen took a stand on the issue.
The grandmother has been hailed as a heroine for refusing to pay and breaking the wall of silence surrounding the practice.
As I watched this report, with its talk of Danish “mafiosi” and protection rackets in Copenhagen, the first thing I thought (no, I knew) was that the BBC were not mentioning something very important about what was going on.
I was right. Guessed who those “mafiosi” are yet, where they’re from, what religion they are?
