Baku, January 26, AZERTAC

The Danish parliament has passed a package of measures to deter refugees from seeking asylum, including confiscating valuables to pay for their stay, despite protests from international human rights organisations, according to Al-Jazeera.

The measures, which also include extending family reunification among refugees from one year to three years, were passed by an overwhelming majority on Tuesday.

The bill, which allows the confiscation of refugees' cash exceeding 10,000 kroner ($1,450), has prompted comparisons to Nazi Germany, which confiscated the goods of Jews during World War II.
