Former Danish Defense Minister Claus Hjort Frederiksen has been charged with leaking state secrets just days after it was revealed the head of the country’s intelligence agency had been arrested.

Frederiksen confirmed the charges against him on Friday in a statement released by the Danish Liberal Party stating, “I can confirm that I have been charged under the Criminal Code article 109 for violating the limits of my freedom of speech. I have expressed myself as a member of parliament on a political matter and I have nothing further to add at this stage.”

The former defence minister went on to add that he would “never dream of doing anything that could harm Denmark or Denmark’s interests,” Danish broadcaster DR reports.

The broadcaster stated that Fredericksen had been appointed a lawyer earlier in the week and could face up to 12 years in prison for disclosure of state secrets, which falls under Denmark’s treason legislation, known as the “traitor clause.”

The exact details of the charges are not known but there is speculation that they may be related to a 2020 interview given by Fredericksen in which he seemed to confirm the existence of a secret spying programme in which Danish authorities work with the United States.

The existence of the spying programme was reported on last year by DR and other Danish media who stated that the Danish Defence Intelligence Service (FE) in coordination with the U.S. National Security Administration (NSA), had spied on Danish citizens and European leaders, including former German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The announcement from Frederiksen comes just days after it was revealed that the head of the FE, Lars Findsen, had been arrested and had been in police custody for around a month over allegations he had been leaking sensitive data along with other current and former FE employees.

Findsen, who allowed his name to be published in connection with the case, released a statement saying, “I want the charges brought forward and I plead not guilty. This is completely insane.”

The case against Findsen is also speculated to be connected to the FE and NSA spying allegations.

Report: Justice Sonia Sotomayor Working Remotely Because Gorsuch Refuses to Wear Face Mask in Court

US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is still working remotely because fellow justice Neil Gorsuch refuses to wear a face mask.

Triple vaxxed Sotomayor, 67, is overweight and has diabetes so she is at high risk for severe illness or death from Covid.

Someone should tell Sotomayor that a face mask is not going to stop her from getting Covid.

It was pretty jarring earlier this month when the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court took the bench for the first time since the omicron surge over the holidays. All were now wearing masks. All, that is, except Justice Neil Gorsuch. What’s more, Justice Sonia Sotomayor was not there at all, choosing instead to participate through a microphone setup in her chambers.

Sotomayor has diabetes, a condition that puts her at high risk for serious illness, or even death, from COVID-19. She has been the only justice to wear a mask on the bench since last fall when, amid a marked decline in COVID-19 cases, the justices resumed in-person arguments for the first time since the onset of the pandemic.

Now, though, the situation had changed with the omicron surge, and according to court sources, Sotomayor did not feel safe in close proximity to people who were unmasked. Chief Justice John Roberts, understanding that, in some form asked the other justices to mask up.

A couple weeks ago Sonia Sotomayor falsely claimed that over 100,000 children are hospitalized and in serious condition because of Covid.

“Many are on ventilators,” Sotomayor said.

This is a lie and the Supreme Court still has not corrected the record.
