After being declared unwanted in Denmark 58-year-old Moroccan Said Mansour was sent back to Morocco on Friday, Samhällsnytt reports.
Mansour is twice sentenced for incitement to terrorism, and in 2016 he was deprived of his Danish citizenship and sentenced to expulsion.
He was also sentenced for paying tribute to al-Qaeda and 2014, he received four years in prison.
“I am very pleased that through the expulsion of Said Mansour we send a clear signal to the outside world.”, says Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen.
“Criminal foreigners who undermine our values and even promote terrorism have no place in Danish society,” he continues.
At the Danish People’s Party, immigrant spokesperson Martin Henriksen is pleased that Mansour is no longer in Denmark.
“So we got rid of yet another Islamist and that is a good feeling. We have been fighting this for this for a long time. Now he will probably end up in a boring cell in a lousy Moroccan prison and it suits us well”, he says.
Minister for Migration, Inger Støjberg, is also pleased with the expulsion.
“He has used his time in Denmark to betray us, and he has tried to undermine and destabilise Denmark and therefore he does not belong here”, she says.
