    Danish Radio reported that twelve persons were charged with unauthorised disclosure and invasion of privacy, punishable with up to three years’ imprisonment. The other two were charged with publicly expressing “joy or amusement” about the murders. This offence is punishable with fines or up to two years’ imprisonment.

    “The East Jutland Police have reviewed 118 reports from all over the country. This led to charges against a total of 14 people,” the police declared in a statement. Of the 14 Danes charged, six are minors.

    According to Danish Intelligence Service, PET, the beheading video had previously been shared widely on Danish social media, but Danish police advised the public to delete it. Specialists of the National Police Cyber ​​Crime Center (NC3) had been working round the clock to prevent the spread of the video.

    Despite the fact that no ruling has so far classified seeing and distributing the video as illegal, many may have already “broken the law” by sharing the grisly video, according to Viborg public prosecutor Kirsten Dyrmann, who tasked to research the extent of its distribution. Dyrmann admitted that the number of people who have seen and shared the video was “not insignificant” in January this year.

    Danish hiker Louisa Vesterager Jespersen (24) together with a Norwegian friend Maren Ueland (28) were murdered in the Atlas Mountains during their holiday in Morocco.

    The beheading of one of the two girls were shared on Facebook Messenger as well as on other social media platforms. The video showed the beheading of Jespersen with what appears to be a kitchen knife.

    Two of the twelve are under the age of 15, and according to Danish criminal law, they cannot face criminal charges because of their young age. Thus, only the remaining 12 people aged 15 and older will be facing legal action.

    Fifteen Moroccan men have meanwhile charged for the murders regarded as a terrorist attack after the suspects swore allegiance to ISIS. The Moroccan intelligence service however has denied the link.

    The extremely graphic video had been sent to friends and relatives of the victims. According to Danish media, Jespersen’s mother and other relatives were eventually forced to deactivate their Facebook accounts because of they were being spammed with the horrific images.

    Alarmingly, in order to celebrate “International Women’s Day” – an mere three months after two young Scandinavian women were savagely beheaded by ISIS terrorists – the British daily The Independent issued a travel guide for single women recommending Morocco for “solo travel”.

    The article “International Women’s Day: 10 of the best female-only trips for solo travelers,” listed “Hike in Morocco” as their top recommendation.

    The original article even contains an affiliate link to Intrepid Travel’s “Morocco Women’s Expedition” package, which means that The Independent makes money off every woman who signs up for the tour package on top of the money they earn from advertising the extremely dangerous tour.
