From the Norwegian Kafir’s superb Fjordman blog:
One of the men, Hizir Kilic, was born in Denmark, while his cousin Ferhat Kilic came to the country when he was three. The two men were minors at the time of the crime, and had therefore not yet become Danish citizens, since anyone born to immigrant parents in Denmark must be at least 18 before requesting to become a national.
Two young criminals have been sentenced to deportation to Turkey, after killing an Italian tourist in Copenhagen in 2003. Two teenagers were sentenced to deportation by the Supreme Court on Tuesday, for murdering an Italian tourist in Copenhagen’s NÃ¸rrebro quarter in 2003. The cousins Hizir and Ferhat Kilic were 16 and 17 years old when they assaulted and stabbed a young Italian traveller, Antonio CurrÃ , and left him to die on the street.
The court sentenced them to 10 and 8 years in prison for the murder, and to be deported to the country of their
birth, Turkey, even though they had lived almost all their lives in Denmark.
‘The deportation is ten times worse than the prison sentence,’ Hizir Kilic told the court last week. ‘I won’t be able to go to Turkey and survive.’ The cousins’ defense attorneys tried in vain to convince the court’s seven judges, that the boys’ young age and strong roots in Denmark should exempt them from new laws, which allow courts to have criminal immigrants deported.
And here is a translation of some Danish leftist reactions, courtesy Faith Freedom:
By Christina Rosendahl, film director:
“Dear Hizir and Ferhat,
You guys did a dirty trick. You stabbed a young Italian man, someone almost like yourselves. He was a living human being. Now he is dead. You have to go to jail and you guys have deserved that, of course. But I want to apologize to the both of you on behalf of Denmark. Sorry about the arrogant and narrow-minded vindictiveness that you meet in the Danish streets. Sorry about all those Danes who think it is all right to send you guys out of the country although you have been given a gigantic prison sentence.
Although you have lived here all your life and even are born here, went to school, made friends and have been petty criminals and even smoked pot (as they claim on the radio), there seems to be different rules for you than for other criminals.
Sorry about all those Danes who gladly are being interviewed on TV or on the radio who want to ‘honor’ us all with their home-spun philosophy: Â»We really cannot accept people killing each other in the streets Â« or Â»it is their own fault, we want them out of the country Â«. Thank god I’m not the only one who feel sick about the Danish rhetorics of fear. You guys are going to prison and you have deserved that. How I had hoped that the Danish community would take responsibility and give you lots of help: Psychiatric help, psychological help, help at school, more financial help and helping you guys knowing how to kill time in stead of killing people; help getting an education, getting work and a family eventually. And more hope for the future as well as self-esteem. Sorry about those Danes who live in a different century. I hope the best for you. Even though you did do a dirty trick!”
