The first sentences have been made in the Se & Hør scandal.

The publishing house Aller is fined 10 million DKK - 1.343.000 €

And two junior editors have each been given six months suspended prison sentence and 120 hours community service.

These are all cases where Aller and the two editors have confessed and the sentences reflect that fact.

The rest who are standing trial, have pleaded not guilty.

Article on the sentences: http://www.bt.dk/politik/aller-faar-millionboede-efter-se-og-hoer-skandalen-tidligere-chefer-faar-betinget-

The comments are trickling in.

Because this is a case without precedence in press-history, both in regards to scale and how it was organized.
So the sentences of two junior editors are an indication of the sentences that will be handed out to those who are more deeply involved. - I.e. prison, and not suspended.

Aller publishing house are pretty relieved and accept the sentence of a fine of ten million.
One of thee editors accepted the sentence on the spot.
The other has asked for time to consider whether to appeal.

But that means the confessions from the two editors are now a factor in the process against the other involved. Because they can now be called in as witnesses and as such are obliged to tell the whole truth, and since they have already been given a sentence, they have nothing to lose...

The link is wrong, Muhler :(

Here is the right one: Aller får millionbøde efter Se og Hør-skandalen - tidligere chefer får betinget dom

Mang Tak Muhler and Faster B. I would like to see publishing houses receive many many more heavy sentences for totally made up rubbish that malignes a person. Such as celebrities or just decent folk.
I hate the way the media gets away with so much slanderous content. Especially as there are plenty of naive people in this world like my mother. If it is in Print then she believes it must be true!

I haven't got time to summarize now.

But it emerged some two years ago now. The wheels of justice turn slowly you know!
You can find much more in-depth info by me, in the archived generals Danish royal family threads. - Just do a search for Se & Hør.

And we have a new study - which say the same as every else of these studies the recent years.
Mere end hver tredje dansker vil af med Margrethe - MX.dk

More than two in three Danes (66 %) would like Queen Margrethe to abdicates as head of the Danish Royal family within the next year. And let Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary take over.

The study is based on interviews with more than thousands presentatively selected Danish people aged 18-74 years from YouGov panel during the period 19 to 22 August 2016.

The "experts" see the study as a praise to the Queen - she have done well - and now that Prince Henrik have retired, she deserves to retire and relax as well.

The experts also see it as a kudos to the Crown Prince couple. The Danes are more than ready to let CP Frederik and CP Mary come to the throne. And the Danes have been that the last 5 years. The Crown Prince couple are ready, popular and has already taken over many of the Queen's tasks.


**

We see these studies all the time. And they speak for themselves. The Danes are ready to have a generational change. I more and more tense to think it might be a good idea with a new tradition. That said, I do not think it's going to happen. And yet .. There is some stuff going on in the DRF these years which does that I don't think it's unlikely anymore.

I have very mixed feelings about this, (and of course it's none of my business as I'm not Danish.) I can see the attraction in having a youngish active, fit and popular couple on the throne. But, does everything have to incorporate 'generational change'? Can't Queen Margrethe go if and when she's ready to go? Personally, if I'd worked hard as my country's constitutional monarch for decades only to be told at the end, 'Yes, you've done very well, but now you're old and we'd really like someone younger, thanks." I would be very, very hurt. And that's what it comes down to, doesn't it?

I doubt that the only reason for wanting Frederik and Mary to take over is that they are younger If they weren't doing a good job, being younger would hardly be enough, I think.

These polls are really pointless anyway. Queen M has made it clear that she is not going to abdicate, but surely she can only be happy to see, that so many Danes think the CPC is ready to take over?

Why are they pointless?
I really think out of all monarchs especially Queen Margrethe has no right to ignore the people's choice/wish. She only ascended the throne because there was a break with tradition and a majority of the Danes wanted her and not her uncle on the throne. People were ready for a change in 1953 and dropped the idea of "male sucession only". And obviously they are ready now for another change by dropping the idea of "reigning until death".
As long as the results are like in this poll (37% for abdication, 20% undecided and 40% against) she still has the majority on her side and doesn't really have to react. But once a majority wants her to abdicate her refusal to do so would be problematic since the Danes always declare that their monarchy is based on a democratic decision.

From a personal point of view, perhaps. But from a dynastic point of view it must be a tremendous relief that the next generation is ready and accepted.
In contrast to another member of the DRF I could mention, QMII has always put the interests of her country and dynasty before herself.
And the fact that so many express their total satisfaction with her is a big compliment. - Not least in these youth-fixated times we live in.

In many ways M&F being seen as ready to take over now, is also a compliment to QMII. She has done a good job in preparing M&F.

The person may feel hurt, but when QMII takes her seat among her ancestors, she can do so, knowing she won't be the last in the dynasty and that she has done everything to ensure the continuation of the dynasty.

You nailed it I think.
It would be terrible if poll after poll showed that people were reluctant about M&F taking over.

Here is a very charming video with QMII, where she first talks about sailors outfits and coats worn by Joachim and Frederik in the early 1970's. https://www.facebook.com/kosa.dk/vid...6990052367330/

Then she talks about pieces of jewellery.
(And there is a typical QMII reaction when the clock chimes)

The video is subtitled, and while I could write a more detailed summary, I think you should be able to understand most of what is going on. - If not, just say so.
I'm actually very interested in learning how much you do understand.

The trial regarding the Se & Hør scandal has started in earnest today.
The trial is scheduled to last 20 days and will end in November.

Here is a list of those whom the prosecutor claims to prove to have had their credit card info, and as such their whereabouts as well.
Se listen af kongelige og kendte: Mindst 114 blev overvåget i Se og Hør-sagen - TV 2

The six persons who are left and who have pleaded not guilty are:

The source at Nets, who provided the very confidential info: Peter Bo Henriksen.

The former Se & Hør journalist who blew the whistle (basically to get even at his former employer): Ken B Rasmussen.
Another journalist who also handled the direct contact to the source: Kasper Kopping.
Former editor in chief, Henrik Qvortrup. Under whom the whole thing started.
The next editor in chief, Kim Henningsen. Under whose leadership, the source was by no means left unemployed!
Another editor in chief, Per Ingdal, was an temporary editor in chief, until Kim Henningsen took over from Henrik Qvortrup.

Today the source, Peter Bo Henriksen, declined to speak in court.

- Things are looking pretty bleak for those accused!
Aller press the publishing house has confessed to illegal actions taking place and has been fined.
Two former junior editors have also pleaded guilty and got a suspended prison sentence.
They are now free to testify against those accused.

The key-point is: Criminal intent.
I.e. did the accused know or ought they have known that the information they seeked and received were obtained illegally?
Well, as said before it doesn't look good!
The source and the two journalists are IMO guaranteed to be found guilty.
Two former editors in chief are (also IMO) in big trouble!
The final editor might just get off the hook with a big rap over the knuckles.

The trial continues. Tys-tys-kilde fik 20.000 for tip om kongelig bryllupsrejse

Yesterday one of the two journalists who handled the direct control of the source at Nets that provided credit card info on royals and celebs using Visa or American express.
The journalist, Kasper Kopping, has pleaded not guilty. Instead he seems to base his defense on "acting under order".

It was Kasper Kopping who started the co-operation with the source, when Se & Hør was approached with concrete proof of where Joachim and Marie went on their honey moon - to Canada.
That was considered a scoop.

As such the source was invited in to visit Se & Hør and the then editor in chief, Henrik Qvortrup, met the source at the office. Gave him a reward for his tip for 20.000 DKK (in DK context a very large sum) and arranged that the source should provide details for other royals and celebs for a monthly fee of 10.000 DKK.

Neither Henrik Qvortrup, nor Kasper Kopping were interested in knowing exactly how the source obtained the information.
But they were certainly willing to accept it and a list of people was presented to the source for future use.
Most info was never really used, says Kasper Kopping. Some formed the basis for notes or articles though.

- This looks bad for Henrik Qvortrup in particular. As editor and journalist he ought to know that such info under Danish law is confidential and as such illegal to use. Not to mention a violation of the law on privacy. (It's the equivalent to someone else reading your credit card statement, without you knowing it).
That Kasper Kopping also should know that is another matter. He seems to base his defense as working under pressure in morally twisted environment and as such not saying no to his superior.

The Se & Hør trial continues.

Today one of the main characters was in the stand.
Henrik Qvortrup, the editor-in-chief under whom the credit card source started to supply info to the magazine and that continued until he got another job.

Henrik Qvortrup has been looking very much forward to tell his version.

In short that was:
The source wasn't really that important. Despite supplying info about more 130 people, including members of the DRF, and even the then PM.
He did approve of the source and even though he guessed the info supplied weren't "by the book" he didn't think it was criminal.
When presented with e-mails referring to the source suppliying credit card information, he claimed he couldn't remember it. There were several things he couldn't recall.

- So the question is: Should an editor-in-chief know that info about credit card transactions from more than 100 people, including very high ranking people, is likely to be illegally obtained? - Let alone to handle? - Should he know that he was dealing with a criminal? - And should he have known that the information basically was stolen goods?
According to Henrik Qvortrup, apparently not.

Ignorance is bliss, as we all know. Especially within the world of the media, it seems...

The Se & Hør case continues. (Very short summary).

Two former editors-in-chief were in the stand today.

Per Ingdal, who was higher up the rank and served as an interrim editor when Henrik Qvortrup left for another job, and Kim Henningsen who became the new editor and continued until the whole thing was exposed.

Per Ingdal claims he was not informed about the credit-card source.
However, had he known that the journalist who handled the source, Ken B Rasmussen, would have gone public with his knowledge, he said at court that he would have offered Ken B Rasmussen a raise in salary in order not to reveal his info.
As the prosecutor noted: You would have paid him to shut up?
Per Ingdal admitted so, since this would have been an embarrassing thing for the magazine - and of course Aller publishing house (and himself).

However, despite Per Ingdal claiming not to know the details about the credit card source he nevertheless received a mail from Kim Henningsen telling him about the problems with Ken B Rasmussen and and in that mail there is a very clear reference to Per Ingdal knowing about the source and that the source supplying Se & Hør with credit card transactions from PBS (PBS is the branch handling practically all credit card transactions in DK for all Danish banks. I.e. it can't get more clear that the info is very confidential indeed).
There was also a mail-reply from Per Ingdal to Ken Rasmussen advising him to formulate a communication stragtegy should Ken B Rasmussen go public - which he did. (I.e. prepare damage control).

When Kim Henningsen took the stand, he told the court that he officially stopped all co-operation with the source, but also admitted that it continued and that he no intention of stopping the co-operation anyway.

In 2011 he was ordered by Per Ingdal to stop the co-operation with the source. Still Kim Henningsen found the source to be so good that he overruled that order and instead instructed those few who were in the know to camouflage the information so that they could appear to come from other sources as seen from higher up in the publishing house.

He was asked whether he had considered the information obtained as legal.
He did consider it and believed the information obtained was legal, since the source had access to them...
And since the source and the information had been used during his predecessors he believed it must be okay to continue.

He also admitted that the responsibility was his alone.

He also claimed to suffer from problems remembering details, since he was treated with electro-chocks as a result from a depression he got after the affair was exposed.

A detail in the article mention that Frederik was pretty hostile against Se & Hør in 2011 for whatever reason - and it suggests that the DRF had basically put Se & Hør on ice. As such the source was important in regards to learning the whereabouts of the DRF.

Why the H*** would Per Ingdahl pay for something he didn´t know about?
