Ahmed Samsam is a Danish man who is serving eight years in a Spanish jail for joining the Islamic State in Syria has claimed he was actually working for Denmark’s intelligence services.
He travelled to Syria several times under the direction of Denmark’s Police Intelligence Service and Defence Intelligence Service, Danish newspaper Berlingske reported. He says that only once, in 2012, did he go to Syria on his own initiative.
Samsam says Danish authorities promised him he would never be punished for his travel to Syria. His subsequent conviction has angered some in Denmark who say they are angry Spain was not told immediately about Samsam’s work.
During the case, Samsam said Danish authorities had been aware of his travel to Syria. Denmark’s intelligence service confirmed in 2018 it had been in contact with Spain over Samsam’s arrest on the Costa del Sol in 2017.
