The man was arrested,” stated an announcement from his providers, including that the Prime Minister was “shocked by the incident”.

“One person has been arrested in this case, which is currently under investigation. For the moment, we have no further comments or remarks to make,” the police stated in an announcement printed on X (previously Twitter).

“I must say that this upsets those of us who are close to her,” reacted Danish Environment Minister Magnus Heunicke. “This should not happen in our beautiful, safe and free country.”

A “revolting” assault

The assault by the Danish Prime Minister is “revolting”, stated the President of the European Parliament Roberta Metsola, judging that “violence (had) no place in politics”.

Charles Michel, the President of the European Council, declared himself “outraged” and indicated that he “strongly condemned this cowardly aggression”, which occurred because the Danes have been making ready to take part within the European elections on Sunday.
