The Danish government offered to take in a four-year-old girl with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from a prison camp in Syria.

But the Danish authorities only want to take the girl in without her ethnic Danish mother and her five-year-old adoptive brother, the newspaper Berlingske writes.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has sent a letter with the information to the family’s lawyer Knud Foldschack. He stated that the girl’s mother would not accept the daughter traveling alone.

The Social Democratic government has long refused to bring home children with connections to Denmark from the prison camps in Syria, as they do not want the children’s parents to return home.
