Tina Petersen, a former MP for Dansk Folkeparti (DF) and current member of the Svendborg City Council, has has been acquitted of racism after posting a photo on her Facebook page in April that compared Muslims to rubbish.
"Hehe ... Remember to take out the big trash tomorrow ;-)))…" Petersen wrote next to a manipulated photo of a burka-clad Muslim woman and child who were made to resemble the two rubbish bags they are standing next to.
The public prosecutor's office on Funen filed the indictment. Petersen was acquitted by a unanimous decision.
