The teenagers were according to the charges exposed to violence and acts of humiliation by the employees.
The facility has fired the people charged with crimes. Officially due to the economy of the facility, but in reality to distance themselves from the charges the employees have been hit with.
Several of the charges are many years old and according to Danish laws acts of violence should have been reported to the authorities which are supposed to monitor such facilities.

We will keep our readers updated on the situation.
