A body found near the motorway in the southern Jutland town of Kliplev is believed to be that of Kamilla Hantusch, a 22-year year woman who has been missing since July 19th.
Southern Jutland Police said on Thursday that they believe the body found was Hantusch, but are awaiting the final results of an autopsy scheduled to be carried out later in the day.
Police on Wednesday night arrested Hantusch’s 24-year-old former boyfriend and charged him with her murder. The arrested man will make an initial court appearance in Sønderborg on Thursday. 
Police are not releasing more details due to the case’s ongoing investigation.
“It is expected that prosecutors will request a closed-door hearing out of consideration to further investigations,” the police said in a statement on Thursday. “Therefore, what the police can say about the case at this point is extremely limited.”
Hantusch went missing on July 19th from the town of Padborg near the German border. Police issued an international missing persons report with Interpol four days after she was last seen, and as many as 100 Home Guard personnel and rescue workers from the Danish Emergency Management Agency (Beredskabsstyrelsen) combed the southern Jutland area in search of Hantusch.
The find of Hantusch’s body and the arrest of her ex-boyfriend comes just two days after the husband of a Glostrup woman admitted to strangling her to death

Danish NemID scam victims can apply for compensation

Victims of scammers who trick their victims through misuse of the NemID online identity system can now apply for compensation.

Danish NemID scam victims can apply for compensation

Scams in which callers trick their victims into handing over NemID information – the login system used to access banking, public services and other secure online platforms in Denmark – have been regularly reported in recent years, often targeting older people.

The perpetrators have also been known to use email or other forms of initial contact.


People who have lost money to certain scams of this type could now be awarded compensation, broadcaster DR reports.

Denmark residents who have been targeted in NemID scams can from Monday apply for compensation if they have lost money which should have been paid into their bank accounts.

According to the Danish Agency for Digitisation (Digitaliseringsstyrelsen), the scammers often change victims’ so-called NemKonto to a different account which they control.

A NemKonto is the designated current account used to receive salaries as well as payments from the state such as pensions, child support or unemployment benefits.

As such, regular payments that should be received by the victim go to a different bank account.

During the first six months of the compensation scheme – until January 31st 2023 – victims can apply for compensation with up to 10 years’ retrospective effect, the agency said in a statement. As such, anyone who has lost money to scams of this type from August 2012 onwards could receive compensation.

To apply for compensation, the applicant should provide documentation of a police report and proof that they were the rightful recipient of the lost payments.

NemID is currently being replaced by a new online ID system, MitID, in a phased process which will see NemID out of use by autumn 2022.
