A second gang member has been convicted of accessory to murder, while a third was found guilty of possessing firearms, reports Politiken.

Police have described the murders, which were carried out while the victims slept, as “liquidations”, reports the newspaper.

According to police, the men's killers climbed a scaffolding to get into an apartment in the Frederiksberg neigbourhood, where they shot the victims as they slept.

The 34-year-old convicted man, whose role within the Bandidos hierarchy is given the name “minister for war” (krigsminister), did not answer any questions considered to be key to the case, including regarding possession of a revolver, reports Politiken.

This is considered to be a key factor of his conviction by the jury at Frederiksberg court.

The footprint of a Fred Perry shoe was also one of the decisive pieces of evidence.

A 27-year-old man who is the brother-in-law of the convicted man was acquitted of murder but found guilty of being in possession of a revolver used in the crime.

The 34-year-old is reported to have laughed with his defence lawyer in court shortly before the verdict was read.

The third convicted man, aged 25, was found guilty of being an accomplice to the crime but acquitted of being one of the three people that climbed a scaffolding before gaining access to the Frederiksberg apartment on November 11th 2015 to carry out the killings.

Mike Vinther, Philip Rasmussen and Suhaib Jaffar were shot to death by a revolver and shotgun in the early hours of the morning.

Nine people were initially arrested in April 2016 following investigation of the murders.

The woman was arrested on Saturday and charged with theft and information fraud. There are ten victims in the case.

The police suspect the woman of having stolen from citizens whose homes she has visited as part of her work as a domestic worker in various places in Copenhagen.

“She has worked as a domestic helper and has been in people’s homes as an employee,” Bjarke Dalsgaard, deputy police inspector at Copenhagen police, said.

According to the police, the woman has stolen jewellery and cash on ten occasions. In addition, she has stolen debit cards in four cases and withdrawn money using them. The money that has been withdrawn alone adds up to a value of 52,000 kroner.

Copenhagen police received the first report of theft in the case at the beginning of 2022.

According to the police, the 31-year-old domestic helper admitted to one instance of crime (the theft of around 400 kroner) but pleaded not guilty regarding the remaining 13.
