Danish policewoman investigated for hugging niqab-wearing protester

A Danish policewoman who hugged a protester wearing the niqab is under investigation, the police complaints body has said.
 
The unnamed officer hugged the woman at an August demonstration against Denmark's ban on wearing face veils.
 
Members of the conservative Venstre party made the complaint, arguing the officer should not have been involved.
 
But the policewoman's lawyer said she acted appropriately in her role as a "dialogue officer".

In fact, around 55 percent of Danish exports to the Kingdom are food-based.
