Karsten Lauritzen from Venstre

Mr. Karsten Lauridsen is the spokesperson on immigration in the Danish political party Venstre.
As a continuation of the debate on the Iraqi asylum seekers who have been expelled from Denmark according to Danish law, he has recently said
"Jeg synes sådan set, at oppositionen bør skamme sig lidt. Hver gang man løber tør for almindelige argumenter, så hiver man en konvention eller et lovbrud op" (http://politiken.dk/indland/article771515.ece) (freely translated: "I think that the opposition should be ashamed of themselves. Every time they run out of normal arguments, they bring forth some convention or law."
This he said in relation to the fact that as these Iraqi's are being interrogated by an Iraqi delegation, they have been denied their lawyers being present. This is apparently in contrast with Danish Public law, something that has already been pointed out by numerous experts.
Therefore, Mr. Lauridsen's comment seems rather odd: wasn't it exactly because of the law that the Iraqis are being expelled!?
I don't think that the law is too strict, and that humanitarian considerations should go ahead of the law about expelling the Iraqis. But I find it outright hipocritical that a man like Mr. Lauridsen thinks the law is only valid in some cases and not in others. If he was really consistent, he would argue that protection of the law is equal for everyone in the country.
Sadly, in politicians in Denmark hide their lack of humanity behind the law, and on top of it, the law does not apply equally to everyone!
It is becoming so very sad to witness this!
