Two days after Denmark's contentious burka law came into effect, a 28-year-old woman has become the first person in the country to be charged with breaching it.
Borchersen added that the woman was informed she would receive a fine of 1,000 kroner ($156) in the post for wearing the facial covering, and that she would need to remove the veil or leave the public space. They also told her to either remove her veil or leave the public area, but she made a decision to keep her headwear on.
"During the fight her niqab came off, but by the time we arrived she had put it back on again", Borchersen told Ritzau. "This ban will have a particularly negative impact on Muslim women who choose to wear the niqab or burqa", said Gauri van Gulik, Amnesty International's Europe director, upon the ban's passage.
Friday's incident is reported to have taken place at a shopping centre in Horsholm, 25km (15 miles) north of Copenhagen.
Along with the niqab and the burqa, the ban applies to balaclavas, masks, false beards and other accessories.
