Beware of New Zealand

In the latest case a Danish backpacker who intervened to rescue another tourist from locals ended up being convicted of assault.

Playing home field in a court matters and also to consider is the fact that Denmark is at war several places in the world fighting terrorism. While New Zealand must be considered to be on the same side as a nation, individuals might not share the politics.

Being a tourist outside Denmark is not the smartest move and we must recommend that Danes avoid countries like New Zealand right now.
