New rule at Danish discos: Guests must be able to speak Danish, German or English.
A number of Danish discotheques are experiencing increasing problems with immigrant customers insulting and abusing women.
Several Danish discotheques have therefore decided to shut out asylum seekers who can't be argued with,
At disco Buddy Holly in Sønderborg, asylum seekers now have to be able to speak Danish, English or German if they are to be let in.
- We have some rules to ensure that our guests have a good experience and feel comfortable, says Tom Holden, owner of Buddy Holly, to TV2.
A number of other clubs have also experienced problems with highly unwanted behaviour and even assault and groping of female guests by asylum seekers.
- They are in tears, because someone have assaulted them, says Rafi Ibrahim, owner of the discotheque Pool House in Haderslev to TV2.
It is groups and gangs of foreign men that are causing the problems and Pool House has now increased the security.
- We are very alert and we have extra doormen, says Rafi Ibrahim.
The problems come in the wake of the sexual abuse of women in the German city of Cologne on New Year's Eve, and in many other European cities, and the scandal of the assaulted Swedish women in Stockholm, which the police kept to themselves.
In the German city of Bornheim near Cologne, a swimming pool in a local leisure center was recently closed six days a week for asylum seekers, for the same reason.
Torben Hoffmann Rosenstock, director of the Danish restaurant and cafe Union, says that he has now contacted the Minister of Justice, Søren Pind, about the growing problems.
- There are some security challenges if you can not have a dialogue with the guest, says Hoffmann Rosenstock.
Minister of Justice, Søren Pind, says to TV2 that he will look into the request from the Danish restaurant and cafe Union, which has 1,500 members.
