Now it becomes harder to be beggars in Denmark. A new law raises the minimum penalty to 14 days imprisonment for those who begs on streets and other public places in the country, TT writes.

The parliament voted for a bill stating that beggars should be sentenced to 14 days 'unconditional imprisonment' if they beg at certain public places; stations, pedestrian streets, supermarkets or public transportation.

The proposal was adopted with broad support from the Danish parliament.

However, the parliament voted no to another bill which proposed that homeless from other countries convicted of begging should always be expelled from the country.

The Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen, who presented the bill in early June, has previously said that the new law aims to combat "Romani leagues" in Copenhagen.

In three years, the law and its effects will be evaluated.
