Brøndby cannot get the names of people on the bus that attacked FCK fans at a rest area on Funen to be handed over.
On the way home after the 0-0 match in Viborg on Sunday, a bus with Brøndby fans stopped at a rest area on Funen, where a group of FC Copenhagen fans were.
This led to fights and the firing of pyrotechnics at people, while other people in the rest area unwittingly witnessed the attack on the opposing fans.
On Monday, Brøndby director Ole Palmå made no secret of the fact that the trouble, which comes after a long period with many cases of violent fans, frustrates him.
- We are deeply, deeply frustrated by the latest episodes from yesterday's match against Viborg, says Palmå to the club's website.
There were also problems at the stadium in Viborg with the Brøndby fans, who used pyrotechnics, while some fans also broke quarantines.
This has led to 28 cases after the match, but the club cannot do much about the attack on the rest area. This is due to the GDPR regulations.
- The police inform us that they have registered all the names of the people on the bus, but due to GDPR we cannot get the names handed over and quarantine the people in question, or see if they are already quarantined, explains Palmå.
- It is of course frustrating, as we, like everyone else, do not want these people to come to our matches.
- We have of course initiated our own investigation into the matter in the hope of identifying those involved with a view to issuing quarantines.120 people in quarantine
Right now, more than 120 people are quarantined from attending Brøndby's matches, but the troublemakers from the bus at the Funen rest area may therefore be difficult for the club to identify.
The GDPR issue must not stand in the way of criminal acts being punished. This is the opinion of Venstre's legal rapporteur, Morten Dahlin (V), who wants the Ministry of Justice on board.
- We simply have to find a solution to this problem. After all, GDPR regulations must not stand in the way of being able to punish hooligans, says Dahlin.
