COPENHAGEN – Denmark's ruling party said it would back a vote in parliament Thursday on whether a former immigration minister in the previous government can be tried before the rarely used Court of Impeachment for a 2016 order to separate asylum-seeking couples when one of the pair was a minor.The move by the Social Democrats means there is a majority in favor of a trial against Inger Stoejberg, who served as integration minister from June 2015 to 2019.

If the vote is successful and Stoejberg is eventually charged and then convicted at a trial, she could face a fine or a maximum two years in prison.Earlier this month, lawyers appointed by parliament said there was a legal basis to charge Stoejberg.
