Resumption of border checks
In May 2011, Denmark resumed checks along its borders with Germany and Sweden, previously open under the EU's Schengen zone agreement. The Danish government says the resumption of border checks is needed to help prevent cross-border crime, illegal immigration and drug trafficking.
