Two women have been charged over claims they had sex with underage asylum seekers at a migrant shelter in Denmark.
The pair, aged 36 and 52, are facing up to four years in jail each after allegedly having sex with two 17-year-olds while working at Børnecenter Tullebølle, located on the Danish island of Rudkøbing.
The 36-year-old allegedly had sex with one unaccompanied teen asylum seeker at her house and in her car between May and July last year.

Meanwhile the 52-year-old is accused of having sex with a different teen between January and February 2016 inside the centre and in her car.
The charges were reported by local newspaper Ekstra Bladet.

Sisi Eibye, head of the asylum programme in Langeland Municipality, where the attacks allegedly took place, was fired last year after it emerged that several staff knew for months about what was going on, but failed to report it. Under Danish law it is illegal for employees at institutions to have sexual relations with people under their care. Some of the sex acts were photographed and and videoed, according to claims published by local press last year. 

Børnecenter Tullebølle was permanently shuttered in October last year amid multiple allegations of inappropriate behaviour and violence at the centre. Several migrants were also accused of the rape and sexual assault of several women at the nearby Langelandsfestival. 
The issue of unaccompanied child migrants has caused some controversy in Europe, as it is often difficult to prove the ages of asylum seekers arriving without identity documents or papers.
That has led to the belief that some are claiming to be underage in order to claim asylum, despite being much older than the 18-year cutoff point.
