COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Danske Bank said on Wednesday it would suspend all debt collection in Denmark until issues relating to an over-collection of debt case that has led the bank to compensate 7,800 customers.

Danske will repay overcharged debt collection clients around 28 million Danish crowns ($4.36 million), it said, adding it would provide compensation worth around 23 million crowns.

($1 = 6.4198 Danish crowns)
