The imams were told by the Public Prosecutor that Jyllands-Posten's 12 cartoons did not constitute an offence under neither section 140 (blasphemy) nor section 266 b (racism) of the Danish Criminal Code. So they decided to "internationalize the issue".
To this end, they assembled 43 pages with various allegations, distortions, mistakes and outright lies. They included the 12 cartoons from Jyllands-Posten, a back page from WeekendAvisen and three fake Mohammed cartoons, which had never appeared in any Danish medium.
The presence of the dossier was detected by Ekstra Bladet, who published it: The imam and the unbelievers of Denmark. For reasons unknown to me, Ekstra Bladet's copy is a low-quality, black and white scan and the pages are out of sequence. Ekstra Bladet has also translated the Arabic text into Danish, but that page ("Imamens vantro Danmark)" seems to be unavailable.

It is this jumbled version that has been reproduced at mysterier.org/politikk/ekstrabladet/hefte/ and which has been preserved at WikiPedia.
However, the Akkari-Laban dossier is now available in glorious colours in PDF-format and Politiken has made a new translation into Danish: Islamisk Trossamfund mappe (dansk oversættelse). Tip: The file is quite large (12MB) so if you want to save it, it's best to right click the link and select "Save destination as".
It appears that Ekstra Bladet has published the 43 pages in a rather haphazard order. This can be seen partly by comparing with the PDF-file, and partly by studying the little numbers which are written with a pencil in the top, right corner of Ekstra Bladet's scans.
Since Ekstra Bladet's copy has formed the basis for months' worth of discussion I would like to set the record perfectly straight:
|Ekstra Bladet's text||Ekstra Bladet's file name||Real number|
