Danish Court Convicts Two of Funding PKK – They have raised millions of Euros the for Kurdish party PKK
Basnews English – 11 June 2016 – PKK guerrillas PKK guerrillas Supplied – COPENHAGEN —The defendants were found guilty of channeling €4.5 million ($5.1 million) through Denmark-based Kurdish television channel Roj TV to the PKK. The Eastern High Court said in a statement that “among other things it had to consider whether PKK is a terrorist organization” in deciding whether to overturn the men’s earlier acquittals. A majority of judges and jurors had found that to be the case, it added. The two men — said by the local Ritzau news agency to be Kurdish — raised 4.5 million kroner and 29 million kroner, respectively, for PKK, which is listed by Turkey and its Western allies, including the European Union, as a terrorist group. The court will announce their sentence next week.
The prosecution had charged 10 men with raising a total of 140 million kroner for the outlawed group, but eight of the men had been acquitted by a district court since it could not be proven that they knew that Roj TV would send the money to PKK, according to Hurriyet Daily News. www.mesop.de
