Renewed investigation of Kurdish TV-station

The public prosecutor has asked the police to investigate once
again the Kurdish TV-station ROJ-TV, which Turkey and the
USA claim is funded by the Kurdish organization
PKK. This happens after the Copenhagen Police twice already
within the latest 18 months has been investigating and submitted
the politically controversial case to the public prosecutor Karsten Hjort.

The public prosecutor has not been of the opinion, that the matter had been adequately clarified and also new pieces of information have been presented, says local attorney Jens Rasmussen.

The Kurdish separatist movement the Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK) has been put on the list of terrorist organizations of the European Union (EU), but ROJ-TV has denied receiving funds from the PKK.

The Red-Green Alliance (Enhedslisten) fears that the protracted investigation of the Kurdish TV-station is due to political pressure from Turkey and the USA.
