AA

BERLIN: A PKK leader was jailed for three years by a German court on Tuesday, the court said in a statement.

The Higher Court of Dusseldorf said Ahmet C., 52, had organized PKK propaganda and “militants’ affairs” in North Rhine-Westphalia state, which includes the cities of Cologne and Dortmund, between June 2013 and July 2014.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization in Turkey, the U.S. and EU. It has waged a terror campaign against Turkey for more than 30 years during which more than 40,000 people have been killed.
