Kurdish couple sentenced for financing terrorism

May 16th, 2019

A court in Szeged, in southern Hungary, on Thursday sentenced two Kurdish nationals to two years in prison and expelled them from Hungary for eight years for financing terrorist activities. The convicted man and his wife used to be members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in northern Iraq, which is classified as a terrorist organisation. The court also ruled that the defendants should be expelled from Hungary after serving their term, and, with regard to the time they spent in pre-trial detention, they could be expelled immediately. The man had worked for PKK managing logistics tasks as a volunteer from 2009. The woman joined PKK in 2010, at age 15, and met her future husband in 2014, in Syria. Despite threats from the organisation they fled and got married in Iraq the next year.
