The District Office of the Attorney General in Copenhagen has announced on August 31 that a court case has been filed against ROJ TV, Mezopotamya TV and their parent company, Mezopotamya Broadcasting Co. in relation to their promotion of the activities of the PKK terrorist organization. The statement confirms the terrorist nature of the PKK and points out the fact that the broadcasts of ROJ TV are propaganda in support of the PKK.

Turkey welcomes the right decision of The Danish Government to file suit against PKK broadcasting organizations which is also in line with their international responsibilities on combating terrorism.

We expect these broadcasting organizations, which support terrorism and promote violence, to be punished accordingly.
