Turkey: Kurdish mayors tried for terrorism

On 26 September, 56 Kurdish mayors went on trial on charges of supporting the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) after they sent a joint letter to the Danish Prime Minister asking him to refuse the Turkish Government’s call to close down a Denmark-based Kurdish television station. The station is considered by the Government to represent the views of the PKK, which is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the EU, and the US.
