German Court Sentenced Kurdish Activist Ahmed Celik to 3 Years - nsnbc international | nsnbc international: Celik has already spent 1,5 years behind bars. Celik had been charged with being an executive member of Turkey’s Kurdistan Worker’s party (PKK) in Germany. Celik, for his part, maintained that he has struggled for the democratic and cultural rights of the Kurdish people in Germany since 1986.

He has worked for various Kurdish institutions and served as the President of Federation of Kurdish Associations in Germany (YEK-KOM) between 2008 and 2011.

Turkey, the United States and the European Union have designated the PKK as a terrorist organization. Neither Russia, China, nor Switzerland designate the PKK as a terrorist organization.
