A front organization dubbed the "Kurdish Red Crescent" founded by the PKK/KCK terror group has been found to provide finances to terrorists.
Axar.az reports citing Anadolu Agency.
The PKK/KCK has sought to cover up its illegal activities including forcible recruitment, provision of financial and logistical support to terrorist activities and influencing public opinion through supposedly legal foundations in Europe since 1978.
The Association for Assistance and Solidarity with Martyrs and Imprisoned Families (HEV-KOM) was among these organizations, created in Germany to provide financial resources to prolong the terror group's activities and support armed terrorists.
After the PKK was included in European terror lists, the PKK/KCK renamed HEV-KOM in 1993 as the Kurdish Red Crescent to make it seem as a non-governmental organization or aid group.
This Dusseldorf-based front organization was recognized as a foundation in 2005 and continues to operate in Europe.
In 2012, another false charity, Heyva Sor a Kurd, was established by a group of doctors and health professionals operating under the so-called Kurdish Red Crescent in Amuda, Syria.
The organization treats injured and sick members of the terror group in rural areas where they continue their terrorist activities, provides financial resources to the terror group and supports its propaganda activities.
Legally, the establishment, recognition and representation of associations such as the Red Crescent and Red Cross are regulated by the Geneva Convention and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), under which only independent countries are permitted to establish such organizations.
