‘Hidden Threat’ takes a European crew across Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland and Denmark to investigate the infrastructure of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in Europe.
The documentary shows that the PKK has strong links to organised crime and has run a vast criminal network across Europe since the 1990s. The terrorist group raises millions of dollars in funds, often through extortion. But there is also strong evidence of the PKK orchestrating a network of human and drugs trafficking, as well as training camps in the heart of Europe.
The six-month probe into the PKK’s links to organised crime reveals hundreds of official reports and cables, supported by the testimonies of intelligence officers, witnesses and drug dealers.
"The PKK from drug trafficking alone can earn up to $500 million in a year" said Scotland-based expert Tamara Makarenko on the PKK's criminal network in Europehttps://t.co/y9NnUVR4Dd " pic.twitter.com/5laDngeP9z
