    Turkey has requested Denmark to file criminal charges against Roj TV – a channel that is accused of using propaganda to raise support for the separatist movement of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), said spokesman Namik Tan on Friday. "After Turkey received some tip offs that the broadcasting organs of the terrorist organization would try to provide a broadcasting license in Denmark, the Turkish Embassy in Copenhagen launched initiatives at the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs in February 2004," said Tan.

    Turkey again launched initiatives at the Danish Foreign Ministry immediately after the ROJ TV started broadcasting in Denmark on March 1st, 2004, said Tan.

    "After this development, our Embassy in Copenhagen handed over a file, comprised of information, documents and tapes showing the links of ROJ TV with the terrorist organization, to the Danish Radio & Television Agency, and reiterated our demand for cancellation of the broadcasting license. We have not received any positive response from this agency,'' said Tan.

    ''Then, we have given not only the file, comprised of information, documents and tapes showing the links of ROJ TV with the terrorist organization, but also the files about the statements used in the broadcasts of this ROJ TV, including threats, provocations and violence, to Danish police and other local authorities. And, we have asked them to launch criminal proceedings against ROJ TV. This issue is currently being investigated by the concerned Danish authorities'' added Tan.
