PKK TERRORIST ORGANISATION FILES : PKK is The World’s Third Largest Narco-terrorist Organization

The phrase “In the USA someone dies from a heroin
overdose every 50 minutes”  from BBC’s documentary Smack in Suburbia America’s
Heroin Crisis
 describes to what extend narcotics are a
societal tragedy.

While exact numbers are impossible to come by, due to the nature
of the business, the “UN
Organization on Drugs and Crime”
(UNODC) estimates that illegal
narcotics represent the world’s third-biggest export, after oil and the arms
trade, worth more than $300 billion annually.

In 2013 and 2014, the number of individuals dying of narcotics has
increased in parallel with the quantity of heroin, cocaine, and amphetamines
seized in Germany. In this group, the number of individuals aged below 25 -
sadly – continues showing an increasing trend throughout years. 

during 2014/15 period, there was a large increase in the quantity
of heroin seized (by both police forces and Border Force) from 647 kilograms in
2013/14 to 1,113 kilograms in 2014/15, an increase of 72 per cent.

The quantity of narcotics seized in France in 2015 was recorded as
160 tons. The biggest seizure in once was 7 tons and occurred in Paris in
October 2015. Experts point out only 1/10th of the traded
narcotics are seized, which means whenever 1kg of narcotics is caught, 9kgs are
still being traded on diverse markets.

England, statistics indicate the number of heroin addicted
individuals was
260,000 in 2006. Unfortunally, we have no updated figure of this. But we
certainly know today is that the number or narco-addicted individuals is very
much higher than this figure. 

The National Crime Agency
from the UK points out in a twitter message on December 18th 2015
‘more  than 24 billion pounds are spent on organized crimes. Let us think
for a minute, what actions could have been undertaken with this tremendous
amount of money to make the UK a country better off in living. Most important,
would the mental and physical health problem of 260 thousand individuals even

Eighty percent of narcotics smuggling to European countries is
perpetrated by PKK. As a supportive example, an information in UK’s records
mentions Abdullah Baybasin controlled 90% of heroin smuggling to UK in
2006. The same person was sentenced in Turkey for trafficking narcotics
and financially supporting PKK. But he escaped to the UK where he had a
residence permit as a “Kurdish refugee”. Media leaks alleged Abdullah Baybasin
was used in UK intelligence service’s spying acts in exchange of the residence

One day, if PKK succeed in
establishing “Kurdistan”, its base will be narco-cash  generated
by the drug trafficking with which PKK poisoned Europe.

The world’s third largest narco-terrorist organization PKK gives
the impression it has no liaison with its sub-units by creating confusion. In
reality, they are all units of PKK within a tight knotted and strict
organizational structure. For this exact reason, it is important to remember
that Democratic Union Party (PYD) is PKK’s unit in Syria, just like Kurdistan
Democratic Solution Party (PCDK) is in Iraq, and Kurdistan Free Life Party
(PJAK) is in Iran. Differently named in different countries, each PKK unit has
distinct legions conducting the armed conflict such as YPG, HPG, etc. Over all
of them exists Koma Civakên Kurdistan (KCK).

PKK is ranked in the list of terrorist organizations by the EU and
the USA. It is so in many countries of the world, including Japan to
Azerbaidjan. Because PKK connects between all continents, it can – and does -
generate most of its financial resources from international illegal
activities. PKK’s 2015 budget is estimated at 86
billion dollars

The terrorist organization imitates Hezbollah to a big extend in
organization. We observe this imitation in narco-traffics as well. Although
individuals work in different branches of the structure, they are elements of
the common narco-traffic structure thanks to tight family bonds. They use their
legal business to launder the black money they earn from illegal activities.
One example among many others is; the Buldan and the Baybasin families doing
legal trade in addition to the manufacture and trade of narcotics. The HDP
parliamentary Pervin Buldan’s brother in law Nihat Buldan was caught with 90kg
of heroin in 2008. Her cousin Rosat Buldan and his son Sedat Buldan were also
caught narco-trafficking in 2012.

François Haut depicts PKK’s emerge from Lebanon and its
expansion to the world and transformation into a narco-terrorist organization,
and its other organized crimes in “Kurdish Extremism and
Organised Crime: The Kurdistan Workers Party
. A short citation from his

“Let’s listen to what the US DEA wrote in 1995: “It has
been established that the PKK now has perfect arrangement to produce, transport
and traffic opiates and cannabis throughout Europe. Moreover, material evidence
and intelligence sources have shown that the PKK is also engaging in laundering
money from drug trafficking. The fund thus recovered are then funneled back
into the terrorist organization.

Regional conflicts and wars play an important role in PKK’s
growth, and expansion and variation in terror activities. The Iran-Iraq War,
the Gulf War, Iraq’s invasion, the civil war in Syria brought the organization
to nowadays. The growth of the organization engendered the necessity to grow
the financial resources as well. It carried one step further the production of
narcotics in Lebanon/Bekaa by starting to transport the produced goods to
Europe. 1990s were years of massive heroin smuggling to the West for the
narco-terrorist organization. This was only the beginning.

Through 1990s PKK’s fight along with the Kurdish peshmergas
against Barzani gave rise to the need of holding high firepower weapons. The
same need was felt to conduct terrorist attacks in Turkey and fight against
Turkish security forces. With the start of the civil war in Syria in the
following years and for PYD under the autonomous “Rojava”, PKK had to hold
weapons in higher quantity and effectiveness. Consequently, classic
insufficient weapons such as AK-47s started to be replaced by weapons regular
armies possess. The organization succeeded in decreasing effects of the
airstrikes of the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) with SA7 missiles.

An eyeshot ons PKK’s attempts of having heavy arms was discovered
on October 6, 2012 by the French
anti-terror police
. PKK’s high ranked member Adem Uzun was arrested at the
operation. He was brought in court with other three members of the organization
and was sent to prison for implication in buying arms worth 1 billion 200
thousand Euros. Among the arms in question, were anti-tank weapons.

The terrorist organization depends on its arm power which is
sourced by its financial resources which rely on the scale of narco-trafficking.
As the logic of this equation reveals, an increase in PKK’s arm capacity is
observed – especially in 2012- in parallel to an extraordinary rise in
narco-trafficking. The quantity of traded narcotics was recited in tons.

Conflict occurred with DHKP/C in PKK’s fight over being the only
head of the European narcotics market. PKK made a significant step forward in
this purpose by committing a murder in 1988 in Netherlands. The current boss of
the European narcotics market is PKK. It cares to avoid being in police and
intelligence reports. It changed its strategy to discretion to delete its name
off EU’s and USA’s terrorist organizations list. But it cannot leave the
narcotics market. In this case, criminal vendors are intermediating all of
PKK’s actions from the production process to transportation to Europe and USA,
down to street dealers. It is extremely careful at not being a ring of the

Nowadays the competition among vendors is so fierce, the scramble
that continues with mutual killings spread over Netherlands, France, Spain,
Panama, USA, Mexico, and Colombia. Murders are committed in Netherlands,
Panama, Dubai, and Turkey while the armed conflict is not avoided in other
places. After murders in Netherlands and Turkey, murderers and instigators run
to PKK’s safe haven in Northern Iraq to escape law enforcement and police

The murders of the high-ranked PKK member Sakine Polat Cansiz and
PKK’s two other female members in Paris are directly linked to this affair.
Uncontrolled expenses under the supervision of Europe’s representative Ali Riza
Altun created a deep call to account inside PKK when the French police caught
PKK on heroin money laundering which consequently decoded PKK’s organizational
structure and later showed worldwide PKK’s heavy weapon purchases after the
arrest of Nedim Seven.

There is a relation between Sakine Polat – known as a straight out
and veracious person – being assassinated while investigating PKK’s internal
affairs. All of the reports on the execution of the three women are created by
PKK to prevent the truth comes out.

In Afghanistan, Taliban contributes significantly to the increase
of narco-trafficking in the world by freeing the production of opium. The civil
war in Syria engendered the same consequence as in Afghanistan. In Syria where
cannabis is the main raw material, the heroin and marijuana industries grow
fast under PKK’s control. The region with the highest growth are Kurdish regions. At the
present, an extraordinary rise in cannabis plantation took place in Turkey and
Syria. Narcotics transformed into heroin in laboratories in northern Iraq are
sent to Europe in big piles, and to the American continent from there.

In 2012 in Diyarbakır’s Lice, Hazro, Hani, and Kulp provinces
and in Bingöl’s Genç province endless fields of cannabis plantations were
discovered. One has to know these regions are under PKK’s absolute control. A
report issued by the Ministery of Interior
declared PKK earned 1billion
dollars in 2015 from narco-plantations and trafficking. 

In order to get an idea of the volume of narco-trafficking, we
have to look at the seized quantities. In Istanbul only, 15,165kg of heroin was
caught over the past four years while attempting to cross to European

More than 13 tons of heroin were seized in an operation organized
by Turkish security forces on the offshores of Libya in a Bolivia flagged ship
that departed from Syria.

On January 2014 two tons of heroin were found on the
Armenia-Iran border crossing Meghri in a truck departed from Turkey.

Two tons of heroin were seized in Greece in a truck making its way
to Netherlands.

Let’s remember once again; security forces’ rate of successful
seizure in narco-trafficking is 1/10. It is estimated tons of non-seizable
narcotics reach Europe and the USA, poison thousands of innocent people, and
the use of the earned money in massacring innocent people with terrorism is a
shame of the humanity.

Narco-trafficking and terror are inseparable illegal acts.
Targeting only one of the two in the counter-fight will not only result in with
failure, but will also ease the business of organized crime and terror
organizations. On the other hand, a coordinated battle among countries
transited by different stages of narcotics – from the growth of plantations to
the delivery to the user – is essential.

It is unfortunately impossible to mention such a cooperation in
our region. In the USA the

Office of
Foreign Assets Control
such declared PKK’s high ranked members as Specially
Designated Narcotics Traffickers Kingpin (SDNTK). Nonetheless these PKK members
are supporting YPG in Syria. This situation clearly serves the poisoning of
innocent people by a narco-terrorist organization.                  

As another example, European countries and the USA spread loud to
their public ISIL’s oil smuggling business. Each time they accused Turkey for
complicity. They sadly never talked about hundreds of kilograms and hectares of
marijuana fields left behind by PKK/PYD when they had to leave Kobani.

In the world, political interests are mostly favored over public
interests. Terror and organized crime organizations benefit from this greed. As
positioned in one corner of the politics, NGOs seek the same self-interest; to
the point they don’t see necessary to hide their links with a narco-terrorist
organization as PKK. William Bourdon undertook the advocacy of PKK members
trying to launder dollars smudged with cocaine. The lawyer is also the deputy
director of the of the NGO Fédération Internationale des Droits de l’Homme.
Every person interested in terrorism knows the NGO led by Danielle Mitterand
has close relationships with PKK.

By the force of its
relationships in the West, PKK became the world’s third largest narco-terrorist
organization after Hezbollah and FARC. It secures transportation and
distribution in the region covering Afghanistan, North Syria, and North Iraq.
It administrates the circulation of narcotics with cocaine smuggling from
Colombia to Europe and Turkey.
