UK ADDS SONNENKREIG DIVISION (SKD) TO PROSCRIBED TERRORIST ORGANISATION LIST AND ADDS 2 ALIASES OF THE PKK

Included in a news release from the Home Office on 24 February was the announcement that the UK was to add the SKD to the list of proscribed organisations, as well as adding the names used as aliases by the already-listed Partiya Karkeren Kurdistani (Kurdistan Worker’s Party or PKK) – Teyre Azadiye Kurdistan (TAK) and Hêzên Parastina Gel (HPG).  2 teenage members of the neo-Nazi group SKD, from Leeds and London, were jailed for terrorism offences in June last year.  The list of proscribed organisations was last issued in updated form in November – in a Notice that also details the meaning of proscription and potential offences for membership or support of a proscribed organisation.
