Silhan Özçelik, an 18 year-old Kurdish woman from London, has been convicted of trying to go abroad join the PKK. Silhan has been held on remand in Holloway prison since January charged with ‘engaging in conduct in preparation to for giving an effect to an intention to commit acts of terrorism’ under section 5 (10)(a) of the Terrorism Act 2006. It’s apparently the first time a British person has been convicted for trying to join the PKK.
