A Danish appeals court has given conditional jail sentences of four and five years to two men who had been found guilty of terror financing for providing millions to PKK terror organization

The Eastern High Court on Wednesday said the sentences were made conditional because the actions had taken place more than a decade ago and one of the defendants is 75 years old.

Last week, the court overturned their previous acquittal while upholding the exoneration of eight others charged with transferring at least 130 million kroner ($20 million) to the PKK.

The PKK-listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU-resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in July 2015.

Since then, more than 450 Turkish security personnel have been killed and over 4,900 PKK terrorists killed.
