"Terror T-Shirts" Founders Tagged For Time
Busted!… Seven suspects associated with the “terror T-Shirt” company “Fighters and Lovers” are looking at up to six years in prison!
Just last year Stefania pointed out that a Danish company was raising money for terrorist groups by selling T-shirts.
Well there is hope for Europe, yet…
The young Terror-T hustlers got busted.
Stefania again is reporting the news:
Seven people who raised money for Colombian guerrillas and Palestinian militants through T-shirt sales have been charged under Denmark’s anti-terror law, a prosecutor said Thursday.
The suspects were associated with a Danish company that sold T-shirts over the Internet with the acronyms FARC, or Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, and PFLP, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
The company, Fighters and Lovers, said on its Web site that it would donate $7 to the groups for each $31 T-shirt sold. However, no money has been transferred to either group, and it was not immediately clear if any shirts were sold.
In charges filed Wednesday, Prosecutor Henning Fode said the seven, who were not identified, had violated a part of the anti-terror law that prohibits economic support to terror groups.
“Both PFLP and FARC have either taken responsibility for or have been blamed for acts that must be considered to be included” in the Danish anti-terror law, Fode said in a statement.
If convicted, each faces up to six years in prison.
