Iranian Arab separatists plead not guilty to terror charge in Denmark
[IsraelTimes] Three leaders of an Iranian Arab separatist group plead not guilty to financing and promoting terrorism in Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
with Saudi Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. Fifteen of the nineteen WTC hijackers were Saudis, and most major jihadi commanders were, to inclid Osama bin Laden. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman quietly folded that tent in 2016, doing terrible things to the guys running it, and has since been dragging the kingdom into the current century...
’s backing, as their trial opens in Denmark today.

The three risk 12 years in prison if found guilty.

Aged 39 to 50, the trio are members of the separatist organization ASMLA (Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz),
...Sunni Arabs who’re tired of being ruled by Shiite Persians, so they’ve been getting feisty...
which is based in Denmark and the Netherlands and which Iran considers a terrorist group.

The three, one of whom a Danish citizen, have been held in jug in Denmark since February 2020.

Gert Dyrn, lawyer for the eldest of the three, tells AFP that in his client’s opinion "what they are charged with is legitimate resistance towards an oppressive regime."

"They are not denying receiving money from multiple sources, including Saudi Arabia, to help the movement and help them accomplish their political aim," Dyrn says.

His client has lived as a refugee in Denmark since 2006.

According to the charge sheet seen by AFP, the three received around 30 million kroner (four million euros, $4.9 million) for ASMLA and its armed branch, through bank accounts in Austria and the United Arab Emirates.

The trio is also accused of spying on people and organizations in Denmark between 2012 and 2020 for Saudi intelligence.

Finally, they are also accused of promoting terrorism and "encouraging the activities of the terrorist movement Jaish al-Adl, which has activities in Iran, by supporting them with advice, promotion, and coordinating attacks."

The case dates back to 2018 when one of the three was the target of a foiled attack on Danish soil believed to be sponsored by the Iranian regime in retaliation for the killing of 24 people in Ahvaz, southwestern Iran, in September 2018.

Tehran formally denied the attack plan in Denmark, but a Danish court last year jugged

a Norwegian-Iranian for seven years for his role in the plot.
