Convicted for Terror

40 min.DK/Documentary

23-year-old Abdulkadir Celcur sits in a Bosnian jail convicted of terror. He is a Danish citizen yet no one has ever questioned the fairness of the trial Abdulkadir was given in Sarajevo. He was imprisoned and convicted together with the Swedish terrorist Maximus who recently was transferred to a Swedish prison while Abdulkadir has been permanently expelled from Denmark. Abdulkadir''s imprisonment resulted in a further 23 arrests in Denmark in a case that eventually collapsed as only one of the prisoners was sentenced.
The film questions whether Abdulkadir was given a fair trial according to European principles. There are many implications that he would never have been sentenced in a Danish court.
