Try this option:

                Allow the import of keys with user IDs which are
                not   self-signed,   but   have   at  least  one
                signature.  This only allows the  import  -  key
                validation  will  fail and you have to check the
                validity of the key my other means.   This  hack
                is  needed  for  some German keys generated with
                pgp 2.6.3in. You should really avoid  using  it,
                because  OpenPGP  has  better  mechanics  to  do
                separate signing and encryption keys.
