Killer jailed over poison plot
Apr 13th, 2005, 11:55pm
 
An al-Qaeda suspect who stabbed to death a policeman has been jailed for 17 years for plotting to spread ricin and other poisons on the UK's streets.
 
Kamel Bourgass, 31, is already serving a life term after being convicted of murdering Detective Constable Stephen Oake during a 2003 raid in Manchester.
 
Four other men were cleared last week of taking part in a conspiracy. A second trial has been abandoned.
 
Anti-terror chief Peter Clarke said a "real and deadly threat" was averted.
 
     
The impact on the public, if he had succeeded in what he wanted to do, is incalculable

Trials give terror battle insight
Questions over ricin conspiracy
 
The BBC's Home Editor Mark Easton says the authorities in Britain believe there was a plan to co-ordinate chemical and biological attacks across Europe.
 
In London targets were to include the underground.
 
And in Paris the authorities suspect the Metro and Eiffel Tower could have been attacked.
 
In a statement, Deputy Assistant Commissioner Clarke said: "The impact on the public, if he [Bourgass] had succeeded in what he wanted to do, is incalculable."
 
And, paying tribute to DC Oake, he went on: "He died protecting the public from a vicious terrorist.
 
"It would be hard to underestimate the fear and disruption this plot could have caused across the country."

What i don't understand is, if the terrorist is a resident in the UK why can't we just hang him because the acts he is involved in is treason in anyones book.
Don't forget death by hanging is STILL on the statute book for treason. Shocked
Just think how much money would be saved if the courts started doing this. Grin

Hi m8's,
 
I have this idea to rent prison space from Russia or similar to keep out worst criminals off the streets. Then we will gain from cheaper prison space and Russia will gain from income and the criminals wont have this holiday time they have in Swedish, or Brittish prisons. Grin
