UK: The process against plotters of exploding airlines ends

with one comment

Remember this? Well, a jury has not reached a verdict about some key aspects of the accusation and the Crown Prosecution Service is seeking a retrial:

Police and prosecutors were locked in crisis meetings last night after what they believed to be the strongest terrorism case ever presented to a court was rejected by a jury. At the end of a £10 million investigation and trial lasting more than two years, jurors were unable to decide whether or not a group of British Muslims were part of a plot to blow transatlantic airliners out of the sky. The outcome of the case – which featured al-Qaeda-style martyrdom videos made by six defendants – will be seen as a severe blow to Britains anti-terrorist effort.

If you read that, you would think no one was convicted: in fact, the three who pleaded guilty, Abdullah Ahmed Ali, Assad Sarwar and Tanvir Hussain, actually were convicted.

But the problem here is that four others weren’t and that jurors were unable to decide whether or not they were Al-Qaeda members.
