London fears new wave of gang deaths | UK news | The Guardian

London fears new wave of gang deaths | UK news | The Guardian: "Fears are growing that the number of teenage killings in London is back on the rise after the fatal shooting and stabbing of a 17-year-old boy yesterday took the toll for this year to 19.

Scotland Yard figures show that although teenage murders are well down from a high of 29 in 2008, they are significantly up on last year, when 15 teenagers died violent deaths.

Of the 19 adolescents who have been murdered this year, all but two were stabbed or shot.

Lucy Cope, the founder of the campaign group Mothers Against Guns, said she was not at all surprised that the number of teenage murders was rising. 'It's the young gang members,' she said. 'They're reckless, they're fearless and they scare the older members.'"

Murder trial for British contractor opens in Iraq

Murder trial for British contractor opens in Iraq: "Danny Fitzsimons, who attended the hearing, is the first Western on trial in an Iraqi court since a 2009 U.S.-Iraqi security agreement lifted immunity for foreign contractors.
Iraq pressed hard for foreign contractors to be accountable for their actions after armed contractors employed by the North Carolina-based Blackwater Worldwide, now known as Xe, opened fire at a Baghdad intersection in September 2007, killing 17 civilians.
Fitzsimons is charged with two counts of premeditated murder in the deaths of two contractors, a British and an Australian, during an argument last year inside Baghdad's fortified Green Zone. He is also charged with an attempted murder of an Iraqi guard working for a British security firm.
Fitzsimons could receive the death penalty if convicted."

Missing Joanna Yeates: Similarities to Melanie murder are frightening - mirror.co.uk

Missing Joanna Yeates: Similarities to Melanie murder are frightening - mirror.co.uk: "discovery of what is believed to be Joanna Yeates' body draws chilling comparisons to the unsolved murder of Melanie Hall 14 years ago.

Similarities between the two cases are striking. Both were happy young professionals with everything to live for... and their disappearances baffled friends and family.

Melanie vanished in June 1996 after an argument with her boyfriend in a nightclub in Bath - 15 miles from the scene of Joanne's suspected abduction.

Despite a huge police operation, it wasn't until last October when a workman found parts of Melanie's skeleton hidden in plastic bags.

The gruesome discovery was made at Junction 14 of the M5 near Thornbury, Gloucestershire."

Williams had been logging onto bondage Web sites and had visited a drag cabaret in the British capital four days before his death.

: "AFP.com reports that the 31-year-old’s death has been linked to London’s gay or bondage scene, the police suggest. The police also found thousands of pounds of women’s clothes in the flat where he died. Investigators believe someone involved in the gay or bondage scene had “linked in” with Williams.

'I truly believe if he had any interest in homosexuality, he would have spoken to his sister and to me as well,' Sian Lloyd-Jones, 33, a close childhood friend from Wales said. 'It would have been fine if he was but he had too much interest in women. He wanted a girlfriend and he wanted a wife and family.” She stated she believed the many clothes found were for her and his sister.

London’s Metropolitan police revealed, however, that Williams had been logging onto bondage Web sites and had visited a drag cabaret in the British capital four days before his death.

His naked body found in the bag was examined and evidence showed that he had not locked himself in the red North Face bag. The keys to the padlock were found inside the bag with Williams’s body. He was last seen alive a week before his body was discovered.

Police are still investigating his death."

Friend: Suitcase death spy was not gay

 Suitcase death spy was not gay: "MI6 spy Gareth Williams was training to take on a new identity eight months before he was found dead, it has been reported.
And a close friend also insisted he was not gay after detectives suggested the 31-year-old may have died at the hands of a mystery bondage sex partner he met on London's gay scene.
Sian Lloyd-Jones, 33, told the Mail on Sunday that before he died, Mr Williams was studying for a new identity as he visited her central London flat.
She said: 'He said he was learning his new identity. It was all so relaxed.
'He often came round with his work. That night he came over with his box file and started going through it. He had two passports.'
And she said Mr Williams was a straight man who was looking for a girlfriend."

The enterprise, which involved career criminals from West and South Yorkshire, was only stopped after a crack team of detectives from the region's four police forces was set up to conduct a complex investigation which uncovered rounds of ammunition and more than £100,000 in cash."

Drug gang king pin jailed over 22 tonnes of cocaine and cannabis - Manchester Evening News: "members of a drug-smuggling gang which flooded the streets of Britain with cocaine and cannabis worth more than £100m have been jailed.

Michael Pollard, 47, of Rydal Crescent, Worsley, played a 'significant managerial role' as the 'director' of the north-west element of the national and international operation, a court was told.

The gang attempted to import around 22 tonnes of Class A and B drugs into the UK between February 2007 and April 2009, mainly from Spain. Rented offices in Manchester and Bolton were used as a front.

Liverpool Crown Court was told Pollard's role was to ensure that drugs were 'distributed' across the country from the north west. He was jailed for 23 years.

Pollard's brother-in-law Trevor Holland, 32, of Brazley Avenue in Horwich, Bolton, was told by a judge that he played a 'significant role' in organising and renting offices and units to act as 'gateways' so consignments could be smuggled into the country.

The court heard Holland was involved in 29 consignments. He was jailed for 20 years.

Both Pollard and Holland denied conspiracy to smuggle cocaine and cannabis but were found guilty after trial."

She returned early, on Friday 13 August, after which the pair went for a meal and then returned to her flat.
Her account to police, which Assange disputes, stated that he began stroking her leg as they drank tea, before he pulled off her clothes and snapped a necklace that she was wearing. According to her statement she 'tried to put on some articles of clothing as it was going too quickly and uncomfortably but Assange ripped them off again'. Miss A told police that she didn't want to go any further 'but that it was too late to stop Assange as she had gone along with it so far', and so she allowed him to undress her.
According to the statement, Miss A then realised he was trying to have unprotected sex with her. She told police that she had tried a number of times to reach for a condom but Assange had stopped her by holding her arms and pinning her legs. The statement records Miss A describing how Assange then released her arms and agreed to use a condom, but she told the police that at some stage Assange had 'done something' with the condom that resulted in it becoming ripped, and ejaculated without withdrawing."

FoxNews.com - Fox News Poll: Most Americans Support Arrests in WikiLeaks' Document Release

FoxNews.com - Fox News Poll: Most Americans Support Arrests in WikiLeaks' Document Release: "This week, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was released on bail from a London prison and exiled into self-described “mansion arrest” in the English countryside awaiting an extradition hearing. It’s safe to say his treatment in the United States -- were it left up to American voters -- would not be quite so magnanimous.
When voters were asked whether “the owner of the website” who received and leaked the classified government information should be arrested and put on trial, two-thirds (66 percent) think he should, according to a Fox News poll released Friday. When the focus was placed on the person who “stole and leaked the information,” the feeling is even stronger, as 83 percent favor arrest and trial."

Drug-smuggling former prison officer loses appeal against sentence | Irish Examiner

Confessions of a Prison OfficerDrug-smuggling formerprison officer loses appeal against sentence Irish Examiner: "former prison officer jailed for smuggling heroin, alcohol and other contraband in to inmates of Mountjoy prison has failed in an appeal against his four-year sentence.

The Court of Criminal Appeal held that the custodial term imposed on Dillon O’Brien (aged 38) was within the “acceptable range” for what it deemed to be a most serious offence.

Presiding judge Mr Justice Donal O’Donnell, sitting with Mr Justice Declan Budd and Mr Justice Daniel O’Keeffe, said that prison contraband of any kind was “corrosive of discipline” and created “an alternative regime” within the prison walls.

Mr Justice O’Donnell said the fact that controlled drugs, alcohol and mobile phones were smuggled in to the facility by a prison officer on a repeated basis was a serious breach of trust and could not be viewed in any benign light."

British government intervenes to help expats caught in Spanish property scams - Telegraph: "The situation is so severe that the government recently appointed a special overseas property advisor to help deal with it and to better understand the problems of those involved.
As a result, contentious issues such as illegal properties which do not have correct permits, cases where off-plan developments have not been built as specified and the length of time and cost involved in resolving property disputes were recently raised by the British ambassador to Spain with the Andalucian regional government and the Minister for Public Works and Housing.
A spokesman for the British Embassy in Spain said: 'The UK government has no authority to interfere in any matters relating to Spanish domestic legislation, whether national, regional or local.
'However, we continue to express concern at the impact these problems are having on the lives of some of our citizens and Spain’s reputation abroad, and we have raised property issues with ministers in Spain and regional governments on numerous occasions."

Man arrested over murder of exiled Pakistani politician | UK news | The Guardian

Daughter of the East: An AutobiographyMan arrested over murder of exiled Pakistani politician UK news The Guardian: "Detectives today arrested a man in connection with the murder of a Pakistani politician who was in exile in London .
The man is believed to have had business links with Dr Imran Farooq, who was beaten and stabbed near his home in Edgware, north London, in September. Detectives are thought to be investigating the political affiliations of the suspect, a 34-year-old Pakistani national.
Farooq, 50, had been a leading member of Pakistan's Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) party, but had been less active in politics since the birth of his sons, now aged five and three.
Farooq was attacked on his way home from his job at a chemist's shop. He was found near his home after neighbours witnessed what they believed was a fight.
Farooq, who was married with two young sons, claimed UK asylum in 1999 alongside Altaf Hussain, the MQM's leader. Hussain, who also lives in exile in London, has said 'enemies of the MQM' killed Farooq and they would try to kill him."

John Lennon: the last day in the life | Music | The Observer

John Lennon: the last day in the life Music The Observer: "Wednesday will see the anniversary of the killing that ended Lennon's iconoclastic career and terminated all forlorn hopes of a reunion for the most successful pop band in history. To mark the 30 years that have passed, the acclaimed British film-maker Michael Waldman has tracked down many of the people who witnessed the key events of 8 December 1980 – the last day in the 40-year-long life of a very famous man.
'I found myself sitting next to Yoko Ono [Lennon's widow] on a plane and was later able to persuade her to be interviewed,' said Waldman. 'We showed her the footage in London earlier in the year. She told me it was 'tough' to watch, but she gave her permission for us to use it.'
Waldman's documentary for ITV unravels the timeline of a crime that fans still struggle to comprehend. The film,The Day John Lennon Died, includes the recollections of a wide range of those intimately involved, including the testimony of a policeman who arrived at the New York apartment block to apprehend the gunman and the words of Yoko Ono, who reflects on the events that led to the shooting.
Ono tells Waldman of her horror at the scene and reveals that she has often wondered about her prophetic decision to record a song earlier that day with the lyric 'walking on thin ice'. While the film focuses on the experiences of the witnesses and the movements of the Lennons that day, Ono has the emotional composure to tell Waldman that her husband's decision to come straight home from the recording studio, rather than going out to eat, was not as fateful as it seems. nn,' she says."

Phuket Murder: Aldhouse Extradition 'Set for This Week' - Phuket Wan

Phuket Murder: Aldhouse Extradition 'Set for This Week' - Phuket Wan: "BRITISH kickboxer Lee Aldhouse, wanted for murder on Phuket, will appear before a video extradition hearing this week, a British newspaper reports.

Aldhouse, 28, suspected of knifing to death former US Marine DaShawn Longfellow in the early hours of August 14 after losing a bar fight, is to appear before magistrates by videolink from Wandsworth Jail on Wednesday, says the Sunday Mercury.
No details have been revealed about how the hearing will be conducted but Thai authorities are known to have been meticulous in compiling the extradition dossier.

It is believed that US authorites are equally keen to have the British man returned to face a count of having murdered the young American war veteran, who had been awarded a Purple Heart.

The British kickboxer, from near Birmingham, fled ''the paradise holiday isle of Phuket'' and was arrested when his flight from Singapore landed at Heathrow Airport on August 18, the newspaper says.

''Aldhouse, whose ring nickname was Pitbull, moved to Thailand in 2006 to study the deadly Muay Thai fighting style,'' says the Sunday Mercury."

A jealous husband who arranged for his wife to be hacked to death in west London

A jealous husband who arranged for his wife to be hacked to death in west London after she asked for a divorce is facing a life sentence after being found guilty of murder.
Geeta Aulakh, 28, was attacked with a machete as she went to collect her two sons, aged eight and 10, from a childminder last November.
The popular Sunrise Radio receptionist had her right hand cut off as she tried to protect herself from at least four "devastating" blows.
Husband Harpreet Aulakh ordered the murder in Greenford, west London, after becoming convinced she was seeing another man.
The 32-year-old, of Greenford, was found guilty of murder at the Old Bailey along with Sher Singh, 19, of Southall, west London, and Jaswant Dhillon, 30, of Ilford, east London.
Jurors were still considering the case of Harpreet Singh, 20, of Slough, Berkshire and were sent home to continue deliberations on Friday. He denies murder.
Aftab Jafferjee QC, prosecuting, said behind the "savage and determined" attack was Aulakh's "chilling" reaction to his wife's desire to leave him. "Geeta Aulakh was in the process of divorcing him and that would not be tolerated," he said. "No one else in the world could possibly have wished this utterly innocent and hard-working woman and mother any harm."

£53m raid mastermind given longer sentence

The Press Association: £53m raid mastermind given longer sentence: "Cage fighter Lee Murray was unsuccessful in an appeal against his 10-year jail sentence during a hearing in Rabat on Tuesday. But prosecutors who argued that his original sentence was too lenient had their appeal upheld and Murray was handed an extra 15 years behind bars. The sentence was for his role co-ordinating the audacious raid at the cash depot in Tonbridge, on February 21 2006.
A Kent Police spokesman said: 'We have been informed that during an appeal in Rabat, Lee Murray had an appeal against his sentence dismissed. Prosecution, however, had their appeal upheld regarding the previous sentence being too lenient. Lee Murray has been given a 25-year sentence for his involvement in the Tonbridge robbery. He was previously sentenced to 10 years imprisonment.'
In June last year, the Moroccan authorities refused to extradite Murray, originally from Sidcup, south east London, after establishing his Moroccan nationality. Since then detectives worked closely with their overseas colleagues to ensure Murray does not escape justice.
He was held in prison since his arrest at a shopping centre several months after the raid and has already served time for drug-related offences. In October last year, Murray's trusted lieutenant Paul Allen was jailed for 18 years for his part in the robbery."

Jail increase for £53m Securitas raid matermind - mirror.co.uk: "Securitas raider Lee Murray, 33, got an extra 15 years when his appeal spectacularly backfired.
The former cage fighter’s lawyers argued that 10 years was too long for the £53million heist he helped mastermind at Tonbridge, Kent, in 2006.
But prosecutors in Rabat, where the British-Moroccan fled after the audacious cash depot heist, said it wasn’t enough."

CROYDON is home to almost 200 sex offenders – the fourth highest number in London.

CROYDON is home to almost 200 sex offenders – the fourth highest number in London.: "SEX OFFENDERS: Croydon has 195 registered sexual offenders new figures have revealedCROYDON is home to almost 200 sex offenders – the fourth highest number in London.
New figures published by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) reveal Croydon has 195 sex pests walking the streets.
But, despite a request from the Advertiser, both the police and the MoJ have refused to disclose how many are complying with their sex offender's license or exactly where they are living.
These figures are the first official breakdown of how many sex offenders – people who have been convicted of a sex crime – live in each part of the UK."

Cumbrian fraud man bids to overturn £7 million payback order

News & Star | News | Cumbrian fraud man bids to overturn £7 million payback order: "jailed luxury car dealer who has been ordered by a judge to repay the proceeds of a £7 million tax fraud has won the first round of his legal battle to overturn the order.

Noel YoungNoel Young, 34, faces a possible 10 years in jail if he fails to settle the debt.
He is already serving a 28-month sentence for money laundering and conspiracy to defraud, as well as a seven-year term for causing the death of a man by dangerous driving.
But now Young, of The Green, Houghton, has won the right to appeal against the confiscation order for £6,946,747, imposed in April 2008 by a judge attempting to claw back his ill-gotten gains.
At the Court of Appeal in London, Young’s barrister Christopher Marsh-Finch convinced top judges that the confiscation sum was “arguably” too high.
He told the court that the fraudster was involved in the importation of “very high value” vehicles into the UK from the continent."

Hate crime figures paint a grim portrait of life in Britain - Crime, UK - The Independent

Hate crime figures paint a grim portrait of life in Britain - Crime, UK - The Independent: "detailed picture of hate crime in England and Wales was revealed for the first time yesterday with new figures showing that more than 52,000 incidents were recorded last year.
Nearly 45,000 incidents of race-related hate crime were reported to the police while almost 5,000 people were the victims of crime because of their sexuality.
The numbers, released by the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo), represents the first time that hate crimes have been accurately calculated over a calendar year and broken down into types of discrimination.
Previously the numbers were based on estimations. But yesterday's figures show that the levels of hate crime in Britain are worse than were previously thought. The 52,028 incidents recorded by police forces in England and Wales in 2009 is a 12 per cent increase on the 46,300 said to have occurred in 2008."
