  1. He can Count on the law

    A few days ago, Count Alfons Mensdorff-Pouilly, arms lobbyist, returned to Austria as a winner.

    Mensdorff, married to the former conservative health minister Maria Rauch-Kallat, had spent some time in a British prison.

    Mensdorff was accused of bribing politicians in order to influence their decisions concerning new fighter jets for the Austrian airforce.

    The British Serious Fraud Office arrested him in London.

    Now a big white-collar criminal is free and tells us that his innocence was proven.

    But BAE made a deal, of which Mensdorff was part, bribing its way out of charges.

    This upper class criminal is seemingly above the law, while asylum seekers are convicted for stealing a piece of bread.
