From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Syria arms silence ‘derailed terror trial’
Tuesday 2nd June 2015
THE government’s refusal to come clean on whether it sent arms to Syrian rebels contributed to the collapse of a terrorism case against a Swedish man, his lawyer said yesterday.
Bherlin Gildo, 37, was on his way to visit his wife in the Philippines in October last year when he was arrested in transit at Heathrow airport and accused of attending a terrorist training camp in Syria between August 2012 and March 2013.
But the case against him threw up “contradictions” regarding arms transfers to anti-government forces in Syria and, following a Crown Prosecution Service review, the government declined to elaborate on its alleged role.
In a brief hearing at the Old Bailey, prosecutor Riel Karmy-Jones offered no evidence against Mr Gildo.
Like under Swedish law, it also does not seem to be a crime that Swedish nazi ex-soldier Mikael Skillt fights a bloody war in the eastern Ukraine as a mercenary officer in the Kyiv government’s forces.
Two ongoing Canadian terrorism trials provide fresh evidence of the state’s use of informants and undercover agents to implicate vulnerable and often mentally unstable individuals in alleged terrorist plots: here.
