than other terrorist victims:
British prosecutors were told more than two years ago that they had sufficient evidence to charge two Libyans over the killing of WPc Yvonne Fletcher, according to a leaked report.
A senior lawyer carried out an independent review of the case on behalf of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), in which he said Matouk Mohammed Matouk and Abdulgader Mohammed Baghdadi could be charged with conspiracy to cause death.
Both men played instrumental roles in organising the shooting at the Libyan embassy in St James’s Square, central London, in 1984, the report said.
The secret report, which was commissioned by the CPS on behalf of the Metropolitan Police, was completed in April 2007, just six weeks before Tony Blair, the prime minister at the time, held a controversial meeting with Colonel Gaddafi in Libya. The meeting formally opened trade links between Britain and the north African country.
Hey, what's a murdered cop, and a plan to murder a bunch of demonstrators, when you've got a deal to make with a muslim dictator? Good going, Tony!
I will argue with the murdered cops mother on one thing:
Queenie Fletcher, WPc Fletcher’s mother, 76, said yesterday that it was “incredibly frustrating” to be told about the report’s recommendations and “if there is enough evidence to prosecute these two men, they should face trial in a neutral country”.
No, ma'am, they should be tried in Britain. Preferably after a death penalty has been enacted for murder.
I said once that I gave Tony Blair credit for seeing that the terrorists and their backers had to be fought now, or it'd be much worse later; but in most other ways he's the kind of left-wing nanny-state politician I despise, and this is just further proof of that.
