The Royal Regt Of Scotland Sells Ammo

EXPLOSIVES

A judge yesterday (27 Oct 08) called on the Army to hold an "urgent inquiry" after jailing three soldiers for stealing explosives, detonators and grenades to sell to drugs gangs.

Mr Justice Sir Robert Akenhead told Maidstone crown court Col Sgt Garry Graham, 37, L/Cpl Martyn Fitzsimmons, 28, and Sgt Kieran Campbell, 27, had "betrayed" their country.

Fitzsimmons and Graham were each jailed for 12 years and Campbell, who gave evidence against the others, for four. The munitions went to Glasgow gangs. Army bullets found in raids are thought to have been stolen by others.

The trio served with the Royal Regiment of Scotland, at Howe Barracks in Canterbury, Kent.
