UK arrest in Iraq attacks probe

A man has been arrested in Manchester in connection with suicide bomb attacks on coalition forces in Iraq.
He was taken into custody after a raid by 30 police officers on a house where he had been living in Great Southern Street, Moss Side, at about 5am.

Greater Manchester Police said the arrest was not related to any threat in the UK but to "an incident overseas" involving suicide attacks in Iraq.

The man was arrested under the Terrorism Act.

A police spokesman said the force wanted to reassure the people of Greater Manchester there had not been any threat to them.

He said: "Since the beginning of the year, there have been a series of suicide bombings against coalition forces in Iraq.

"It appears that one of the suicide bombers may have travelled from the UK where he had been living."
The family of one of the suicide bombers who travelled from the UK to Israel a couple of years ago were had up over inciting terrorism. Wonder if this is similar?

V!

Take them all to the Dems Ground - strap one of them up with a little 'white noise'............. make the families watch from the splinterproof.

'Allah Akbar' my arrse.............

Take their citizenship away...... expell the blighters. (But not to Australia like the last time we tried it - I go there a lot and wouldn't like to see it overrun).

Perhaps Pakistan would take them? They seem to be letting any other terrorist/insurgent/mad fcuker lie low there.

Was there not some bloke who we nicked in 2003 in the Prisoner of War Compound who was bragging that he was from the UK, living on benefits and was going to be home faster than the soldiers guarding him.

So this chap in Manchester is probably going to get some really balanced civil rights lawyer to defend his right to indescriminately kill and maim people in the name of Allah. Really glad the Nuremburg Trials were not being conducted now, they'd have all probably got off!

Innocent until proven guilty?


Try telling that to those in Guantannamo Bay or come to think of it.......... those people in Belmarsh Jail over here.

They've been held for years now without charge or trial............

Stick THAT in your law book and smoke it.

Yes but if the offence was committed in Iraq they should be tried in Iraq

^ Ha ha ha!!! I get to be a spotter again! :D

Although there are myriad differences (and some really big ones) between English/ Welsh law and Scots law (particularly with regards to procedure), the two main Terrorism Acts (TA 2000 & T, C & Sy Act 2001) work identically in both jurisdictions. Furthermore, constables from either juristiction may execute powers under the act in the other. So, an English cop may perform all the powers of constable in Scotland (where, technically he isn't a cop) if operating under the Act.

No problems, it was my pleasure.

So in what way does Scots Law differ here exactly? March in the guilty B - he's the one in plaid?
They have a Lord Advocate where we have an Attorney General and a Procurator Fiscal where we have a DPP. We share our AG with NI but they have their own DPP

The Jocks also have the 'not proven' verdict. So there one can effectively be guilty without proof. I have no problem with that, those for whom the verdict is 'not proven' are usually fully paid up card carrying scumbags, more slippy than greased weasel poo.

Law Student? Your sneaky attempt to edit your howler has been spotted. Perhaps you should consider Media Studies, Journalism, Beckam Studies or Beach Management. :wink:
