“Investigators said they were given to understand there would be “another 7/7” and the loss of “British lives on British streets” if they carried on delving into the payments.”

Blijkbaar hebben ze de teugels stevig in handen, die saudi’s.

Bombarderen die handel. Oh nee, ze hebben veel olie.

Uit het commentaar in de Observer hierover:
What do these two cases have in common? The answer is that they show how fragile the rule of law can be whenever anti-terror policy is invoked. BAE executives accused of corruption wield influence at the highest level of government such that the allegations can be kept away from court. By contrast, just a hint of suspicion around Mr Raissi was sufficient to have him imprisoned without trial. The spectre of al-Qaeda, however bogus in each case, was a trump card that swept all other considerations from the table.
