Weirdest Headline Of The Day . Mann fingers Mark Thatcher in E. Guinea plot

Now don’t get us wrong upon first seeing this headline we felt that this was an obscene headline indeed. Upon looking into the story further, we realised that it was more than that. It was actually the story of a rich boy being protected by his mothers friends in high places within the British Establishment. Feel free Mr Mann to carry on fingering this little rich boy all you want. If there is any justice he’ll be sitting in a cell right next to you and getting more than a mere fingering from the burly prison guards.

In Brief:

MALABO, March 30 (Reuters) – A British mercenary awaiting trial in Equatorial Guinea for leading a failed 2004 coup has said the son of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was involved in the plot, the public prosecutor said on Sunday.

Jose Olo said former British special forces officer Simon Mann had testified that Mark Thatcher knew all about the scheme to overthrow President Teodoro Obiang Nguema, who has ruled the oil-rich West African country since 1979.

Thatcher has in the past admitted chartering a helicopter for Mann, who was arrested in 2004 in Zimbabwe with 70 mercenaries en route for Equatorial Guinea, but he has denied any knowledge of the planned coup.

Olo said authorities in Equatorial Guinea — sub-Saharan Africa’s third-largest oil producer — were still taking testimony from Mann ahead of a trial expected to start in May.

Mann admitted in an television interview broadcast in Britain this month that he plotted to oust Obiang.

“He has testified that Thatcher knew all about the operation,” Olo told Reuters. “If we can gather enough evidence we will start a case against (Thatcher). … We have still not taken a decision.”
