Belfast rioter gets suspended jail term

Posted in British Government, police and the legal system, Terrorists with tags , , , on May 26, 2012 by britishloyalist

A rioter who was caught on CCTV throwing bricks and bottles at police in east Belfast has had a 12 month detention term suspended for two years.

The judge warned Timothy Andrew Baker, 20, he was only suspending the term because of his clear criminal record, guilty plea and good references.

“It is only by the skin of your teeth that you are going out the side door and not the back door,” he said.

Earlier, a prosecuting lawyer told the court that police CCTV footage showed Baker throwing various missiles during rioting on the Newtownards Road on 21 June last year.

It was the second night of rioting, the lawyer said adding that police were able to identify Baker because he was one of the few rioters who was not masked.

When he was arrested and interviewed, Baker admitted joining in the riot and told officers he was only in the area because he had to walk home as there was no public transport due to the previous night’s disturbances.

Baker, from the Beersbridge Road in east Belfast, later pleaded guilty to a single charge of riot.

Solicitor advocate Paul Farrell told the court that the tourism degree student “literally took a wrong turn – a wrong turn on the way home and a wrong turn in his life”.

He said that when he came upon the rioting, Baker was “quite literally a moth attracted to a dangerous flame”.

The judge told the former Royal Belfast Academical Institution pupil he had let his family and himself down and that the message had repeatedly gone out that “people who get involved in riotous situations in this city can expect custodial sentences as an almost automatic consequence”.

However, he added that Baker had “very good prospects” and he was prepared to suspend the sentence to give him a chance.

Officer Stephen Carroll killers to be sentenced

Dissident republicans Brendan McConville and John Paul Wootton are to be sentenced for their part in the murder of a Northern Ireland police officer Stephen Carroll three years ago.

Constable Stephen Carroll was shot dead in Craigavon, Co Armagh, in March 2009

Constable Carroll was shot dead by the Continuity IRA in Craigavon, County Armagh, in March 2009.

Earlier this year McConville, 40, and Wootton, 20, were found guilty at Belfast Crown Court of murdering the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) officer and will now learn the minimum number of years they must serve in Maghaberry Prison, near Lisburn, County Antrim.

Con Carroll, 48, from Banbridge, County Down, was the first policeman killed by republican terrorists since the peace process reforms which saw the Royal Ulster Constabulary replaced by the new-look PSNI.

Passing verdict on McConville, of Aldervale, Tullygally in Craigavon, and Wootton, of Collingdale, Lurgan, County Armagh, in March, Lord Justice Paul Girvan said they were guilty of a “callous and cowardly crime”.

The officer’s widow Kate Carroll, who has repeatedly spoken out against dissident republican violence since her husband’s murder, reacted to the life sentences at the time saying: “I just felt justice has been done.”

Police have pledged to hunt down the rest of the gang involved in the murder.

Con Carroll was shot dead two days after two British soldiers were murdered in a Real IRA gun attack outside their barracks in Antrim town.

He died of a single gunshot wound to the head sustained as he sat in an unmarked police car while colleagues attended a 999 call in the Lismore Manor area.

A brick had been thrown through the window of a house in the private development an hour earlier, prompting the occupants to call the police.

The gun used in the attack, an AK 47 assault rifle, was found hidden beneath an oil tank, wrapped in a black bin bag and clingfilm, in the garden of a house not far from where the officer was murdered.

A coat belonging to McConville which was recovered in the boot of the Citroen Saxo may have been wrapped around the gun when the shots were fired, the trial heard.

During the nine-week trial it also emerged that Wootton’s car had been fitted with a military tracking device and was under surveillance at the time Con Carroll was gunned down.

It showed the car was parked close to the murder scene at the time of the shooting and had driven close by McConville’s house later that night.

Almost a year after he was arrested, a man known as Witness M, emerged to tell police how he noticed McConville among a group of five men who had been close to the scene of the murder on the night the police were ambushed.

Months later two men came to his door and told him: “Keep your mouth shut.”

After the judgments, Mrs Carroll said she and the whole community owed Witness M a huge debt of gratitude for the “bravery and commitment” he showed in giving evidence.

Both McConville and Wootton refused to answer questions during scores of police interviews and they also decided to exercise their right not to go into the witness box and give evidence in the trial, which was heard without a jury.

McConville was a Sinn Fein councillor, serving one term in Craigavon Borough council in the late 1990s, before later parting company with the mainstream republican movement which ultimately agreed to accept the reformed policing service.

Wootton was also convicted of collecting information for the use of terrorism.

He was found guilty of trying to obtain the address of another policeman weeks before the murder.

Wootton was described by people who knew him as having a reputation for trouble that began in his teens.

He is too young to have known the Troubles but his trial heard he had shown a hatred for police and tried to secure details of an officer’s address by quizzing a youth who was dating the policeman’s daughter.

Wootton’s mother Sharon, pleaded guilty to charges of obstructing the investigation.

During the trial, the 39-year-old, from the same address as her son, admitted removing computer equipment from their house ahead of police searches.

Butetown faith march boosts image of Islam

Posted in islam UK, Terrorists, Wales with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 14, 2012 by britishloyalist

Walkers enjoyed the sunshine yesterday as they took part in an interfaith march designed to boost the image of Islam in Wales.

Between 40 and 50 took part in the event, a revival of a tradition instigated in Cardiff by the late Sheikh Said Hassan Ismail, who served the Muslim community of Butetown for over 60 years.

Alice Street Mosque imam Zane Abdo organised the event in honour of Sheik Ismail.

Mr Abdo said: “Right now, Cardiff has been in the media because of Muslims for the wrong reasons.

“I want to put Muslims in Cardiff in the limelight for the right reasons.

“The arrests to do with the extremism in South Wales – that is not representative of Muslims in the community.

“This march was a reflection of the true nature of the community and what this community is about.

“I hope that the media will do it justice and give credit to what we did today.”

Earlier this month, a 40-year-old Cardiff man was among seven arrested on suspicion of funding overseas terrorism with money linked to the smuggling of stimulant khat.

In February, Cardiff brothers Abdul Miah, 25, of Ninian Park Road, Riverside, and Gurukanth Desai, 30, of Albert Street, Riverside, were jailed for almost 30 years after plotting to bomb the London Stock Exchange.

A third Cardiff man, Omar Latif, 28, of Neville Street, Riverside, was jailed for 10 years and four months, with an extended period on licence of another five years.

The three Cardiff men were part of a nine-strong cell which included four men from Stoke-on-Trent and two from London.

And city Islamic teacher Abu Hajar – quoted as a spokesman for terror group Islamic Path in 2009 – came under fire last month for calling on Welsh Muslims to “physically” support the fight for sharia law abroad.

Mr Abdo said: “What we did today was a big step in rejecting extremism.

“When people are happy and walking around and smiling and coming together, that reduces extremism and pushes it to the fringes, where it should be.”

The march through Butetown started at 1.30pm at Alice Street Mosque.

Mr Abdo said: “All ages took part. Some were very young – my little daughter is a year and a half – while some of the elders were in their 70s.

“And it was people of different faiths. There were Muslims and Christians and people who did not believe in anything.

“Granted, there were not great numbers, the majority were of Islamic faith.”

Mr Abdo added he was determined there would be more marches in the future.

“This is something that Cardiff really needs,” he said.

“We are going to continue this – it is just the first.

“When we have festivals we are going to march in the street and encourage people, whether Muslims or not, to participate like they used to.”
Mr Abdo claimed the experience was so emotive he wept.

“It brought tears to my eyes and to some of the elders’,” he said.
