A taxi driver whose firm has contracts with several schools appeared in court yesterday charged following a counter-terrorism investigation into a network suspected of smuggling a banned stimulant drug from Britain to America.
Married father-of-six Daud Ali, 40, of Wakehurst Place, St Mellons, Cardiff, was also charged with possession of a fake Norwegian passport.

He was held – along with co-defendants Adrian Wall, 49, and Liiban Nursharif, 30 – on Tuesday after officers swooped on homes in Cardiff, London and Coventry.

The men were arrested under the Terrorism Act as part of an investigation into the illegal exportation of khat to the US and Canada where it is a controlled substance.
The three men are jointly accused of conspiracy for allegedly mislabelling parcels being sent from the UK.

The three defendants spoke only to confirm their names, dates of birth and addresses when they were brought before Westminster Magistrates’ Court in central London.

They sat with arms folded during the hour-long hearing where Ali and Nursharif were remanded in custody.

Wall was granted bail subject to restrictions.

The three suspects were among seven people arrested by the Met’s counter-terrorism command during a pre-planned, intelligence-led operation earlier this week.

The remaining four suspects – a woman aged 45 and three men aged 47, 45 and 42 – continue to be held under the Terrorism Act, Scotland Yard said.

Homeland Security Investigations in America and officers from the UK’s counter terrorism network, the UK Border Agency and local forces were also involved in the operation.

Wall, a married father of four of Pitt Road, Thornton Heath, Surrey; Nursharif, a single man of no fixed abode and Ali will next appear at Southwark Crown Court for a plea and case management hearing on July 6.

Military test for Olympics security

RAF Typhoon jets have arrived at an air base in London in preparation for the Olympic Games as military chiefs said they were ready to react to a “9/11-type attack”.
The four high-speed jets landed at RAF Northolt in west London ahead of a major military exercise to test security for London 2012. It is the first time fighter aircraft have been stationed at the base since the Second World War.
The Typhoons will take part in Exercise Olympic Guardian, a nine-day training operation over the skies of the capital and the home counties that runs from until May 10.
Air Vice-Marshal Stuart Atha, air component commander for Olympics air security, said: “What we will have is a plan that has many levels to it which will allow us to deal at one end – which is that 9/11-type attack – perhaps down to the lower and the slower type of threat that we may face.
“There is no specific threat and all we are doing is having in place what we would describe as prudent and appropriate measures in place, in order that we could react if required in a timely and appropriate fashion.”
Air Vice-Marshal Atha said he hoped the exercise would have “an effect on the mind” of any potential attackers, and added: “I would hope when they see how we are preparing they might be deterred from making any threats to the Games.”
The RAF warned that people in south-east England will notice an increase in air activity at certain times, in particular this weekend.
Other aircraft involved in the exercise include Royal Navy Sea King helicopters temporarily based at RAF Northolt, RAF Puma helicopters based at a Territorial Army centre in Ilford, east London, and Army and Royal Navy Lynx helicopters on HMS Ocean in the Thames.
Defence Secretary Phillip Hammond said: “Whilst there is no specific threat to the Games, we have to be ready to assist in delivering a safe and secure Olympics for all to enjoy.
“The fact that our state-of-the-art Typhoons will be stationed at RAF Northolt underlines the commitment of the Ministry of Defence and our armed forces to keeping the public safe at a time when the world will be watching us.”

Ground-to-air missiles are to be sited on the roof of a block of flats near the Olympic site as part of a huge security operation to protect the Games.
The Army will station soldiers and high-velocity surface-to-air missiles on the residential block in East London to ward off airborne terror threats.
Residents in the private, gated flats in Bow have received a leaflet warning them that a team of ten soldiers and police will be placed at the building – home to 700 people – for the duration of this summer’s Games.
It follows an announcement by Defence Secretary Philip Hammond in November that missiles might be used to safeguard the Olympic site.
Last night, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) confirmed the missiles would be deployed within the next few days. They describe them as ‘a useful deterrent’.
Resident Brian Whelan, a journalist, said the MoD leaflet says the missiles will be fired only as a last resort.
He said: ‘They are going to have a test run next week, putting high-velocity missiles on the roof just above our apartment. They’re stationing police and military in the tower of the building for two months.
‘It’s a private, gated community with an old watch tower which is now a lift shaft.
We have an MoD leaflet saying the building is the only suitable place in the area. It says there will be ten officers plus police present 24/7. I’m not sure if they are going to live in the building. We have a gym and a pool and people have seen them there so it makes you think it will be some sort of Army base – it’s not ideal.
‘The property management company which runs the place put up posters and gave out the leaflets today.
‘The general tone was, “Great news, aren’t we lucky”, but that’s not normal, it’s not something people should have put on them.
‘I’ve looked these up [the missiles] and I don’t think they’re the kind of thing you can fire over a highly populated area like Tower Hamlets, think of the debris.’
Mr Whelan said the leaflet poses a series of questions residents might ask, such as: ‘Will this make me a target for terrorists?’
The 28-year-old said: ‘But the answer on it is that we will be safer with it here.
‘From the few people I’ve spoken to, and the security we have here, they’re not happy about it. I don’t think it needs to be here at all.’

Warning: High-velocity surface-to-air missiles will be stationed on the residential block in East London to ward off airborne terror threats

Launch site: The Army will station soldiers and high-velocity surface-to-air missiles on this residential block in Bow Quarter, East London, to ward off airborne terror threats

Protection: Defence Secretary Philip Hammond saw some of the Rapier System ground-to-air missile launchers during a visit to RAF Waddington near Lincoln, earlier this year

Target: Security agencies fear the Olympic site in Stratford, east London, will be targeted by terrorists and are preparing for a range of difference scenarios

Stop wreckers

THE moron who spoiled the Boat Race by swimming in front of the Oxford and Cambridge teams may have unintentionally done us a service.

Because Trenton Oldfield showed how the London Olympics could be wrecked by the bogus protests of attention seekers.

Instead of an admiring world watching a supreme sporting event we’d be putting on one long, embarrassing episode of Britain’s Got Trouble.

Which is why the Government must now announce a deterrent with real teeth.

Idiots such as Oldfield must be in no doubt anyone who disrupts the Games will get a stiff jail sentence. A mandatory jail sentence.

Justice Secretary Ken Clarke’s Sentencing Bill is going through parliament. A simple amendment to it can make such tough jail terms law.

This is not about crushing genuine protest. It is about thwarting cranks and ego maniacs.

The police and MI5 are already at full stretch combating the terrorist threat. And as Olympic rowing hero Matthew Pinsent pointed out yesterday, it is impossible to stop every clown hell bent on mayhem.

The marathon, the triathlon and some of the cycling takes take place on public roads. They are easy targets.

The 2004 Athens Games are remembered not for sporting excellence — but for a defrocked priest who rushed on to the track in the Marathon and grabbed the leading runner.

We do not want London 2012 similarly shamed. Meanwhile, Oldfield has been charged with a public order offence and will be hauled before magistrates.

Here’s a suggestion if he’s found guilty. He wrecked the rowers’ big day after years of training.

Why not lock him in a dressing room with the two teams for a few hours?

Falklands war remembered 30 years on

Posted in War with tags , , , , , , , , on April 2, 2012 by britishloyalist

PRIME MINISTER David Cameron today marked the the 30th anniversary of the invasion of the Falkland Islands with a reaffirmation of Britain’s determination to uphold the islanders’ right to determine their own future.

Three decades after Argentinian troops seized the islands’ capital, Port Stanley, Mr Cameron paid tribute to the Task Force sent by Margaret Thatcher to take them back.

However, in a gesture of reconciliation, the Prime Minister said it should be a day to remember both the 649 Argentinians who died in the conflict as well as the 255 British armed forces personnel.

The run-up to the anniversary has been marked by a ratcheting-up in tensions between London and Buenos Aires, with the Argentine government of President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner loudly reasserting its claim to the islands.

In an article in the Daily Telegraph today, Foreign Secretary William Hague described Argentina’s recent aggressive actions as “deeply regrettable” and said the government’s statements “have impressed few people, including in South America”.

He went on: “We should remind the world that in the years since their liberation the Falkland islanders have repeated – without qualification or equivocation – their wish to keep their constitutional status, their national identity, and to live peacefully with their neighbours in Latin America.

“As long as the people of the Falklands continue to express that view, the UK will defend and support their right to do so.”

Meanwhile, the widow of lt Col “H” Jones told the newspaper she hoped Britain would “do it all again” if Argentina launched a fresh occupation of the Falklands.

Lt Col Herbert Jones, known as “H”, died while leading a charge against an Argentine machine gun post at Goose Green.

Sara Jones said in an interview: “The islanders have always been fiercely British and want to stay that way. I would like to believe that we would, if we could, do it again.”

In a statement to mark today’s occasion, Mr Cameron was adamant that Britain would not compromise on the central issue of the islanders’ right to self-determination.

“Thirty years ago today the people of the Falkland Islands suffered an act of aggression that sought to rob them of their freedom and their way of life,” he said.

“Today is a day for commemoration and reflection: a day to remember all those who lost their lives in the conflict – the members of our Armed Forces, as well as the Argentinian personnel who died.

“Today, we salute the heroism of the Task Force which set sail to free the islands.

“We are rightly proud of the role Britain played in righting a profound wrong. And the people of the Falkland Islands can be justly proud of the prosperous and secure future they have built for their islands since 1982.

“Britain remains staunchly committed to upholding the right of the Falkland Islanders, and of the Falkland Islanders alone, to determine their own future.

“That was the fundamental principle that was at stake 30 years ago: and that is the principle which we solemnly re-affirm today.”
