"Guinea’s embassy had refused to issue him travel documents"
Aren't we supposed tobe the Lion? when we roar ambassadors cringe in fear and do our biding.
Have they forgotten that this is Great Britain? well, it would seem so.
No, the UK arms manufacturers dictate our foreign policy and any chance of their judgements being overturned are about zero.
If Guinea wants to get rid of it's political riff-raff and there is an arms deal in the pipes, then the UK will bow to their needs and wishes.
However his compensation should go to his victims, but if the judge had no law by which he could impound his compensation,then what could he do? Nothing. So it's back to the politicians that legislate.
I notice in the article that there was a Tory politician, making one of their usual hypocritical comments.
No, we are just not great any-more.
