who must be taken to Hague ,, if Britain is paying respect to murderers
A FORMER Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) agent who admitted smashing an MDC supporter’s jaw with pliers, and then pulling out their tooth, has been granted asylum in the UK along with his wife.
The 47-year-old ex-CIO man, identified by his initials PM, was originally turned down by the Home Office which said he had “committed crimes against humanity”.
But Mr Justice David Archer of the First Tier Tribunal of the Immigration and Asylum Chamber allowed his and his wife’s appeals in a judgement delivered on May 4, 2011. The Home Office is not appealing.
At the appeal hearing held in Newport in April, the Tribunal heard how PM, who joined the CIO in 1996 and quit in 2000 before fleeing to the UK, had TORTURED and KILLED President Robert Mugabe’s political opponents.
PM stated he quit the CIO after he had “enough of the torture”. He took leave before fleeing to the UK on July 1, 2000. He was granted six months leave to enter as a visitor but overstayed. He claimed asylum on October 16, 2008. His wife arrived in the UK on June 13, 2001, and claimed asylum on September 29, 2008.
On the evidence, the judge said the Home Office had presented a “compelling case that PM committed crimes against humanity”. He also rejected PM’s claim that he was acting under duress.
On PM’s claims that he passed information to the MDC while still actively in service, the judge said this was not a defence to crimes against humanity.
“He has seen too much and said too much about his colleagues to be allowed to live,” the judge added.”
