British Mercenary gets sentenced to Hard Time in Africa


The Week magazine
7/18/08


British mercenary Simon Mann was sentenced this week to 34 years in prison for leading a failed 2004 plot to overthrow the government of Equatorial Guinea. During his trial, Mann, a former British special-forces officer, admitted to leading a team of mercenaries on a mission to topple the leaders of the Central African nation. But he claimed the plot was sanctioned by the governments of both South Africa and Spain, with the tacit approval of the U.S., as a way to gain control of the country's oil reserves. Mann also claimed that Sir Mark Thatcher, son of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, was "part of the management team." After his sentencing, Mann was unbowed.

"Lots of love, chin up, and all that," he said to his family as he was led to prison. "I will appeal, if such a thing can be done here."

He may go, but he won't stay. Those he work for will break him out or buy him out.
