(LIVERPOOL) Crown Court Report: A man who was acting as an armourer to criminals and storing the weapons and materials to make explosives at the home of a vulnerable man he claimed to be caring for has been jailed for eight years on Monday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.20: The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said that Michael Green, 31, of Micawber Street in the Toxteth area of Liverpool, had a detailed knowledge of the world of firearms and munitions: He had acquired firearms, ammunition, and items that could be used to construct explosives: Police raids at his home and the home of a vulnerable man in the Liverpool area uncovered rifles, ammunition and materials to make explosives: The raids also revealed equipment that could be used to adapt or engineer weapons, together with books, manuals and diagrams of the same nature: The CPS said that Green was an armourer who had weapons, ammunitions and the  wherewithal to make explosives so that he could provide them to whoever wanted them to commit serious crimes: He pleaded guilty three charges of possession of a firearm and ammunition without a certificate and seven charges of being in possession of an explosive substance: Today (19 October 2020) at Liverpool Crown Court, Michael Green was sentenced to eight years in jail.

On 6 July 2018: Police executed a raid on the home of a vulnerable man in the Liverpool area. They found a whole host of weapons in a wardrobe in a locked room at the flat: Green’s fingerprints were on many of the weapons. Police went on to raid Green’s home in Micawber Close and found equipment and materials to make explosives: The man, who was then 52, told police that the room had been locked and used by Michael Green, who was acting as his carer: Green also used the details of the man to make purchases from Amazon and Paypal of items connected to weapons. One of the giveaways that it was Green buying the items was that he also used the same details to buy personalised items for members of his family.

On 15 July 2018: Green attended at St Anne Street Police Station and was arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm without a certificate and remained silent. He went on to deny the items were his and blamed the vulnerable male but the overwhelming forensic evidence led to him eventually accepting his guilt:

Senior Crown prosecutor Rachael Barber, of CPS Mersey Cheshire, said: “Michael Green had accumulated a wide range of potentially lethal weapons, ammunition and explosives in order to supply the criminal underworld: “He exploited the vulnerability of the man he was supposed to be caring for by storing these dangerous items in his home: ” Guns, ammunition and explosives bring death, destruction and chaos to our communities. They are the tools of the criminals who also bring drugs and other forms of criminality to our streets: ” Green eventually pleaded guilty, but not immediately. He has now been sentenced for his part in the dangerous and deadly world of organised crime.”

TURKEY: ‘ PM BRANDS CORRUPTION ALLEGATIONS AS A COUP ATTEMPT NOT A GRAFT SCANDAL ‘

#AceWorldNews – TURKEY:Jan.06:Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has branded corruption allegations against four ex-ministers as part of a coup attempt and has denied that the government made attempts to spare them prosecution, Reuters reports.

A parliamentary commission, mostly consisting of ruling AK party members voted on Monday not to commit the ex-ministers embroiled in the graft scandal for trial.

The allegations of corruption were put forward in December 2013. The opposition has condemned the decision not to go on with the investigation, seeing it as an attempt to cover up one of Turkey’s major political scandals.

BOSTON: ‘ JURY SELECTION GETS UNDER-WAY IN MARATHON BOMBING TRIAL ‘

#AceWorldNews – BOSTON:Jan.05: The people who lost loved ones or were injured in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings are clamouring for justice as jury selection gets under-way in one of the nation’s most closely watched federal death penalty cases in two decades AP reported.

Seating jurors in the case against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was set to begin Monday under tight security at the federal courthouse in Boston and could take several weeks.

Jurors will be chosen from a pool of about 1,200.

They will decide whether Tsarnaev planned and carried out the twin bombings that killed three people and injured more than 260 near the finish line of the race on April 15, 2013.

If they find him guilty, they also will decide whether he should be put to death.

Survivors and first responders are among those expected to testify. 

Here are a list of judges and lawyers involved in the case:

Tsarnaev, 21, is charged with killing three people and injuring more than 260 with two homemade pressure-cooker bombs left at the race’s crowded finish line on April 15, 2013. Three days later as Tsarnaev and his older brother, Tamerlan, attempted to flee the city, federal prosecutors contend that they shot and killed a university police officer.

Tamerlan, 26, died later that night after a gunbattle with police and Dzhokhar was arrested on April 19, 2013, when officers found him hiding in a dry-docked boat in a Watertown, Massachusetts, backyard.

He faces the death penalty if convicted of the largest mass-casualty attack on U.S. soil since Sept. 11, 2001.

‘ SECRET TERROR TRIAL EROL INCEDAL GUILTY OF POSSESSING BOMB-MAKING DOCUMENT ‘

Judge Mr Justice Nicol lifted an order he had made that prevented the media reporting last Tuesday’s guilty verdict against 26-year-old Incedal.

The Old Bailey jury failed to reach a verdict on a charge of committing acts preparatory to terrorism.

Incedal, from London, provisionally faces a retrial on this charge.

He had denied all allegations against him.

The jury was discharged after it failed to reach a verdict on the second charge, which involved preparing an act of terrorism with others abroad.

His co-defendant, Mounir Rarmoul-Bouhadjar, 26, pleaded guilty before the trial began to possession of a bomb-making document identical to the one Incedal had.

During the trial, the Old Bailey had heard claims Incedal was considering an indiscriminate Mumbai-style terror attack and had an address for a property owned by ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair and his wife Cherie.

“Trial By Jury: An Essential Safeguard For A Free Society”

Franz Kafka (1883–1924) was a German-language writer of novels – but he had to learn how.

Franz Kafka (1883–1924) was a German-language writer of novels and short stories, and is regarded as one of the most influential authors of the

20th century. His works, such as “Die Verwandlung” (“The Metamorphosis”), Der Process (The Trial), and Das Schloss (The Castle), are filled with themes and archetypes of alienation, brutality, parent–child conflict, and mystical transformations. Kafka was born into a middle-class Jewish family in Prague, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. He trained as a lawyer and worked for an insurance company, writing in his spare time – he complained all his life about his lack of time to write. Kafka wrote hundreds of letters to family and close female friends, including his fiancée Felice Bauer. Only a few of Kafka’s stories appeared during his lifetime in story collections and literary magazines. His novels and other unfinished works were published posthumously, mostly by his friend Max Brod, who ignored his wish to have the manuscripts destroyed. Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre are among the writers influenced by Kafka’s work; the term Kafkaesque has entered the English language to describe surreal situations like those in his writing.

My Personal View:

Just really enjoyed reading this and wanted to post it to inspire others in their writing! When first l start a blog l was not a writer and as my life had been filled full of woe, l could not express my feelings about certain, situations.

I worked in so many jobs and writing was just a way to pass the time, but God had other ideas and through a world of pain l was able to find a way to express myself! So much so that all that feeling walled up in my heart, came pouring out onto paper! The problem was l could not share it with anyone all l could do was share other people’s writing and scribblings! After a few years of reading all across the web l was able to share a little, and it made me feel better!  Then l could relate and feel for other people and release the pain in my heart and life onto paper. Some people send me comments just saying you’re a great writer and marvellous post, but their comment is related to sites that sell shoes, clothes or other products!

These people were just like me and they are all searching for what they want to say, but are so scared, as l was to tell people, just in case they look foolish! But just be yourself, and say how you feel, and use my blog’s if this will help, as l will not judge your writings, as l know how you feel!

So if you have time leave a comment and please share your thoughts an feelings about writing, as people think it looks so easy, but for me it took time to flow!

The words that now come to mind, are “The light was amongst us and we comprehended it not” well l was in the dark and one day God switched the light on in my heart.

Thank You .Never Stop Learning
