Businessman used ‘intricate knowledge’ gathered by British intelligence firm to fight extradition over corruption charges

A former MI6 boss and an ex-Liberal Democrat peer used retired intelligence officers to gather “sensitive” information from secret sources in the Romanian government to help a wealthy businessman facing corruption allegations, according to documents seen by the Observer.

Sir John Scarlett’s private intelligence firm, SC Strategy (SCS), which he co-owns with Lord Carlile, disclosed in a report produced for the businessman’s lawyers that it had obtained information from a range of well-placed “confidential sources” in Romania on sensitive issues including diplomatic negotiations and the activities of anti-corruption prosecutors.

Shamima Begum may have criminalised herself, says senior terrorism officer

Fri, 15 Feb 2019 18:26:59 GMT

Family calls for her return to UK and considers legal action to stop government blocking it

The UK’s most senior counter-terrorism officer has said that Shamima Begum, who left the UK to join Islamic State as a 15-year-old, had “potentially criminalised” herself as her family considers court action to stop the government blocking her return to Britain.

Government and counter-terrorism officials are still considering what to do after Begum, now 19, was discovered in a Syrian refugee camp after fleeing Isis’s last stronghold and said she wanted to return to Britain.

Sat, 26 Jan 2019 13:00:05 GMT

Intelligence service secretly funded Flamingo magazine to fight communist threat

Even by the demanding standards of the 1960s, Flamingo was considered a groundbreaking magazine. Mixing glamour, sex advice, culture and international politics, it was one of the first magazines to target Britain’s African-Caribbean community.

It ran from September 1961 until May 1965 and at its peak sold up to 20,000 copies in the UK and 15,000 in the US. It was also distributed in the Caribbean and West Africa, and published dedicated editions in Nigeria, Ghana and Liberia. It carried interviews with Malcolm X and advertisements for Island Records, which brought Jamaican ska music to Britain.

Festive wish from family of MI6 boss in 1938 ‘sent with wink’ to those in the know

Alex Younger insists Britain must ‘innovate faster’ to stay ahead of threats

The UK is in a technological arms race with hostile states who are using the tools of the information age to pose existential challenges to Britain’s national security, the head of MI6 warned on Monday.

In a rare speech, Alex Younger said British intelligence agencies had to “innovate faster than they can” as the country’s adversaries turn to cyber-attacks, disguised use of military force, misinformation and political obfuscation to probe and undermine Britain’s institutions and defences.

Trump dossier author suing engineering firm for alleged unpaid work

Christopher Steele alleges Germany-based Bilfinger owes his company Orbis £130,000

Christopher Steele, the former MI6 officer who wrote the Trump dossier, is suing one of Germany’s biggest engineering companies for allegedly failing to pay for work carried out by his intelligence firm, Orbis.

Steele and his ex-MI6 business partner Christopher Burrows have taken legal action against Bilfinger, a global industrial group based in Mannheim, south-west Germany. They allege it owes Orbis €150,000 (£130,000) for an investigation into Bilfinger’s activities in Nigeria.

Has a crime writer now proved the innocence of ‘Hampstead killer’?

Sun, 04 Nov 2018 08:00:23 GMT

Man jailed for murder amid claims of a cover-up to will have evidence reheard as a result of award-winning book

The brutal murder of an elderly writer in his dilapidated Regency home in north London posed one of the grimmest riddles of 2006. Allan Chappelow was found bludgeoned underneath the manuscript pages of his latest book, and his death remains at the centre of a wider, unsolved mystery. It involves MI6, the playwright George Bernard Shaw, allegations of a serious miscarriage of justice – and an extraordinary British legal oddity: a murder trial that the media was not allowed to attend, let alone report on, during many of its sessions.

Now, with the success of a new book about the case, the man eventually convicted of the killing, a Chinese dissident called Wang Yam, has renewed hope of freedom after serving nine years in English prisons. Arguments for his innocence are due to be heard by the European court of human rights in the new year, and the leading British QC Dinah Rose is taking up his cause.

UK intelligence hub opens account on app that has become growing source of citizens’ metadata

After years of secretly hoovering up metadata about millions of citizens, Britain’s spy agency has made its public foray into one of the growing sources for such information by opening its own Instagram account.

GCHQ’s account on the photo-sharing site claims the agency will provide a glimpse into its secret world. Its first post acknowledges GCHQ’s institutional suspicion about openness by including a photograph of the border fence with a “no photography” sign attached.

Sir John Sawers says theory that rogue Saudi military officers were responsible is ‘blatant fiction’

A former head of MI6 has said all the evidence suggests Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was behind the death of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and that the theory that rogue elements in the Saudi military were responsible was “blatant fiction”.

Sir John Sawers told the BBC his assessment was based on conversations with senior Whitehall sources and his knowledge of the Turkish intelligence services.

Intelligence agencies more than any other professional body have “official amnesia” and repeatedly fail to learn the lessons of the past, a panel of espionage experts has said.

Christopher Andrew, the writer of an authorised history of MI5, said intelligence chiefs ignored or did not know about historical mistakes, and the reason was obvious: the operations were always secret.

Author of Trump-Russia dossier wins libel case in US court

Suit against Christopher Steele by three Russian oligarchs thrown out by judge

The former MI6 officer Christopher Steele has won a legal battle in the United States against three Russian oligarchs who sued him over allegations made in his dossier about the Trump campaign and its links with Moscow.

The oligarchs – Mikhail Fridman, Petr Aven and German Khan – claimed that Steele and his intelligence firm, Orbis, defamed them in the dossier, which was leaked and published in early 2017. The Russians own stakes in Moscow-based Alfa Bank. All are billionaires.

The big story that the Fake News Media refuses to report is lowlife Christopher Steele’s many meetings with Deputy A.G. Bruce Ohr and his beautiful wife, Nelly. It was Fusion GPS that hired Steele to write the phony & discredited Dossier, paid for by Crooked Hillary & the DNC....

The Guardian view on the Salisbury poisonings: Russia’s responsibility | Editorial

Mon, 06 Aug 2018 16:59:24 GMT

Moscow is certain to dismiss British requests to extradite two suspects. The truth must be aired all the same

The Salisbury nerve agent attack is about to claim yet another pair of tragic victims. These victims will be the third couple to suffer in the case. The first pair were Sergei and Yulia Skripal, who were found unconscious in Salisbury in March after being exposed to the novichok nerve agent, and who eventually survived. The second pair were Charlie Rowley and Dawn Sturgess, who are thought to have picked up the original bottle containing the novichok that was used to attack the Skripals, as a result of which Sturgess sadly died.

The latest pair of victims are not human – but political. The first of them is UK-Russian relations, which are already difficult and are now certain to be further damaged by the expected UK extradition request, on which we report today, which names two Russians who are suspected of carrying out the Salisbury attack. The other is Russia’s international reputation, which will be diminished both by the investigation that has produced the request and, every bit as bad, by the inevitable scornful dismissal with which the request is certain to be greeted by Moscow and its propaganda machine.
