Wrexham imam jailed for six years for plotting to smuggle £18.6million of illegal arms into Libya

A Wrexham imam has been jailed for six years for plotting to smuggle £18.6million of illegal arms into Libya.

Failed asylum seeker Abdurraouf Eshati, 29, admitted to his role in the plan to send a consignment of 1,100 tonnes of ammunition to Libya via a contact in Italy in breach of a UN arms embargo on the country.

Eshati’s role was to translate the documents for a friend and a senior Libyan Army officer – referred to as ET – who brokered the deal in Italy.

But the plot – which would have armed Gaddafi loyalists – unravelled when fixers recruited to charter a cargo plane for $250,000 (£163,000) to deliver the arms disappeared with their money.

    Employers who hire failed asylum seekers are liable to be fined.
    Will they go after the mosque that hired him as an imam? No chance.
