UK: MoD was warned of sexual assault risk when training Libyan troops

The Ministry of Defence was warned of security risks surrounding an agreement to train Libyan soldiers in the UK, according to newly released documents.

About 300 soldiers arrived in the UK in June to undergo training at Bassingbourn Barracks, Cambridgeshire – but their training was cut short after five were charged with sexual assaults.

Two of the arrested soldiers are awaiting sentencing after admitting their part in sex attacks, while three others are yet to enter pleas.

    Why do Western women vote for anyone advocating immigration from 3rd world countries? Do they not know what savage animals these men are? Do they all have rape fantasies? By their stupidity they even prevent Western men from being able to protect them.

    Following the termination of training, the sheep breathed a sigh of relief.

    And if the MoD had turned down the training plan because of putative ‘security risks’, the “Independent” would have led the recriminatory attacks citing racism, Islamophobia and hatred for “our little brown brothers”.
