Contract killing in SW Wales

In view of today's verdict of guilty on the two alleged heroin-high killers of the schoolboy Aamir Siddiqi, will the person who paid them to murder now also be charged with murder? The police know and have identified the intended victim and they allegedly also know the identity of the man who paid these so-called hitmen, that makes that person, to my way of thinking, just as guilty of murder as the two who will surely be going to prison for a very long time.

Both attackers have been convicted of murder, and sentenced to serve a minimum of 40 years in prison.

The Judge told them "If you die in jail, few will shed a tear and many will say it will be more than deserved"

Next thing is that they will claim that the judge breached THEIR human rights.

"....they will claim that the judge breached THEIR human rights".

Why would they do that?

Quite simply for money. I'm sure that their lawyers are even now studying the case of William Begg -he of the "Limbs in the Loch" case - whose lawyers got him €6,000 for HIS "Breach of Human Rights" case while he is still serving his sentence for murder. Not only that, they have now launched another appeal in Strasbourg to get that award increased!

Of course most of the awarded "compensation" €4,000 goes to pay his legal bills (read lawyers)

I'm not sure I see the relevance of the William Begg case since the judgement in his favour was a result of the very slow appeals process. Since these two men have only just been convicted they can hardly claim their case is the same.

I wrote " I'm sure that their lawyers are even now studying the case of William Begg" Nowhere did I imply that they would copy the "delayed appeal" tactic.

Then what relevance does the Begg case have at all?

If you can't see it, it's not my problem.

All I can see is that you seem to have dragged up an obscure case about a very complex point of law and tried to use it to trot out the old nonsense about criminals not getting punished because of the ECHR.
