    It's time these six innocent men are released from Indian prison.

    There are 6 innocent British Veterans being held in jail in India. They could be there for another 4 or more years. This video has been compiled by Yvonne Machugh from Glasgpw, along with other wives, to try to bring this awful injustice more into the general public's eye. What I'd like to know is what is our Government doing about this. Just watch the video, and maybe things will become clear to you.

    Customs officials and police found 35 guns, including semi-automatic weapons, and almost 6,000 rounds of ammunition on board the ship which did not have permission to be in Indian waters.

    You have a strange idea of what constitutes innocence, Gill.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Re: It's time these six innocent men are released from Indian prison.

    Apparently the men were part of a patrol, trying to protect merchant shipping from attack and piracy, which was rife at the time. Hence the guns and the ammunition on board. At first, it would seem, that the Indian authorities could find no reason to disbelieve that the vessel had accidentally strayed into Indian waters and the case was dismissed. Then there was a change of heart and the six men were arrested and jailed without charge, it would seem. If you have more evidence of how, why, when and where in this case, then perhaps you would explain further so that we can all be up-to-date with this mystifying situation. Of course, you have watched the video haven't you ?

    Were they about to invade a small island?
    Is the question about whether the firearms existed or planted or did they have a goid excuse? Pirates?
    Maybe they dont know how to use a fishing rod? Or they were on their own whaling cull?

    With whose authority, Gill? Which government licensed them to act as sheriff?

    Oh, well if thats the case then the shipping company will have records and contracts in relation to their security role. How trained military personel strayed where they shouldnt be is puzzling because it means they left their post.

    I understand that there was a bad storm at the time they strayed from the accepted area. Perhaps their compass went on the blink at the wrong time - before anybody else suggests that !

    I do know. The answer is "with none", Gill, which gives them no authority whatever to be anything other than civilians. And they're taking 35 guns, including semi-automatic weapons, and almost 6,000 rounds of ammunition into India's territorial waters without declaring them or getting permission? You honestly think that's legal, or that it should be? Would you expect HM Customs and Excise to arrest a boatload of Indian nationals off Margate tooled up like that?

    Its not "sherriff" spot. Plenty of companies use protective services. Governments as well.
