Mohammad Saleh sent messages to the Ministry of Defence and Prince Andrew stating that Royal Family would die
Friday 02 August - A man claiming to be the 'Muslim Prince of Spain' sent emails threatening that Prince Harry’s wedding to Megan Markle would be 'a blast' and the Royal Family would all die.
In May of last year, just days before the Royal Wedding at Windsor Castle that was attended by the senior members of the Royal Family and Hollywood A-listers, Mohammad Saleh sent the messages to the Ministry of Defence and Prince Andrew, Harry’s uncle.
He appeared Leicester Crown Court yesterday for sentencing. During an earlier hearing, the court heard that one email, sent 12 days before the wedding and apparently intended for Prince Philip, read: 'We’re at war. Your grandson’s wedding is going to be a blast.'
'You stupid British Royal Family. I am the Muslim Prince of Spain married to the illegitimate daughter of the former King of Spain, Juan Carlos's daughter called Marguerita.'
'All you British Royal Family are going to die for having me arrested and tortured in prison in the Netherlands. We're at war. Your grandson's wedding is going to be a blast.'
Saleh, of Oxford Street, Leicester city centre, sent the emails on May 7, 2018, and May 8, 2018, from a branch of McDonald’s and from a bus.
The 37-year-old was tracked down by police and arrested two days before the royal wedding, which took place on May 19 last year, with guests including the Queen, James Blunt, Elton John, Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney and David and Victoria Beckham.
While he originally pleaded not guilty to the three charges of sending malicious communications, it was decided by experts that he was unfit to enter pleas and he was found guilty of the offences.
Lucy Jones, representing Saleh, urged Judge Robert Brown to give her client a hospital order, which will require him to be detained for treatment until his doctors believe he is fit for living back in the community.
Judge Brown told Saleh, who is currently being held at the Herschel Prins Centre, a forensic mental health centre on the Glenfield Hospital site: 'I’m satisfied on the evidence of two psychologists whose evidence has been placed before me that you are suffering from a disorder that requires treatment in a mental health hospital.'
'I’m going to make that order and that hospital will provide you with a bed and a responsible clinician for your treatment and there you will remain until a doctors finds you suitable for discharge.'
Author's comment: Once again we see that the 'mental health' card is played for yet another Muslim who threatens an act of terrorism in the UK. It is as if the authorities are wilfully blind to the pattern of attacks and threats that is unfolding. Of course, to actually recognise the problem for what it is would mean they would have to do something about it. Far easier to pretend that it is just another 'mental health problem'.
