The UK's Most Bizzare Court Case For A While

I put up this story on ShortNews and simply had to share it with you. The source article explains it in more detail but basically it goes like this:

A gullible teacher was approached by a car salesman pretending to be an undercover anti-terrorist agent and agreed to work with him by pretending to be gay in a twisted plan to expose 'IRA terrorists' at his college.

He was told to undergo a series of training exercises which included 'blindfolded' beatings by the accused, cross-dressing, having a 'ridiculous' hairstyle, assulting a fellow student and chasing another one for a kiss.

The 'MI5 officer', salesman Robert Hendy-Freegard, has been accused at Blackfriars Crown Court, London, of a variety of offences, including conning victims of £650,000 and threats to kill in a bizzare plot lasting over a decade.
