MSAAD: 'I WAS STITCHED UP ' SAYS THE SINGER WITH CASH IN HER KNICKERS


cnl_n_msaad_web.jpgBRENT/HOLLOWAY

A university student claimed she was ‘stitched up’ by her friend when she was recruited to smuggle 20,000 euros in her knickers to an alleged terrorist fighting for ISIS in Syria.

Nawal Msaad, 27, was offered £1,000 to take the money on a flight to Turkey, but said she thought when first approached by El-Wahabi that it was for a hairdressing job.

She was stopped at Heathrow Airport when trying to board the plane, and produced rolls of banknotes stuffed in her pants.

Msaad allegedly was part of a plot hatched by her pal, Amal El-Wahabi, 27, to send the cash to her husband Aine Davis.

Convicted drug dealer Davis, also known as Hamza, had joined jihadi forces in the war-torn country, and begged the mother of his two children El-Wahabi to join him.

CUNNINGHAM: SOCIAL WORKER ON THE FIDDLE


MANCHESTER

BOLAND: NURSE WHO CALLED COLLEAGUE A SLAG IS PROMOTED


SOUTHEND

A senior nurse who harassed a colleague by repeatedly calling her a 'slag' has been promoted and will teach others about professional boundaries, a tribunal heard today.

Michael Boland persistently humiliated his fellow nurse in what he called 'a culture of banter' at the Spire Wellesley Hospital, Southend, Essex.

Boland has been found guilty of two months of abuse towards the woman, referred to as colleague A, that started almost immediately after she joined the hospital in March 2012.

However, the nurse has been promoted to a more senior role at the same hospital, and has prepared a presentation about maintaining professional relationships to show to his colleagues.
