MI5 Linked to Death of Drugs Millionaire

(Sunday Times Online) When the millionaire drugs baron known as “Popeye” absconded from prison, the criminal underworld was sure that his friends in the British security services had helped Roddy McLean to escape.

After claims he had been allowed to build up his empire in exchange for betraying rival drug gangs to the police and intelligence services. His last will and testament to his family about how MI5 agents had helped him to flee from jail has triggered a feud between rival wings of Britain’s security apparatus.

Customs officers are demanding to know why MI5 apparently assisted the man they blame for the death of one of their colleagues.
