Mark Thatcher, son of former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, has been arrested for allegedly being involved in a coup plot to overthrow the president of Equatorial Guinea



BBC: Alleged coup attempt in Equatorial Guinea


The 51-year-old father-of-two was arrested at his home in an exclusive suburb of Cape Town.

A spokesman for South Africa's National Prosecuting Authority said he had been arrested on suspicion of providing funding and logistical assistance.

An alleged plot to overthrow the president of Equatorial Guinea has sparked dozens of arrests across Africa.

South African arms dealer Nick du Toit is accused of helping to organise the coup.

Talk about having a bad day

First he got arrested in his po-jama for coup attempt...
Then he was robbed in jail too.
Somebody took his jacket, shoes and cellphone.
Apparently he was not wearing po-jama anymore when he was robbed...

I thought cellphones in jail was not allowed...?

Archer linked to Thatcher and coup scandal



Former Conservative Party official, jailbird and millionaire author Jeffrey Archer has been linked. So has oil magnate Ely Calil. Now the creme of the British establishment is bracing to find out who else might be named in the rapidly escalating affair of Sir Mark Thatcher and the African coup.


Simon Mann, leader of the failed Equatorial Guinea coup, was last night facing up to 10 years in jail after being found guilty of attempting to possess dangerous weapons by a court in Zimbabwe.

Ely Calil link,
Lebanese millionaire who seems to know everybody


But one man finds himself facing questions that grow harder with each passing day. For Ely Calil, owner of a 12m Palladian mansion just off Chelsea's Kings Road, is a man under siege. The notoriously private Lebanese multimillionaire is accused of being at the centre of the plot to overthrow the president of Equatorial Guinea, a dirt-poor, oil-rich state on Africa's west coast.

From: News.com.au: Thatcher to appeal court order

November 25, 2004

LAWYERS representing Mark Thatcher are to lodge an appeal against a court ruling ordering the son of the former British prime minister to answer questions from Equatorial Guinea on an alleged coup plot, one of his lawyers said today.

The Cape High Court yesterday ruled that the son of Margaret Thatcher must answer questions put by Malabo prosecutors, upholding a decision by the South African justice minister.

So can someone please explain to me why Margret Thatcher's son was involved in attempting to overthrow the Equitorial Guinnie(SP?) Government? This makes no sense. Its like Chelsea Clinton trying to overthrow the Jamacian Government
This pretty much takes the cake for stupidity of political children,even though he's 51.

Here is a hint: mining rights and $$$$$$

Does that help you "get it"?

Edit: it might be oil... ah whatever... some natural resource anyway

Poor knight of the realm who will forever be known as "Thatcher's son"....

Mark Thatcher is innocent. He says he thought he was funding a medical aid helicopter.
