Former British soldier, Simon Mann flew back to Britain yesterday after announcing that he would help prosecute Sir Mark Thatcher and others he claimed were involved in the failed coup on Equatorial Guinea. The freed mercenary, who was pardoned in the oil-rich state after being convicted of planning to overthrow its Government in 2004, signaled that he wanted others to “face justice.” During his trial last year, Mann had implicated Sir Mark Thatcher, the son of the former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and London-based businessman Ely Calil as being directly involved in the planning and financing of the “dogs of war” coup, reports The Telegraph.
