Prosecutors ask for 30-year prison sentence for Briton accused in Equatorial Guinea coup plot Print
2008-06-17

MALABO, Equatorial Guinea (AP) - Prosecutors are requesting a 30-year prison sentence for a British ex-officer accused of masterminding a failed coup plot in Equatorial Guinea.
Attorney General Jose Olo Obono has told the court that the charges against Simon Mann are serious enough to merit the death penalty. But an extradition agreement prohibits the death penalty

Mann is accused of trying to overthrow longtime President Teodoro Obiang. Prosecutors call him the ringleader of a coup plot financed by the son of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
Mann claims he and his team were hired as presidential bodyguards.
The Briton was extradited from Zimbabwe in January. His trial began Tuesday. A verdict is expected this week.
