Hospital employee convicted for selling information to national newspaperMetropolitan Police – May 29, 2015 16:20 BST

An employee at a hospital’s high security unit has been convicted for selling information to a national newspaper.
Alan Hagan [Elveden 71], who worked at Ashworth Hospital, a high security facility, in Liverpool, was today, Friday, 29 May, was found guilty of misconduct in a public office.
Hagen, 48, (13.01.67), of Melling Mount, Kirkby, Liverpool, was convicted at the Old Bailey.
The court heard that Hagan, who was working in security at the hospital, was in contact with a journalist from the now defunct News of the World newspaper in January 2008.
Shortly after this in February 2008, an article concerning drugs being recovered from a patient’s room appeared in the paper. A few days later a payment of £1,000 to Hagan was approved by the paper.
Later that year, Hagan brought a covert camera into the hospital against all the hospital’s security rules and patient confidentiality. He used it to take video footage of the same patient, which he sent to the journalist at the newspaper. Hagan was in negotiations with the newspaper regarding a £50,000 payment for the images.
When Hagan’s home was searched by detectives from Operation Elveden, a covert pen camera was recovered, which contained videos and pictures of the patient. E-mails relating to the contact between him and the journalist were also recovered from Hagan’s computer.
Detective Chief Superintendent Gordon Briggs, leading on Operation Elveden, said:”Hagan breached very important rules relating to the security of a psychiatric hospital, patient confidentiality and public trust, when he smuggled a covert camera into Ashworth Hospital.
“He was in lengthy negotiation with the journalist, eventually being offered the huge sum of £50,000 for the footage of a notorious patient.
“Hagan was motivated by money; he was not acting in the public interest. The jury’s decision to convict him shows just how seriously they felt the abuse of his position, and the abuse of the trust his employers placed in him, was.”
He will be sentenced on Friday, 26 June at the Old Bailey.

DEAD: Sally Jones Britain’s Most Wanted Woman and Islamic State Recruiter Killed

Published

The White Widow Sally Jones has been Killed in a US Drone Strike, Jones who had planned many terror attacks fled the UK to become a IS Recruiter.

She was Britain’s Most Wanted Woman. It is believed she died in a US Air Force Drone Strike which happened near to the border of Syria and Iraq.

Jones was killed in June 2017, with the news kept hush because of fears that her 12-year-old son may have also been killed.

Jones left her home in Chatham, Kent in 2013 with her son Jojo to join Islamic State in Syria. During this time she often used her son as a human shield to save her own life.

The CIA and MI6 spent months tracking down Jones before they launched a Drone Strike and killed her.

She played a key role in the recruitment of young females becoming jihadis often leaving their families in the middle of the night to head out and join the Islamic State.

Despite the claims that Jones is dead, the US cannot 100 percent be sure she is dead, as they made no attempt to recover any DNA, But they are very confident that she is dead.

Drone Strikes are very clever in the way they work as they are able to follow targets for a number of weeks before launching a missile attack without any civilians being killed.

However, they cannot confirm if 12-year-old brainwashed Jojo has been killed also, something which the Americans could face a backlash over.

Jojo was brainwashed he faced years of forced lessons in radical Islam & firearms training. He recently featured within an IS execution video standing behind a row of prisoners who was kneeling on the floor before pulling the trigger and murdering them.

Jones converted to Islam and was nicknamed the White Widow after her Islamic State husband Junaid Hussain was killed by a drone in 2015.

Hussain aged 21 and from Birmingham brainwashed Jones to such a degree she became head of recruitment for young women and schoolgirls within the Islamic State.

Jones & Hussain planned many attacks across Europe and America and is believed to have been a key recruiter and brainwasher of many wanting to join the Islamic State.

Jones was linked to the planning of a number of major terror attacks including one which planned to blow up the Queen and Prince Philip on the streets of London during the VJ celebrations.
