AN African terror chief is banged up in Scotland after a secret jail switch. Warped warlord Ahmad Al Faqi Al Mahdi, 43, dodged a nine-year stretch in a squalid Mali prison by transferring to Shotts nick in Lanarkshire. Ahmad Al Faqi Al Mahdi was been moved to Scots jail The terror nut who is linked to al-Qaeda — banged up here through a deal with the International Criminal Court — has done nothing but grumble that the jail is too chilly. A prison insider revealed: “He’s been telling people in broken English he’d been warned the only problem he’d face doing time in Scotland would be the cold. “He whinges about the temperature in his cell, but he’s amazed at how easy cons have it here. “He’s telling folk he can’t believe how comfortable prison life is for criminals in Scotland. Terror nut was convicted over war crimes in 2016 “Nicks in Mali are absolutely diabolical — they’re like slums — so he must feel like he’s living in luxury over here.” Timbuktu-born Al Mahdi, who also calls himself Abou Tourab, pled guilty to war crimes at his trial at The Hague in 2016 after destroying holy sites in his homeland. He faced doing time in one of Mali’s “life-threatening” prisons, where 27 inmates died in a year from heart attacks, malaria, dehydration and HIV or Aids, according to a US Embassy report. But he became the first warlord to be held in Scotland when he was secretly transferred here from Niger last month following his conviction at the International Criminal Court. The UK has signed up to receive dangerous cons as part of its adherence to the ICC, formed 20 years ago. He has been moved to Shotts nick in Lanarkshire Critics claim his current conditions will be like a “Butlins” holiday camp compared to the prisons in Africa. And it’s feared he could be the first of many terror nuts to do time in Scotland. Our jail source said: “Al Mahdi is the first, but his being here paves the way for other dangerous war criminals to be sent here.” [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN NEWS” posts_category=”76″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] The militia leader’s wrecking campaign against religious landmarks came after murderous Islamists seized control of parts of Mali, including Timbuktu, in 2012. Targets included the 14th century Sidi Yahya mosque and Alpha Moya mausoluem. He’s one of six warlords caged by the ICC since it began in 2003, and the first Islamist militant to be jailed. The source added: “The prison service takes people from the ICC along with other jurisdictions across the world, and inmates come to Scotland to serve part or all of the sentence handed down by the ICC. “It’s part of our obligations as part of the ICC because the countries that are signatories and supporters of the ICC support them by providing accommodation for people who get a custodial disposal handed down.” Former civil servant and teacher Al Mahdi was a leading member al-Qaeda-linked Ansar Dine. The group ruled Timbuktu with an iron fist for 10 months, butchering civilians and introducing Sharia law. Armed with weapons from Libya, extremists banned music and forced women to wear the burqa. Devout Al Mahdi — who lived in a village 62 miles from Timbuktu — is believed to be one of a raft of locals enlisted by the terror group to give them credibility among the Malian community. He eventually became leader of the twisted troop, known as the Manners Brigade. The jihadist ordered lackeys to smash up 10 holy shrines during a rampage, which included unleashing mayhem with a bulldozer. When he was brought to trial, the ICC’s presiding judge Raul Pangalangan said his actions had been “a war activity aimed at breaking the soul of the people”. He has also been ordered to pay millions in compensation. But the feared fanatic’s reign of terror ended when he was arrested in 2015, after the French military routed militants. He now spends his days mingling with fellow lags in the mainstream population at Shotts nick — where the cost of keeping a prisoner is thought to be £40,000 a year. A source said: “Any prisoner coming into the system would be subject to an assessment and a risk assessment before it’s determined where the appropriate place for that individual would be. The prison service wouldn’t hold anyone in segregation for long periods of time.” Another jail insider added: “There’s a big level of secrecy. It’s all very hush-hush. When he first arrived he was given special security measures that meant there was guards on him all the time. But he’s quite a timid guy so things have been relaxed.” In an interview after he was locked up, Al Mahdi bragged he’d destroyed holy sites “rigorously”, adding: “I was more zealous than the others.” Critics slammed the decision to allow the dangerous extremist to serve his sentence in Scotland. Tory justice secretary Liam Kerr blasted: “Even the most secure, no-nonsense UK jail will seem like a Butlins compared to a Malian prison. One can only hope this man’s stay in Shotts is brief and the burden on the taxpayer is minimal.” The Government declined to comment and the Scottish Prison Service said they don’t discuss individual prisoners. The ICC refused to talk about Al Mahdi’s sentence “for security and safety reasons”. But human rights lawyer Anni Pues, who is counsel to the ICC, insisted he could only be here with the approval of Scottish ministers. She said: “The Westminster government is in charge of accepting a prisoner, but the decision in which country within the UK this prisoner serves the sentence has to be mutually agreed by ministers. In short, only if Scottish ministers agree to this can a prisoner like Al Mahdi end up in Scotland.” matthew.coyle@the-sun.co.uk We pay for your stories and videos!
