British police suspicion of Qatar's bond at the murder of Deputy David Amess

The British police are investigating the possible bond of the murder of the Conservative Deputy David Amess with his close relationship with Qatar, from which he returned on a trip last Wednesday, as revealed by The Times. The author of the murder, Ali Harbi Ali, is the son of a former spokesman of the Somali Government, Harbi Ali Kullane, and could have acted by political phones, given the support of Qatar to the current president of Somalia Mohamed Adullahi Mohamed.

David Amess, 69, was in fact president of the parliamentary group created specifically in Westminster to improve Qatar relations. Amess even registered a visit at 2020 and in full pandemic, afforded by the Government of the Arab country for 10,000 euros. In July he was personally invited to the GOODWOOD Equestive Festival, also sponsored by Qatar.

Despite this new track, researchers continue to examine the connections with Ali Harbi Ali's jihadism, whose photo was made public for the first time on Monday. The young man had been referred to the radicalization prevention program (preven) by his own teachers at a school in southern London, although he did not have a history for terrorism.

Friends of the family in the Croydon neighborhood stated that the young man was further radicalized during the confinements of the Covid, listening for the videos of the extremist preacher Anjem Choudary.

Choudary provoked a wave of criticism on Saturday by saying that David Amess was possibly killed by his defense of the State of Israel. The mosques the southeastern England emitted together a joint communiqué condemning "the indefensible atrocity" and emphasizing how the deputy "Tory" had been "a pillar of support for the local Muslim community".

The British Parliament surrendered somewhat tribute to the murdered deputy at a special session chaired by Boris Johnson and between appeals to contain the wave of hate crimes against deputies.

The Vice President of the Government, Dominic Raab, admitted having received three death threats and against his physical integrity in the last two years, who denounced the police in his day. The Labor Deputy Margaret Hodge also recognized having been victim of repeated anti-Semitic attacks, even from militants of her own party.

The Vice President of the House of Commons, Eleanor Laing, appealed to "a culture of cordiality" among politicians, voters and media. "Everyone talks about how nice and gentle it was David Amess, it is a pity that the media wait for our parliamentarians to be with us to be able to say those things."

The widow of Amess, Julia, appeared in public for the first time since the tragedy and went with one of her daughters to deposit flowers to the Methodist Church of Leigh-on-Sea, where her husband was killed last Friday during an electoral act.
