A group of men are preparing to go to prison for the first time in their lives for a crime they didn’t commit.
But as the men’s lawyers prepare to argue that the men are innocent, the UK Government is threatening to bring the men before a court that could have a “tough” sentence.
Key points:The men are charged with offences including conspiracy, possessing indecent images and possessing indecent materialThe men were caught on CCTV at the Manchester airportThe men face prison sentences of up to 10 yearsThe Metropolitan Police say they have “no reason to believe” the men were involved in the airport incident in which three men were arrested and charged in May 2016.
The men have been charged with three offences including possession of indecent images, and three counts of possessing indecent materials.
Their lawyers have said they will argue that they are innocent of the charges, and say the men could face a maximum sentence of 10 years.
The charges stem from a series of undercover investigations carried out by the Metropolitan Police in May, during which undercover officers posed as passengers on a flight to Manchester.
The three men arrested, who were travelling to Turkey, have been jailed for two years and eight months.
In a statement, the Metropolitan police said: “The men faced serious charges and we take seriously the threat to their lives and wellbeing.
We have no reason to think the men did anything wrong.”
The men will be arguing that they have been unlawfully charged.
“What you need to know about the case:The Metropolitan police have admitted that the arrests in May were part of a criminal investigation into alleged “paedophile” material being produced and distributed online.
In its statement, it said:”The investigation was not about paedophilia.
The men were being arrested on suspicion of possessing and distributing indecent images of children, in breach of the Serious Crime Act.
“They were arrested under the Computer Misuse Act 2001, and it is believed that they may have been in possession of child exploitation material.”
A spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service said it was not prepared to comment on the case at this time.
However, a spokesman for Home Office’s Serious Crime Command said it is “working closely with the police” and that it has “no plans” to bring any further charges against the men.
The two men have now pleaded not guilty to three charges of possessing child exploitation images. “
They arrested two men, aged 18 and 18, who subsequently appeared before Manchester Magistrates’ Court on October 6, 2016.
The two men have now pleaded not guilty to three charges of possessing child exploitation images.
In the absence of any further evidence, we cannot comment.”
What happens next?
In its response, the police said that it had not received any specific requests for the men to be brought before a trial but it was reviewing the circumstances surrounding their arrest and the allegations that they had committed the offences.
However, the spokesman said it would be up to the Crown Office whether the men faced a trial.
