Bin Laden's Son Wants UK VISA
I had this picture up on my computer screen and The Man thought it was Frank Zappa... No, it's 26 year old Omar bin Laden, terrorist Osama's fourth son. Though he "admits attending terror training with the Al Qaeda leader in Afghanistan", he is currently in the midst of convincing Embassy officials that his marriage to Jane Felix-Browne (26 years his senior) is authentic. This is her 6th marriage and Omar's second.
"...The couple plan to set up house in Jane's £550,000 home in Moulton, Cheshire, have a child through a surrogate mother and work as "peace activists".
The son of the world's most wanted man has divorced his first wife, the mother of his two-year-old son, to prove his marriage to Jane is genuine.
The couple claim they have been assured the visa application will be given the green light when the embassy receives the divorce documents from Saudi Arabia, proving Omar is solely married to Jane.
He and Jane, who has three sons and five grandchildren, married following a whirlwind romance in September 2006 after meeting outside the Pyramids in Cairo.
The couple made their application to the embassy in Cairo last November.
A UK marriage visa would give Omar, the fourth son of the architect of the 9/11 Twin Towers outrage, "leave to remain in the UK" with no time limit on his stay..." (source)
I guess there isn't much mystery as to the outcome of this application considering the 'turn a blind eye' approach the UK seems to have adopted...
