Does this mean no more stupid Free Ted Maher threads on FR?

I sure hope so. Annoying.

I cannot believe the people on this forum that rant about a thread being a waste of time, yet take the time to post on it. Absolute morons.

Irony can be pretty ironic sometimes.

"Safra, the 67-year-old founder and principal stock owner of the Republic National Bank of New York"

Crooked bank.

There is enough crime in this country to give a damn about some former soldier that killed some rich guy in another third world country

Yes before someone corrects me, I do realize that Monaco is NOT a third world country. I was thinking that earlier I had read Morroco.

Maher can catch up with a good Stephen King book now with all the time on his hands.

I was about to recommend you watch "To Catch a Thief", but I see you already caught your error. But I recommend the film, anyway.

Monaco is actually a very sophisticated country. It certainly isn't a Banana Republic.

Who the hell is Maher? Does he have a first or last name and why should I care

His name is Ted Maher and he is a military or ex-military guy (vet) that has been accused in Monaco for starting a fire and killing someone of importantance.

From what I recall of the story he was being held on bogus charges and that officals in Monaco have refused to release him or let anyone see him. I think they have held him there for like 3 or 4 years.

There is a thread around here somewhere on FR and he is often prayed for on the Canteen Thread

Ah, yes. Brian and Ruth Christine - so vehemently defended.

Kinda sucked when it turned out that the kids went to her parents in England, destroying the "rich off foster care" argument.

Yeah, but they convicted this guy, and he is a veteran.

Bush should have freed him, like the other thread says.

The guy ADMITTED to starting the fire, so he could look like a hero in the eyes of his boss, after he rescued him.

Or, is the Zionist Jew media making this up?

While it is difficult to see the entire truth on the Maher episode....I don't he is entirely innocent. We may never know the entire story.

He admitted setting the fire that killed someone. He set the fire, now he should do the time.


American nurse Ted Maher, right, talks with his American lawyer Michael Griffith at Monaco's courthouse Thursday Nov. 28, 2002, during his trial for the arson death of his billionaire employer Edmond Safra on Dec. 3, 1999. Authorities are seeking life in prison for Maher, who claims he never expected the fire he started in a small wastebasket in Safra's luxury Monaco penthouse to rage out of control and kill Safra and another nurse.

Ted Maher, not publicly recanting his confession in front of the press. Ted Maher, not shouting to the cameraman, "I was set up! The confession is a fake!" Ted Maher, the only member of the Maher family to not renounce the confession.

Don't ya know? They brainwashed him keeping him up all night and injecting him with drugs. /sarcasm.

You're welcome. Ted Maher has gotten alot of play on Free Republic as a discussion topic, but little hardcore, big-time American media interest. The case is complex, including a coerced confession and many, many other ins and outs that I think many I've noticed who've posted here today on this thread are unfamiliar. I think more of his story came right back to you when you realized which Maher this was. But, truthfully, so many folks don't have any idea. Monegasque courts are unique and do not have high standing, as one poster suggested. There should be a statement by one of Edmund Safra's brothers tonight in which he addresses the suppressed evidence and coverups at trial, engineered by the Monegasque prosecutor and the court itself. Foreign press, including several well known personages in the American media, felt this trial was a farce from beginning to end. No one could believe Ted was convicted from what I'm hearing out of court press pool. They were taken aback by the overtness of the coverups at trial and were actually caught laughing at the ridiculousness of exclusions and testimony given in the course of the trial. There's much more, but suffice to say no one should be gloating in an American convicted in Monaco, or saying that he got what he deserved when they don't know the facts of the case. I've seen the autopsy reports on Safra and the female nurse killed in the same incident--they did not die by asphyxiation due to smoke inhalation. Both were dead before they breathed in any of that.

Is he gonna be in jail for another 7 years?
He already been there for 3 years, so it should be deducted from his penalty.

Monaco a Police State? Have you ever been there? It's one of the most gorgeous, safe, and clean places on the planet. Well, unless you are a murderer or the victim of an arsonist nurse. Then it would pretty much suck.

Not only should we boycott Monaco, but also the bordering countries.

(Like I'm sure the Boycott Everything crown includes those who patronize Monaco)
