British hunter faces death penalty for 'mass murder of 13 Victims' in Africa

A British man was last night facing the death penalty after being charged with mass murder following the discovery of 13 bodies in an African jungle. David Simpson, 24, a manager for a big game company, was arrested six weeks ago in the Central African Republic after he reported the gruesome find to police.

He found himself being thrown in prison accused of the killings, which are widely believed to have been carried out by supporters of notorious warlord Joseph Kony. Mr Simpson, whose company offers wealthy clients the opportunity to shoot lions, leopards and buffalo, is being detained in a cramped and filthy jail cell with 80 other inmates in what he has described as a ‘nightmare’.

 The Yorkshire-born son of a farmer told the Daily Mail he has been charged with a crime that still carries the death penalty in the war-torn impoverished country. Speaking yesterday on a mobile phone smuggled into prison, he said: ‘For six weeks they held me without a shred of evidence. 'And now I have been forced to sign a piece of paper which states that I have been charged with murdering 13 people. ‘It is just ridiculous. Everyone knows I had nothing to do with it. They know it was Kony.

 ‘It’s all about money. They think because I am white, I must be wealthy. 'When they first arrested me, my bail was set at one million euros, which is just ludicrous. ‘I do not know what is going to happen. It’s like a nightmare. I’m sleeping on the floor with no blankets or mattress. I just want this to be over.’ Ugandan rebel chief Kony, the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army, is wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity including the abduction of thousands of children he has forced to be soldiers or s*x slaves.

 His troops have committed hundreds of atrocities in the Central African Republic, where he is understood to be in hiding. He made international headlines after a video of his terrible crimes was viewed more than 90million times and highlighted by celebrities including Angelina Jolie. Mr Simpson moved to Africa two years ago for an exciting new life away from his family’s pheasant farm in Gillamoor, North Yorkshire.
