Simon Mann buys a pardon for $14 million

Notorious arms runner and mercenary kingpin Simon Mann has been granted a "pardon" by the government of Equitorial Guinea for his role in the mercenary coup plot there (after paying $14 million to Obiang the dictator and implicating all the countries and names Obiang wanted.)

A corrupt ending to one of the stranger foreign policy events of the naughts. (BBC, too.)
