Stalker gets life for campaign of terror

    A man has been jailed for life for a terror campaign against people
    he suspected of trying to section him under the Mental Health Act
    1983.

    Biochemist Richard Jan firebombed the car of social worker Shauna
    Bailey and the home of Ealing councillor Liz Brookes during a
    seven-year campaign, Middlesex Crown Court heard. Bailey now lives
    at a secret location and has not worked since the attack.

    Jan’s other tactics included threatening letters and phone calls,
    assault, vandalism and using private detectives to obtain personal
    information about his victims, the court was told.

    He was found guilty of two counts of arson with intent to endanger
    life and a charge of causing public nuisance (news, page 11, 17
    June).
