    Memo seized linking Thatcher to coup plot

    Just a few days ago, investigators working on the failed attempt to overthrow the regime in Equitorial Guinea discovered phone records linking Mark Thatcher to one of the coup plotters. Mark Thatcher denied there was any linkage. Now authorities in South Africa have unearthed yet another piece of the jigsaw, a memo from Simon Mann, (a key plotter) which appears to name Thatcher, it says that Thatchers role must be kept secret; and that "If involvement becomes known, rest of us, and project, likely to be screwed as a side-issue to people screwing him". Interestingly US oil interests are also mentioned in the memo. "We must follow plan to ensure that neither US government nor oil companies feel that their interests are threatened."
