Willie Brigitte was trained by Pakistan military

From: The Daily Telegraph December 02, 2009 12:00AM

WHEN Willie Brigitte was sent to Pakistan for terrorist training, he thought his identity would be safe.

A fair assumption, since it has just been revealed it was rogue elements in Pakistan's own army that trained, armed and deployed him to Australia to carry out a terrorist attack.

British and US intelligence agencies are understood to be taking a belated interest in the Brigitte case, with revelations by now retired French investigative judge Jean-Louis Brugiere that secret evidence not revealed in open court during Brigitte's trial showed complicity in terror plots by a significant number within Pakistan's military.

It also showed the extraordinary lengths they went to conceal to Western allies their identities as double agents.

Brigitte was sent to Pakistan for military training in 2001 and spent four months with the al-Qaeda-backed Lashkar-e-Toiba group in the Punjab mountains learning to handle explosives.

He was also given counter-terrorist training and learnt how to keep a low profile as a sleeper agent, before he was given his first mission to run false passports for deployed terrorist assassins in Afghanistan. In 2003 he was deployed to Sydney and linked up with members of an already established terror cell.

Transcripts from in-camera evidence in his 2007 trial reveal Pakistan security forces supplied trainers and arms to Lashkar-e-Toiba extremists as they trained hundreds of foreign operatives in a complex in the mountains.

When CIA officers came to inspect the complex, believing it to be a Pakistan military outpost, troops on the ground were given 24 hours notice to move Brigitte and dozens of other foreign terrorists-in-the-making 4500m up the mountains. Their presence at the camps was concealed.

One army/LET officer Brigitte met was called Sajid and it is he who sent the French national to Sydney to link up with an already established terror cell. It is Sajid who British M15 now suspect has plotted - and is still plotting - a terror attack in Britain.

There is an Interpol warrant for his arrest as well as a number of Pakistan military and intelligence officers identified as terrorists.

Brigitte is believed to have stayed with Faheem Khalid Lodhi, better known as Abu Hamza, a Pakistani-born, Australian-naturalized contact of Mir, living in South-western Sydney. He worked at a halal restaurant in the center of Sydney, and along with fraternising with a select number of associates of Hamza, he kept in constant contact with Mir by phone. Brigitte also had an interest in aboriginal issues, and he joined and trained at a gym run by Tony Mundine (father of the Australian boxer Anthony Mundine). Hamza for his part continued working as an architect, but also made queries about acquiring large quantities of ammonium nitrate, an ingredient to make a bomb.

In order to stay longer in Australia, he sought a marriage of convenience with Melanie Brown, who was introduced through mutual acquaintances in the Islamic community. Brown like Brigitte was a convert to Islam, and had served in the Australian Army as a signaller in East Timor. She took her conversion to Islam quite seriously, and was eager to marry a Muslim man, although Abu Hamza saw her as a possible security risk and somebody who would take up space in his apartment. Ten days after meeting each other Brigitte and Brown were married in an Islamic ceremony on 30 August 2003.

Brigitte aggressively sought information from Brown about the Australian Army, its equipment and its operations, including details of the Pine Gap joint defence facility. Brown, aware of her obligations not to pass on classified information, managed not to pass on anything substantially secret - she took the precaution of destroying her notebooks of her time in East Timor. Brigitte and Hamza were often busy liaising with other associates in the Islamic community, and kept Brown at arms length.
