Wife of Yvonne Fletcher murder Libyan suspect accused of clashing with Libyans studying in UK

PC Fletcher was struck in the stomach and died shortly afterwards at Westminster Hospital

Wife of the main suspect in the murder of Yvonne Fletcher, Saleh Mabrouk, had been accused of clashing with Libyan dissidents in Britain, The Telegraph reported Sunday.

Kamila Otman was said to have opposed Libyan students living in the UK who supported the overthrow of the Gaddafi regime in 2011, according to the report.

The Telegraph added that Mrs Otman was accused of targeting her fellow Libyans at Reading University over their support of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s opponents during the uprising against his regime.

The new information about Mrs Otman come after the case against her husband, Saleh Ibrahim Mabrouk, over his role in the shooting of WPc Fletcher outside the Libyan embassy in London, in April 1984, was dropped after it was claimed it would “not be appropriate” to put some of the evidence before a court for national security reasons, The Telegraph added.
