    Were they granted Bail due to Political intervention? This aspect has not been clarified. Please do NOT try to be politically correct. A traitor, thief, terrorist, would be terrorist, criminal of any sort must never be protected. The Police MUST have the guts NOT to obey antinational directions from ANYONE. MM
