Grapevine Stories

Interview with Simon Mann

Please watch this extraordinary chat I had with Simon Mann. He existed in two of the world's most brutal prisons. 

Simon tells us his fascinating story of the events that unfolded, being betrayed by Mark Thatcher, leading up to his arrest and subsequent imprisonment in two of the world's worst prisons in Zimbabwe, followed by Black Beach prison in Equadorial Guinea from 2004 to 2009.

This is a truly fascinating and humbling interview, hearing at first hand what Simon went through.
