A woman got stranded in Pakistan for three years after a man decided to rid himself of her by simply placing her, his wife, on a terrorist watch list.
As an agent at an UK Border Agency’s headquarter, he had top security clearance and access to the terrorist watch list.
His act was only detected, looks like, because he could not secure the complicity necessary to keep it protected from scrutiny and his personal vendetta came to light accidentaly after he applied for a promotion and a background check revealed that his wife was on the terrorist watch list.
