MI6 is after me, court hears
Prosecution witness paranoid after taking cocaine
A witness in an attempted murder trial has told the court he had been so paranoid from cocaine use he thought MI6 were after him.
Nicolas Wells had been a friend of Robert Graham, accused of the attempted murder of a bean counter for the Law Society of Scotland in Edinburgh.
The court heard that Wells was so stoned on cocaine and a player of computer game 'Call of Duty' he didn’t know the difference between reality and fantasy.
Defence Counsel Mhairi Richards asked him: “You were convinced there were guys with sniper rifles on the roofs with their targets on you, and you thought MI6 were after you?”
Wells said this was true and that he was so “coked up” he can’t even be sure of his own memory.
Wells said in a police statement in 2009: “He told me around this time he’d (Graham) done some judge in, in Edinburgh, having jumped out some bushes at him. I can recall him telling me the guy in the BMW had paid him £10k to do the job, and told him to give the guy a good working over.”
Graham, 46, denies attempting to murder Leslie Cummings in 2006.
The trial continued at the High Court in Edinburgh on Friday.
