An important piece of evidence in the terrorism case from Odense is missing. Police informant Lars was taping with a tape recorder on his belt when one of the suspects, nicknamed Iraq-Ahmad, said that the group was "ready" to produce a bomb.
Or rather: Lars says that he taped it, but the tape can't be found in any of the many evidence folders.
"I gave the tape to the PET [Danish Security Intelligence Service]. I know that a tape is missing, but I don't know if this is the tape with the recording," said Lars Tuesday in court.
The statements by Iraq-Ahmad were said, according to Lars, in the mosque at Ørbækvej. Out in the parking lot Iraq-Ahmad told Lars, however, that the the plan was scraped. That last statement was documented, since it was picked up by the listening equipment in the agent's car.
