The Daily Mail
A Catholic nun is alleged to have sent six envelopes containing white powder to parliamentary figures including Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, a court heard today.
The defendant, who is known as Sister Ruth Augustus, is accused of scrawling ‘devil worshipping’ on envelopes filled with white powder that she posted to Nick Clegg and Baroness Scotland, Harrow Crown Court was told.
The letters were intercepted, three at a time on two separate occasions, at a mail screening centre and the powder was found to be non hazardous, the court heard.
Baroness of Scotland and Nick Clegg were both sent envelopes with a white substance inside
The defendant, 71, of Leyton, east London, denies six counts of hoaxes involving noxious substances or things.
Mark Kimsey, prosecuting, said Augustus accepts that she sent envelopes with letters in them but says police put the white powder in them.
Mr Kimsey said three envelopes were intercepted at a mail screening centre in east London on June 17, 2011. More
