Five men arrested on suspicion of plotting to kidnap Victoria Beckham

Five men arrested on suspicion of plotting to kidnap Victoria Beckham and her two children have been charged.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "Metropolitan Police Service officers from the Kidnap and Specialist Investigations Unit have fully investigated the allegations of a conspiracy to kidnap Victoria Beckham.
"Following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, it has been decided the defendants will be additionally charged with conspiracy to kidnap Victoria Beckham.
The charges follow an alleged plan to ambush the former Spice Girl and her young sons Romeo and Brooklyn as they left the family's Hertfordshire mansion.
It is alleged the gang was planning to demand a £5m ransom from the England soccer captain.
Nine people were arrested in a series of armed police swoops in a London hotel car park and several homes in the suburbs in November last year.
Dramatic pictures of the arrests were captured by the News of the World last year.
The paper alleged that three of the gang had visited the Beckhams' home in Sawbridgeworth to look at the driveway.
They are alleged to have planned to stop Victoria in her car, kidnap her and the children, and take them to a house in South London.
Those charged are: Joseph Rivas, Adrian Pasareanu, Sorin Rusu, Alin Turcu and Azem Krifhsa.
They are already facing separate charges of theft relating to alleged stolen paintings.
They will appear at Middlesex Guildhall Crown Court on the kidnap charges on February 24.

These are news from February 14Th 2003

Five men are to appear in court charged with plotting to kidnap Victoria Beckham.

They are accused of planning to kidnap the singer as she left her Hertfordshire home and then demand a multi-million pound ransom from her husband, England football captain David Beckham.


The celebrity couple, who have two sons, were personally informed by a senior detective of the decision to charge the men.

The Crown Prosecution Service said the men would face a joint charge of "on or before November 2, 2002 conspiring together with other persons unknown to kidnap Victoria Beckham".

The men, who were arrested in November, cannot be named for legal reasons.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "Officers from the Kidnap and Special Investigations Unit have fully investigated the allegation of a conspiracy to kidnap Victoria Beckham.

"Following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, it has been decided that they will be charged with the offence of conspiracy to kidnap Victoria Beckham."

The men are due to appear at Middlesex Guildhall Crown Court on February 24.

LONDON (Reuters) - Police say they have charged five men with conspiring to kidnap "Posh Spice" Victoria Beckham, pop star wife of England soccer captain David Beckham.


The five had been arrested in November by Scotland Yard's special kidnap unit after a tip-off from a tabloid newspaper.


"Following consultations with the Crown Prosecution Service, it has been decided that the defendants be charged with the offence of conspiracy to kidnap Victoria Beckham," said a Scotland Yard spokesman on Friday.


Beckham's inspired performances on the pitch have made him the darling of soccer fans, while "Posh" shot to fame with the Spice Girls in the 1990s.


But fame has come at a price, and the Beckhams have been surrounded by tight security ever since an earlier kidnap scare in 2000.


The couple have spent 150,000 pounds on a customised armour-plated Mercedes car, capable of withstanding gunfire, landmine blasts and gas attacks.


After the latest arrests, they further beefed up security at their mansion north of London dubbed "Beckingham Palace".


The five men charged with conspiring to kidnap Victoria are due to appear at Middlesex Guildhall Crown Court on February 24.
