Four men-Salahuddin Amin, Zeeshan Siddiqui, Rangzieb Ahmed, and an individual who wishes to remain anonymous-have described meeting British officials while detained in Pakistan.
Pakistani intelligence sources described Salahuddin Amin, for example, as a "high pressure" case, saying that the British (and American) agents involved were "perfectly aware that we were using all means possible to extract information from him and were grateful that we were doing so."
"Resplendent in his uniform and medals, [Forest] Whitaker's Amin is a gloriously mad and grandiloquent figure, conceived by screenwriters Peter Morgan and Jeremy Brock as a Day-Glo Shakespearean monster, with audacious hints of Othello and even Titus Andronicus, a monster for whom they have written boldly extended dialogue scenes of unabashed intelligence and theatricality," writes the Guardian's Peter Bradshaw.
Al – Amin is an imposing physical figure, fair, tall, handsome and of immense strength; according to
Amin is also subject to five months of home confinement and three years of supervised release, as well as 80 hours of community service.
Aside from the mass murder and cannibalism and stuff, Idi Amin is best known for expelling Uganda's 80,000-member Indian community during the mid-1970s.
"It beats my understanding if one calls Amin a hero," he said.
Ramon Isidro Madriz Moreno, known as Amin, a key officer in Venezuela's intelligence service known as SEBIN, was also added to the list.
There was a catchphrase Amin used with his closest confidants, which meant that the person should first be tortured — not for information, but as punishment or for exercise — and then murdered.
But the Sadr Azem, then known as the Amin-es-Sultan, rightly interpreting the true feelings of the royal father and the people, promptly filled the vacancy himself, and has now led the nation to act as executors of the will of the departed Shah in securing the peaceful succession of the heir whom he appointed.
