A businessman who sold fake bomb detectors to Iraq and was jailed for ten years today, has been described as a "callous conman".
Speaking outside court, detective superintendent Nigel Rock of Avon and Somerset Police said: "The judge said [James] McCormick was a callous conman. And he practiced a callous con trick. He's developed, practiced, refined that con trick over 10 years.
"In fact, he's still maintaining that con trick that the device works. So, over the period of time he has developed and produced a convincing tale".
