A FORMER paratrooper has been jailed for eight years for taking part in the kidnap and torture of two brothers after a property deal went sour.

Anthony Malone, 40, attacked brothers Mohammed and Haq Narwaz after a business meeting had been set up at offices in Stoke Newington, London, on Friday, April 20, 2007.

He and an accomplice conducted a terrifying nine-hour ordeal in which the brothers were handcuffed, whipped on the testicles, hit with a hammer and threatened with a blowtorch.

Malone, from Billingham, fled to Afghanistan following the offences and was jailed for two years in Kabul’s Pol-I-Charki jail for owing local businessmen money.

Wearing a long beard, trench coat and poppy, he thanked Judge Martin Zeidman after being sent down at Snaresbrook Crown Court.
