A senior British police officer who dressed up as Osama bin Laden to attend a village fair has been dismissed from his job helping to build Afghanistan’s security forces.

一名英國高階警官因為打扮成賓拉丹去參加村子的聚會活動,讓自己丟了協助建立阿富汗維安警力的工作。

Chief Superintendent Colin Terry of the Devon and Cornwall Police dressed up as the architect of the Sept. 11 attacks, complete with turban, Arab robes and a face mask, to attend the local charity fete last week.

得文與康瓦爾區域警局的分局長泰瑞,上週以纏頭巾、阿拉伯長袍與一張面具,裝扮成911攻擊案的首腦,參加地方慈善遊樂會。

He was spotted by a photographer and reported to the Independent Police Complaints Commission by his own force. Now he has also been dismissed by the Foreign Office, which oversaw his policing contract in Afghanistan.

他被一名攝影師發現,並被自家單位通報到獨立警察投訴專署。現在他也被監管他在阿富汗警務合約的外交部革職。

"Chief Superintendent Colin Terry will not be returning to the EUPOL mission," a spokesman for the Foreign Office said. EUPOL is a European Union-backed police training scheme.

外交部一名發言人說︰「分局長泰瑞不會返回EUPOL的任務。」EUPOL是歐盟支持的警察訓練計畫。

Witnesses at the fete and colleagues on the Devon and Cornwall police force were shocked when Terry was revealed to be the man behind the Osama bin Laden fancy dress.

當泰瑞被揭露就是變妝成賓拉丹的那名男子時,在這個遊樂會的目擊者以及得文與康瓦爾區域警局的同僚都感到震驚。

Terry was in turn surprised by everyone’s outrage. "I am quite horrifed that someone would see this negatively," he was quoted as saying in the Guardian newspaper at the time. "This is a local event that has been running for many, many years, raising money for charity."

泰瑞對每個人的憤慨反倒訝異。「某些人竟負面看待這個舉動,讓我相當惶恐,」衛報當時引述他的談話報導。「這是行之多年、為慈善募款的地方活動。」
