Britain's first ever secret terror trial, the one the government spent large amounts of tax payers money trying to keep under wraps, has collapsed after the jury failed to reach a verdict.Last week, the judge was forced to discharge the Old Bailey jury of seven women and five men and call a halt to the trial, which lasted a month and was mostly heard in camera, behind closed doors.In all, 40 hours of evidence was heard behind closed doors, which included virtually all of Incedal's defense. Eight hours was heard with the 10 accredited reporters present, and 12 hours in open court. A photograph of an East London synagogue was also discovered on Incedal's iPhone.Summing up the case for the jury before their ill-starred deliberations, the judge, Justice Andrew Nicol, said the prosecution had to prove that Incedal intended to commit an act of terrorism or had persuaded others to do so.However, the court was also told that Incedal believed terrorism in Britain was "immoral and contrary to Islam".One hopes all, or at least more, of the retrial will be heard in open court.
