Most feared criminals in the world: From the head of Isis to the brain behind Boko Haram, we reveal the new names on the globe’s governmental watch lists.People may be (half) joking about the nuclear threat of a Donald Trump presidency but for now, from kidnappings to suicide bombs, our planet is becoming a more volatile place to live by the day. And these crimes are frequently carried out under the express orders of a select group of deadly and unstable men.
Here, we reveal the elusive people currently keeping heads of state awake at night.
THE HOMEMADE ARMS TRADER
Who: Cody Wilson – director of Defense Distributed.
What he wants: Total freedom of the internet and the creation of ungovernable weaponry and money markets.
What he does: Uploads blueprints for 3D-printable weapons. Software to make a gun called the Liberator was put on his website last year and had been downloaded 100,000 times by the time the US State Department intervened to have the plans removed.
How he can be stopped: Wilson could face an investigation for possible illegal export of munitions which, if found guilty, would see him face up to seven years in prison. If it could be proven that his actions seriously threatened “US national and regional security interests” the penalty could be longer.
