Lockerbie lawyer meets Libyan rebels over 'evidence' of Gaddafi involvement

Lawyer for victims of Lockerbie bombing and IRA attacks using Libyan-supplied Semtex meets revolutionary leaders in Benghazi

Chris McGreal in Benghazi

Monday 4 April 2011 17.51 BST

A British lawyer representing victims of the Lockerbie bombing is meeting Libya's revolutionary leaders in pursuit of evidence a senior rebel claims to have that Muammar Gaddafi ordered the attack.

Jason McCue, head of the Libya Victims Initiative, is also seeking "an apology from the Libyan people" for the blowing up of the Pan Am flight in 1988 and the country's supply of explosives used in IRA attacks.

McCue said he had been invited to Benghazi by the chairman of its interim governing council, Mustafa Abdul Jalil, who served as Gaddafi's justice minister. Jalil has said publicly that he has evidence of the Libyan leader's involvement in the Lockerbie bombing but has not elaborated further.


"There are evidential issues, particularly on Lockerbie. Jalil has made indications that he has evidence linking Gaddafi to it. We've fought for years and never had that information. It's about getting that evidence getting apologies which are worth their weight in gold to the victims," he said.
