New evidence casts doubt in Lockerbie case


Fresh scientific evidence unearthed by a Scottish legal review undermines the case against the man convicted of being responsible for the Lockerbie aircraft bombing, an investigation for Al Jazeera has found.

The Scottish Criminal Case Review Commission (SCCRC) report details evidence that would probably have resulted in the verdict against Abdel Baset al-Meghrahi, a Libyan man convicted of carrying out the bombing of Pan-Am flight 103 in 1988, being overturned.

'Lockerbie: Case Closed', an hour-long documentary to be aired on Al Jazeera on Monday, examines the evidence uncovered by the SCCRC as well as revealing fresh scientific evidence which is unknown to the commission but which comprehensively undermines a crucial part of the case against the man known as the Lockerbie bomber.

Among the evidence examined by the SCCRC was the testimony of Tony Gauci, a shop owner from Malta, and the most important prosecution witness in the case.

1. Pan Am 103 on 12/21/88 was likely retaliation for the Vincennes shoot down of Iran Air 655 on 7/3/88

2. Well done for aying that!

PA103 was destroyed by Iran and the USA acting together, following an agreement in Glion Switzerland.

The deal was exactly that the same number of US citizens or foreigners had to die as the number onf Iranians on IR655, and that appalling target was reached.

People on the ground or US government personnel on the plane did no count.

If you do not do me do the sums.
