UK wanted al-Megrahi release

Recommended Posts

Not quite ' confirmed', the leaks just state that some diplomats were "relieved", which is far from an official UK Government position on the matter.

However, good to see that it indicates that the Scottish Government weren't complicit in anything shady concerning the release.

Someone gave me a long report to read on al-Megrahi a while ago which I haven't got round to reading yet, but it apparently shows that his guilt in the bombings was "questionable" at best, so he probably should never have been locked up in the first place. I'm going to make a point at reading that report very soon.

Yeah - the Private Eye one. I have a print out which I'm going to read tomorrow.

You can download for 5 from there. I'm sure there are less legal ways of getting it for free though...

All things considered.. it would be better if he were not to die in a British jail

...all while Iain Gray in the Scottish Parliament attempted to make political gain out of his opposition to the release. Was Iain Gray ignorant of what the Labour party in London was doing or was he simply being two-faced?
