The grieving mum of a Lockerbie victim has launched a fresh attack on Kenny MacAskill - ahead of the freed bomber's birthday today.
Cancer-stricken Abdelbaset Ali al Megrahi was released by the Justice Secretary last August after reports claimed he had just three months to live.
But Susan Cohen - who lost daughter Theo in the atrocity - claims the fact the killer is alive to celebrate turning 58 in Libya today proves he should have been kept in jail.
She said: "It's sickening. This shows it was a shocking decision to free him.
"This man will have a birthday party, but my daughter will never have another one.
"She only had 20 birthdays and he should have remained in jail."
The 72-year-old, of Cape May Court House in New Jersey, added: "It was obvious that he was not going to die. It was a big fraud. It had nothing to do with compassion.
"Where's the compassion for my daughter and the other people who died?
"Megrahi is a terrorist who murdered 270 people. There is no way he should have been let out."
