The grieving sister of one of the Lockerbie bomber's victims last night vowed to confront the freed killer - and FORGIVE him.
But lawyer Lisa Gibson is locked in a desperate race against time as Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi lies close to dying of prostate cancer.
She wants Megrahi to know how much she misses her brother Kenneth, one of the 270 who died when Flight 103 was blown up, BUT also that she won't judge him.
Single Lisa, 39, below, of Colorado Springs, told us: "After Megrahi was convicted, I wrote and told him only God knows if he is responsible.
"Going to see him is the next stage in the process, to let him know how hard it's been without Kenneth and offer my forgiveness."
Lisa added: "If Megrahi survives the next few weeks, then the plan is to visit him at home.
"It will be very emotional, but I want to look him in the eye and make sure he knows our pain.
"Even he has said that if he is responsible, God will judge him, and I believe that." (...)
The devout Christian explained: "One of the things I feel personally called to do is to actually forgive Megrahi for the attack. That is motivated by my faith."
She sparked controversy last September when she met Libyan leader Colonel Gaddafi - just weeks after Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill ordered Megrahi to be freed from Greenock Prison due to his medical condition. (...)
And despite criticism of the Justice Secretary's decision, Lisa insists he was right to free the bomber.
She added: "Megrahi was shown a tremendous amout of compassion being allowed to go home to die with dignity.
"That's more than we could ever expect from Libya if the tables were turned."
