[This is the headline over a report in the Sunday Mail on 20 June. It reads in part:]
A last ditch bid to have the Lockerbie bomber's medical condition made public has been rejected.
Labour MSP George Foulkes appealed to the information commissioner after being told Abdelbaset al-Megrahi 's welfare would remain a secret from the public.
Now the decision to withhold the information has been upheld by Kevin Dunion.
Foulkes said: "I am very disappointed that the freedom of information laws within Scotland don't allow the public access to this information.
"It is clear that Megrahi, through his lawyer, has vetoed it.
"This is matter of not just national interest but also international interest.
"There are relatives of Americans who died who are concerned about it." (...)
As part of the conditions of his release, Megrahi has had to provide East Renfrewshire Council with a regular report on his medical condition.
The council monitor Megrahi because his family lived in Newton Mearns while he was in jail.
A council spokesman said yesterday: "We have had all the contact we have needed to have with him."
