"... you know for certain that it wasn’t Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi ..."

Of course, having made a discovery at the fringe, you find yourself having to follow their progress in subsequent years. Ever since David Benson first moved and astonished us with his uncannily accurate impression of Kenneth Williams but also personalised it by telling us how important Williams had been to him, I have seen him again and again at Edinburgh, but never to quite the same effect. Until yesterday, when he brought a quietly devastating authority and sense of outrage to Lockerbie: Unfinished Business, a documentary recreation of one tireless man’s campaign to find out who was responsible for the terrorist outrage that fateful December night that claimed the life of his young daughter. And by the end of this show, you know for certain that it wasn’t Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi, convicted of the crime but released last year to return to Libya to die of the cancer that he is suffering from. Benson’s performance is the best I expect to see in Edinburgh this year, and perhaps all year.

    In "special" English language; if it is incomprehensible think it is coded...

    On 17. July 2009 informed Rt Hon Lord Trefgarne PC in a letter at Secretary of Justice Kenny MacAskill in the connection of Mr. Abdelbaset Al Megrahi's PTA the following text: "if the PTA is your preferred course then Mr. Megrahi will have to withdraw his appeal and notify the Court accordingly."

    Since the 9th July 2009 were "initiate" Persons in the context with its intended release informed about it, that Mr Al-Megrahi will drop his legal appeal before going home. It contradicts itself, however if secret fact is which on the stage,"National Security" to be should protected !
    The same "initiaten" Persons knew at this time from intelligence files, that Mr. Al-Megrahi nothing could have to do with the PanAm 103 Tragedy!
    From 9. July 2010 Kenny MacAskill was convinced of it and thus he was physically in a safe position, to carry the responsibility for the release of Mr. Al Megrahi, what it showed with its affected behaviour. The "show-accessories" with the doubtful physician certification served only as lightning conductor for attacks from media…

    Mr. Abdelbaset Al-Megrahi is 100% innocent, he and Libya have 100% nothing to do with the Lockerbie-Tragedy.
