1,200 back call for Megrahi inquiry

[This is the headline over a report in The Scotsman. It reads in part:]

More than 1,200 people have backed the call for an independent inquiry into the conviction of the Lockerbie bomber. (...)

One year after the Libyan's release on compassionate grounds, campaigners launched the new attempt to secure an inquiry, an online campaign which attracted 1,245 signatories in ten days.

The appeal is being led by pressure group Justice For Megrahi, which involves Dr Jim Swire, whose daughter Flora was killed in the Pan Am bombing.

He said the case has been "corrosive and deeply damaging" to the Scottish justice system and called on the government to open an inquiry.

Mr Swire added: "Only is such a manner can Scotland demonstrate that it is making a sincere attempt to resolve this highly contentious issue." (...)

The petition, lodged on October 8, can be accessed through the Scottish Parliament's website and closes on Thursday next week.

[The signature total now stands at 1325.]



    The PanAm 103 Attack was "used for a conspiracy under "assignment Amsterdam" (Mission "Amsterdam") against the Libya Leader Moammar Al Gaddafi !

    Mr. Abdelbaset Al Megrahi alias "Ahmed Khalifa Abdusamad", Libya, AirMalta flight KM-180 and the MEBO Timerfragment MST-13 (PT/35) does not have anything to do with the Panam 103 cruelty !
    It is high time that after 22 years the truth comes on the day. Please they sign public petition "Justice for Megrahi" for independent inquiry to get at the truth of the bombing of PanAm 103.

  2. The Scottish Parliament's e-petition system cannot currently be accessed.

    I hope it's a temporary technical problem, and not a fault induced by the 'powers that be' to frustrate signing and submission of the Justice for Megrahi e-petition.
