Megrahi motion likely to be debated in Scottish Parliament
The motion tabled earlier this week in the Scottish Parliament by Christine Grahame MSP to the effect that Parliament, noting the Justice for Megrahi petition and the SCCRC findings "would welcome the establishment of an independent inquiry in Scotland to consider all the circumstances that led to the conviction" has now been signed by MSPs from the SNP, the Conservative Party and the Liberal Democrats. The fact that the motion is supported by MSPs of more than one political party makes it likely that it will be selected for debate. It is noteworthy that no Labour Party MSP has yet signed the motion.
