Petition push for independent inquiry to get at the truth of the bombing of Pan Am flight 103

[This is the heading over a letter by Ruth Marr in today's edition of The Herald. It reads as follows:]

Hillary Clinton’s meddling in UK defence spending made it all the more refreshing to hear Kenny MacAskill declare that he is accountable only to the Holyrood Parliament (Salmond hits back at Senate on Megrahi “misinformation”, The Herald, October 16). Mr MacAskill deserves respect for standing firm throughout the Megrahi affair, upholding the principles of Scots law, and refusing to be bullied by the “might is right” pressure from the United States.

The parliament is a great example which many around the world would benefit from emulating. One of its strengths is its public petitions process, available to individuals and groups who wish to petition parliament. One has been opened by the group Justice For Megrahi, which includes Professor Robert Black, Desmond Tutu, Dr Jim Swire and other British Lockerbie relatives, lawyers, diplomats and aviation security experts. It calls on the parliament to urge the Scottish Government to open an independent inquiry into the conviction of Mr Megrahi for the bombing of Pan Am flight 103.

It is available for signing until October 28 by anyone – resident in Scotland or not. It can also be signed by text, and I would urge all concerned about what many consider a miscarriage of justice to access the petition via the Scottish Parliament’s website.

The victims’ families, including the Megrahis, need to know the facts about this most terrible tragedy, and they deserve the support of all who care about justice.

  1. MISSION LOCKERBIE, sorry only in "Babylon English":

    Also MEBO will not keep quiet until it is official legally accepted that:

    1.) The MST-13 Timerfragment (PT/35) was a manipulation; (FRAUD). See Affidavit of eng. U.Lumpert, Zurich 18th July, 2007.

    2.) The Transfer of the so called "Bomb Bag" from Air Malta KM 180 on PanAM-103/B in Frankfurt did not take place at all. It is documented with clear evidence. (FAA doc. Prod.10769 and Alert "Duty x-ray Report" from 21st of Dec.1988, 16.25hour, Prod.10769)

    3.) The alleged clothes bought in the store of Toni Gauci could only have taken place on the *23rd November 1988 and not as stated on the 7th December. There are clear facts and figures to confirm this.*Mr. Al Megrahi was not in Malta at the 23rd of November 1988, as can be proved.

    4.) That the visit of Mr. Abdelbaset Al-Megrahi, alias "Ahmed Khalifa Abdusamad" between 20 and 21st December 1988 in Malta had nothing to do with the Pan Am 103 bombing.

    5.) That the PanAm 103 tragedy as "MISSION AMSTERDAM", was used as a conspiracy against the Libyan Leader Gaddafi.

    6.) That through my "Mission Lockerbie" it will be confirmed that Libya and Mr. Abdelbaset Al-Megrahi had nothing to do with the Lockerbie tragedy.
