Among the well-known names that appear on the list of signatories of the Megrahi petition are: Benedict Birnberg, William Gillies, Ian Hamilton QC, AL Kennedy, Hector MacQueen, Aonghas MacNeacail, Stephen Maxwell, Marcello Mega, Len Murray, Tessa Ransford, James Robertson, Kenneth Roy, John Scott, and Jock Thomson QC. There is also a Libyan signatory whose name appears as Khaled Elmegarhi. I believe this to be Abdelbaset al-Megrahi's eldest son.
At around 10am tomorrow, the e-petition will have been online for one week. In spite of almost complete silence from the mainstream media, it should by then have gathered in the region of one thousand signatures. It remains open for signature until 28 October.
