[This is the headline (translated into English) over a letter published today, the feast of Epiphany, on the website of the Spanish newspaper El Correo from Marina de Larracoechea, the sister of one of the flight attendants killed in the Lockerbie disaster. An English translation, with help from Google Translate, reads as follows:]
Dear Kings: In 2010 I was even better than the previous year, impossible though that may seem. I worked hard with dedication and sacrifice, especially for truth and justice in the case of the destruction of Pan Am flight 103 where my sister Nieves was murdered, along with 269 other equally precious and irreplaceable lives. This carnage, politically induced, announced and expected, occurred on December 21, 1988 over Lockerbie, Scotland. Others, mainly government officials, diplomats and big businessmen had precise prior knowledge that had helped them to change their flight and save their lives. Silence reigns over this and other important aspects.
On 21 December we passed the psychological barrier of 22 years, and just as happens with financial indexes, so the forces at work have obscenely closed our case, in a market of political and financial agendas, by a silence of convenience.
I ask the following gifts: Truth and Justice for Pan Am 103 and so an end this ordeal; peace for everyone in the world and for us in particular; a lot of help, solidarity and respect for the victims; health to continue fighting with even more determination; a little good fortune to help us bear with dignity the enormous burden of these 22 years; a load of charcoal for some of the very evil characters who lead this world into war, death, hatred, poverty and suffering, preserve their impunity and obstruct truth and justice in the Pam Am 103 case and deny our rights. I do not give names now because you are Magi and you know everything. This letter is similar to last year's but that is because it has brought almost nothing that I asked for.
