Libya: Gaddafi aide Moussa Koussa faces more questions

[This is the headline over a report published this morning on the BBC News website. It reads in part:]

The UK is still seeking information from ex-Libyan Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa, who fled to London on Thursday, Defence Secretary Liam Fox has said.

Asked what should happen now to Mr Koussa, Dr Fox told the BBC he would not provide daily updates but "clearly we want to get information from him". (...)

Scottish prosecutors have asked to interview Mr Koussa about the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, which left 270 people dead.

Asked whether Mr Koussa would stand trial if evidence was found linking him to Lockerbie, Dr Fox said: "It's very clear in Britain that our judicial process moves independently from government."

Previously, Prime Minister David Cameron has insisted that Mr Koussa had not been offered immunity from prosecution.

[Slippery customer, Liam Fox. But it is, of course, the case that -- at least with regard to Lockerbie -- any investigation and prosecution of Moussa Koussa would be a matter not for UK Government authorities or institutions, but for the Scottish police and the Scottish Crown Office, both of which are accountable to the Scottish Government and the Scottish Parliament.]


  1. MISSION LOCKERBIE, 2011, doc. nr.1225.rtf. (google translation, german/english):

    It shows itself more and more, all illustrated circumstantial-evidence in the 'Lockerbie case "were only invented or deliberately manipulated "Findings", no Proofs ! The necessary and fateful testimony of shopkeeper Tony Gauci and his brother, against Al Megrahi, were attainable by "bribe money" ! The key to the door of the "Miscarriage of Justice" is passed in the next few days to the Scottish Justiciary, by Libyan ex minister for foreign affairs, Mr Moussa Koussa...
    Justice for Abdelbaset Al Megrahi and for the Libyan People the honor back.
    Es zeigt sich heute mehr und mehr, alle dargestellten Indizien-Beweis im 'Lockerbie-Fall' waren nur vorsätzlich erfundene oder manipulierte "Befunde", keine Beweise ! Die erforderlichen und verhängnisvollen Zeugenaussagen von "Shopkeeper" Tony Gauci und seines Bruders, gegen Al Megrahi, wurden durch "Schmiergeld-Bezahlungen" errreicht ! Der Schlüssel zur Türe des "Miscarriage of Justice" wird in den nächsten Tagen, von ex libyens Minister "for foreign affairs" Mr Moussa Koussa, der Scottish Justiciary übergeben...
    Gerechtigkeit für Mr Abdelbaset Al Megrahi und für das libysche Volk die Ehre zuück.

  2. Fox? A very slippery customer indeed, but he's surrounded by many of those.

    The more one thinks about Koussa, and who he is in the Gaddafi regime, the more unlikely it becomes that he is here without guarantees. Indeed, he may even be here with Gaddafi's approval. Which makes Cameron - and Fox - liars. Which makes them just two more names to add to the list of liars connected with Lockerbie and the truth behind the atrocity.
