Justice for Megrahi petition on agenda of Scottish Parliament Justice Committee

On 28 June 2011, the Scottish Parliament's Public Petitions Committee referred to the Parliament's Justice Committee the Justice for Megrahi petition (PE 1370) calling on the Scottish Government to institute an independent inquiry into Abdelbaset Megrahi's conviction.  The petition will be one of the items on the Justice Committee's agenda at its meeting on 8 November 2011 at 10am.  It is anticipated that the committee discussion will be limited to deciding what action to take on the petition (eg whether to call for evidence and, if so, from whom and in what form -- oral or written).


  1. The Justice Committee should invite Libya's former Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa to appear before them on 8 November 2011, and to tell them publicly what he told Scottish prosecutors and investigators in private six months ago about the Lockerbie bombing.

    Some of the Scottish Officials are the true criminals in the "Lockerbie Affair"-- are responsible for manipulating evidence and are still protected by the Scottish Justice !

    1) manipulated MST-13 Timer circuit board (PT/35) see MEBO document no. 498, Eng. Lumpert's Affidavit about the crucial MST-13 circuit board, from 18th July,

    2) The "white wash" of a crucial date (the meeting on 22nd of June 1989 from witness nr.567, document production nr.1562 image, 4th at Kamp van Zeist.
    Alone these two facts, prove that Libya nothing can have to do with the bombing of PanAm 103.

    An open letter to the Scottish Parliament
    Rt Hon Alex Salmond MSP

    Zurich 7th of January, 2011

    Dear First Minister Hon Alex Salmond

    Re: Exonerating evidence in the "Lockerbie case"

    After 22 years of political problems with the "Lockerbie affair" and as an answer to "US Justice Undone", we would like to help the Scottish Parliament with a new forensic procedure of taking evidence to 100% rule out Libya and Mr. Abdelbaset Al Megrahi from involvement in the PanAm 103 attack.

    As a manufacturer and supplier of (green) MST-13 timers, made from 9 layers of fibre glass and delivered to the military procurement in Libya between 1985-86 (two years before PanAm 103 crash) we could prove under the supervision of UK, EU and US experts in Edinburgh within 15 minutes that the original partial fragment DP/31(a) comes from a (brown) prototype MST-13 timer "circuit board", which was not delivered to Libya!

    The smaller partial fragment DP/31(a) was separated from the (brown) original MST-13 fragment (PT/35) on 27th of April 1990 by Siemens in Munich (D), allegedly for forensic reasons and registered under label no. 419.
    This partial fragment was manufactured on the basis of 8 layers of fibreglass and therefore comes from a (brown) prototype MST-13 timer, which was not delivered to Libya!
    The *larger MST-13 partial fragment (colour brown) correspondingly was also made of 8 layers of fibreglass.
    (Ref: Siemens AG laboratory photographs ZPL-TW11-14).

    *This (brown) original partial fragment was exchanged for a duplicate (colour green) with 9 layers of fibreglass using a criminal machination as (PT/35(b), label no. 353! This was to deliberately make the link to Libya!
    On 13th-17th September 1999, I recognised the same facts after an assessment by procurator Mirian Watson in Dumfries. see **(2 Police reports, Statement Of Witness).

    Unfortunately as a witness in court in Kamp van Zeist (2000) the exonerating statements were refused!
    Reason: Libya could only have been involved in the PanAm 103 attack with a 9 layer fibreglass MST-13 timer Circuit Board (colour green)...
    Hereby I volunteer myself, Edwin Bollier, MEBO Ltd. together with my ex Ing. Ulrich Lumpert in this important matter at short notice.

    NB: **Statements of Witness, Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary 16th-17th September 1999 can be found on the orientation list, under section "Link" (in red text) on URL:

    Yours Sincerely
    Edwin Bollier, MEBO Ltd., Switzerland

  4. In view of the previous comment, the Justice Committee should invite Edwin Bollier of MEBO Ltd and MEBO's former employee Ulrich Lumpert to appear before them on 8 November 2011. First Minister Alex Salmond should also be required to attend the hearing of petition PE1370, and to bring along the letter - headed Exonerating evidence in the "Lockerbie case" and dated 7 January 2011 - that Mr Bollier addressed to Mr Salmond.

  5. ---------- Forwarded message ----------
    Date: 2011/2/10
    Subject: Lockerbie

    Dear Mr Bollier,
    Thank you for your open letter of 7 January to the First Minister regarding the Lockerbie atrocity. I have been asked to reply.

    We have noted the contents of your letter. The conviction of Mr Al-Megrahi is a judicial matter and it would not be appropriate for the Scottish Government to either influence the process or to make comment.
    The Scottish Government has always been as open and transparent as possible which is why, following the announcement last December that the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission has been unable to secure the necessary consents to release its statement of reasons in the Megrahi case due to the constraints of the current legislation, we now intend to bring forward legislation to overcome the problems presented by the current consent provisions.

    This will allow the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission to publish a statement of reasons in cases where an appeal is abandoned, subject of course to legal restrictions applying to the Commission such as data protection, the convention rights of individuals and international obligations attaching to information provided by foreign authorities.
    On the broader questions of an inquiry, the Scottish Government do not doubt the safety of the conviction of Al-Megrahi. Nevertheless, there remain concerns to some on the wider issues of the Lockerbie atrocity. The questions to be asked and answered in any such inquiry would be beyond the jurisdiction of Scots Law and the remit of the Scottish Government, and such an inquiry would therefore need to be initiated by those with the required power and authority to deal with an issue, international in its nature. The Scottish Government would not have the powers for example to compel witnesses to appear or the authority to compel the release of evidence. However, as was indicated last year, the Scottish Government would be entirely happy to co-operate fully with any such properly constituted inquiry

    Many thanks for raising this matter.

  6. @ Patrick
    Involving MEBO in anything would be stating something like "Our case is not stronger than that we have to accept working with statements from totally disrespected people, that have a more than relaxed attitude towards the truth."
    I think JFM is not for a split second considering doing anything with MEBO.

  7. I don't know if you're a signatory, SM, but Edwin Bollier of MEBO is signatory number 480 on petition PE 1370.

    In my book, that simple action makes Mr Bollier a thoroughly respectable person who has first-hand evidence that should be listened to by the Justice Committee when it considers the JFM petition on 8 November 2011.

  8. "In my book, that simple action [signing the petition] makes Mr Bollier a thoroughly respectable person..."

    Too bad it is closed! I know a couple of people who have been caught in black lies too many times who'd surely have liked to become 'thoroughly respectable'.

    "...who has first-hand evidence..."
    Sure, but MEBO's memory is bad, and they are outclassing even Gauci by delivering new exiting versions of it.

    Dear Patrick, I really don't understand you here. May be my limitation, of course. Enough from me about this. Cheers...

  9. FWIW, I am signatory #1519.

  10. I hope the floods in Thailand are not affecting you, SM.
