Transcript of Hillary Clinton's Lockerbie remarks in Tripoli

[A transcript of the press conference held on 18 October by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Libyan TNC Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril has today been issued by the Department of State.  Mrs Cinton's remarks on Lockerbie read as follows:]

And we have made, of course, our strong views known about Megrahi, and I have said, many times, that we believe that he should never have been released. I raised this issue again with the leadership here. We – and we recognize the magnitude of all the issues that Libya is facing, but we also know the importance of the rule of law, and they have assured us they understand how strongly the United States feels about this and all the sensitivities around this case. We will continue to pursue justice on behalf of the victims of the Lockerbie bombing. This is an open case in the United States Department of Justice, and we will continue to discuss it with our Libyan counterparts.

[Mr Jibril did not address the issue in his remarks.]


  1. MISSION LOCKERBIE, 2011, doc. nr.7049.rtf. (google translation, german/english):

    The two sides US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the 'NTC'-- National Transitional Council's chairman Abdul Jalil and Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril, seem yet to reach consensus on the "Lockerbie Affair", in which a Libyan convict was "involved" ?.
    Or was the bombing of PanAm 103, suddenly after all a willful false flag operation ?...
    Short time before the "Lockerbie-Tragedy" Libya had no motive for a revange action against the United States !

  2. What about showing respect for the rule of Scots law? The Yanks were happy enough with it when it railroaded a man with an unbreakable alibi for the Lockerbie bombing.
