East Renfrewshire Council will not back down as pressure from Washington to extradite the Lockerbie bomber, Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi, looks set to grow.
East Renfrewshire will do what it can to make certain that the condition that has been agreed with Megrahi and the Libyan Government is not breached.
One report suggests that if the US Government was allowed to succeed in its plan that it would breach his conditions, therefore the case would have to be referred to the Parole Board of Scotland who would decide how to deal with the matter.
[It is comforting to learn that East Renfrewshire Council appreciates where its duty lies. Would that the same could be said of the Scottish and United Kingdom governments on this matter.]
