"Following the meeting with the Lord Advocate in Tripoli in April, the interim Libyan Prime Minister met the Lord Advocate and the Chief Constable of Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary today in London to discuss and reaffirm the commitment he gave to the Lord Advocate and the Director of FBI in April that the new Libyan Government would co-operate with Scottish and US law enforcement in the investigation of others with Megrahi in the Lockerbie bombing.
“The Prime Minister asked for clarification on a number of issues relating to the conduct of the proposed investigation in Libya and the Lord Advocate has undertaken to provide this. The Prime Minister made it clear that he recognised the seriousness of this crime and following the clarification he would take this forward as a priority.
“As the investigation remains live, and in order to preserve the integrity of that investigation, it would not be appropriate to offer further comment.”
