Megrahi: a spectacular miscarriage of justice?

[This is the title of a keynote session on the opening day of the Edinburgh International Book Festival.  The entry in the festival programme reads as follows:]

Saturday 11 August
11:30am - 12:30pm
RBS Main Theatre
£10.00  £8.00

The explosive publication of John Ashton's book, Megrahi: You are my Jury has raised new doubts about Abdelbaset al-Megrahi's conviction for the Pan Am bombing above Lockerbie in 1988. In this keynote discussion Ashton is joined by Jim Swire, whose daughter Flora was killed in the tragedy, and by Hans Köchler, the UN's official observer at the Lockerbie trial. Chaired by Ruth Wishart.
