MEGRAHI: A SPECTACULAR MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE?
Saturday 11 August, 11:30am - 12:30pm
Edinburgh Book Festival, RBS Main Theatre, Charlotte Square, Edinburgh
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 bombing of 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.
