Twenty-four years on: why Lockerbie does not simply go away

Twenty-four years ago today Pan Am 103 exploded in the sky above Lockerbie. In May this year, Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the Libyan convicted of murdering those killed aboard the aircraft and on the ground, died. Why, therefore, does the Lockerbie case not simply fade into the mists of history? Here are some of the reasons:

1.  From me: Lockerbie: A satisfactory process but a flawed result and The fairy story of the Crown's independence

2.  From Dr Morag Kerr: Lockerbie: Fact and Fiction

3.  From Gareth Peirce:  The framing of al-Megrahi

4.  From David Wolchover:  Exploding Lockerbie -- Part 1 and Part 2, and A postscript on Lockerbie

5.  From James Robertson:  The Lockerbie affair and Scottish society
