Holyrood Justice Committee to resume consideration of Megrahi petition

A reminder that consideration of Justice for Megrahi's petition calling on the Scottish Government to set up an independent inquiry into the Lockerbie investigation and prosecution and the conviction of Abdelbaset Megrahi forms item 3 on the agenda of tomorrow's meeting of the Scottish Parliament's Justice Committee.  The meeting starts at 10.15 in Holyrood Committee Room 1.  The agenda for the meeting, plus the committee clerk's briefing note on the petition and outlining the Justice Committee's options, along with the supporting submissions and documents, can be read here.


  1. Dear All,

    Largely most happy with the manner in which the JC admin's legal reps have approached our submissions. It is, however, somewhat bizarre that a Scot Nat dominated government has seen fit to redact a quote from one of their greatest figureheads. I refer, to Ian Hamilton QC. Lord! Hope that wasn't libelous! Must consult my lawyers.

    Pip, pip,

  2. Shame on them!

    Good luck for tomorrow.

  3. I think he's a bit down the list of SNP "figureheads", you know. And the quote was pretty robust. Poor babies.

  4. I disagree Rolfe. To many people Ian Hamilton is still a significant figurehead.

  5. Not to the people who are in the Scottish government though, which is what Robert was talking about.
