Mandela believed Megrahi had suffered a deep wrong

[An item posted this morning on the Lockerbie Truth website of Dr Jim Swire and Peter Biddulph reads as follows:]

At long last the mainstream media are discovering the significance of the visit by Mandela in June 2002 to comfort Al-Megrahi in his Glasgow prison cell.

Mandela was a major influence in the setting up of the Lockerbie trial, the agreement by Libya to transfer the two suspects to the Lockerbie trial court in Kamp Zeist, and - unknown to many at the time - in pressing for a second appeal so that Al-Megrahi's innocence could be demonstrated in a court of law.  

As an expert lawyer Mandela was aware of the prosecution case and the evidence submitted, and believed that Al-Megrahi had suffered a deep wrong at the hands of the intelligence services of several governments.

A full account of Mandela's visit to see Al-Megrahi, including a privately taken family photo of the two together and a photo of the hand-written inscription by Mandela, is contained in John Ashton's book Megrahi: You are my Jury - The Lockerbie Evidence (2012 - Birlinn).

The details of the visit, together with the two photos, can be read here.

  1. MISSION LIFE WITH LOCKERBIE, 2013 - Go to new facts on ground ... (google translation, german/english):

    The questionable established *friendship between Hassan Badri and Abdelbaset al Megrahi, the *renting of the office (ABH) in 1988, at Mebo Ltd. in Zurich, the *order for 40 pieces, MST-13 timer for Libya military procurement,*all organized by Hassan Badri (ABH) at MEBO Company, shortly before 21 December 1988, as well as a targeted flight booking for al Megrahi and Ed. Bollier, with Air Malta KM-231, Tripoli - Malta, on 20 December 1988, is a part of the "groundwork", to bring the former Gadhafi Regime and Abdelbaset al Megrahi (including today) in conection with the bombing of PanAm 103 over Lockerbie, on 21 Dec. 1988.

    Where is Hassan Badri hidden today ?

    The „Lockerbie Affair“ is the work of misinformation and reverse engineering that went wrong. As the case is still open in United Kingdom, the authorities will sooner or later accept the fact that the "Evidence Fraud" around the MST-13 Timer (PT-35) and the swindle with the Toshiba radio-recorder fragment (AG/145) is real and not fiction or just another weird conspiracy theory.
