His guilt is doubted by ... experts who must be taken seriously

[What follows is the text beneath one of the photographs (number 21 out of 25) accompanying an article published yesterday on the Swiss Bluewin news website:]

Abdel Baset al-Megrahi aus Libyen wurde 2001 wegen des Bombenanschlags auf Pan Am Flug 103 über Lockerbie, Schottland, zu lebenslanger Haft verurteilt. 2009 wurde unheilbarer Prostatakrebs bei ihm diagnostiziert und er wurde in seine Heimat entlassen. Dort starb er drei Jahre später. Seine Schuld wird bis heute von vielen, auch ernst zu nehmenden Experten, bezweifelt.

Abdel Baset al-Megrahi from Libya was sentenced in 2001 to life imprisonment for the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. In 2009 he was was diagnosed with incurable prostate cancer and he was discharged to his home. He died there three years later. To this day his guilt is doubted by many, including experts who must be taken seriously.

[Yet another sign perhaps that Justice for Megrahi is getting somewhere, internationally at least.]


  1. Open letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon with regard to potential evidence of fraud in the ‘Lockerbie case’:

    His Excellency Ban Ki-Moon Secretary-General of the United Nations, 1st Avenue & 44th St. New York, NY 10017

    Zurich / Switzerland, 11th November 2014
    Reference: The Scottish 'Lockerbie Fraud'

    Your Excellency,

    With this orientation letter I would like to ask you to recall the 270 victims of the ‘Lockerbie tragedy’ (1988) before the coming ‘26th anniversary’ and help to clarify the demonstrably false decision of Scottish Justice by means of a supplementary investigation. As you surely know, UN Commissioner for Namibia Bernt CARLSSON was also among the 270 victims.

    The UN, as an involved party in the “Lockerbie saga” - or alternatively in connection with the 8-year, fatally affected UN sanctions against the State of Libya - has the obligation to help clarify an obviously politically motivated fraud perpetrated against the then Gaddafi regime in Libya and other aggrieved parties.

    My name is Edwin Bollier. I am owner of MEBO AG in Zurich, Switzerland. After a trial in the years 2000/01 under Scottish jurisdiction, Edwin Bollier and MEBO AG were specified in the “Lockerbie trial” as the supplier of a MST- 13 timer.

    According to a legally valid decision, to this day it is said that an MST-13
    timer activated the explosive charge (IED) so that the aircraft (Pan Am 103) crashed over Lockerbie. Accordingly, a Libyan official, Mr al-Megrahi, and Libya were held responsible for the attack, and Mr al-Megrahi was sentenced to life imprisonment. Mr al- Megrahi died on 20 May 2012
    According to a statement by Professor Dr Hans Köchler, international observer appointed by the United Nations to the Lockerbie trial in the Netherlands (2000-2002), Prof Köchler also condemned during a conference at the Arab League headquarters in Cairo: “the Lockerbie process of that Scottish trial as inconsistent, irrational and politically motivated”
    After an appeal to the 'Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission' (SCCRC), on 28 June 2007 the SCCRC granted a new appeal due to potential miscarriage of justice in 6 points.

    Unfortunately, the appeal was suspended under duress for obviously politically motivated reasons. Due to new forensic and technical evidence and investigations, today it can be 100% clarified whether the decisive piece of evidence stemmed from an MST-13 timer fragment of a timer delivered to Libya or not. For 3 years, Edwin Bollier and MEBO AG have been demanding an explanation in this matter from the Swiss justice system after a criminal complaint against a known and unknown government employee.

    Due to a legal delay and other questionable opportunities, a criminal investigation which would be relevant for ascertaining the truth remains suspended...
    Due to a court decision by the Swiss Federal Tribunal, a claim for damages submitted by Edwin Bollier and MEBO AG was rejected on 1 May 2014 as forfeited; therefore the decision was appealed to the European Court of Justice on 11 November 2014.

    It is incomprehensible that in one of the greatest criminal cases in history, the Swiss and Scottish justice system want to block pieces of evidence through a clarifying forensic investigation of the central MST-13 timer according to the latest methods by all possible means! Should the truth not be desired due to anticipated claims for damages, amounting to billions of US dollars, due to potential evidence of fraud?

    It would be in the interest of the surviving dependents of the victims of Pan Am 103, the financially damaged parties and the UN’s world public reputation that you, Mr. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the UN, would stand up for ascertaining the truth by means of new facts and the UN would thereby call
    on its two members, the United Kingdom and Switzerland, to implement the forensic investigation.

    Your Excellency,

    We trust that you will use your authority to protect the UN and its integrity against conceivable evidence of fraud and to act in such a manner that the truth and only the truth comes to light. Thank you very much!

    Yours respectfully,
