Overweening arrogance best illustrated in the Lockerbie fiasco

[What follows is the text of a letter from Dr John Cameron published in today’s edition of The Scotsman:]

I suspect Nicola Sturgeon’s rejection of the call for judges to declare details of their finances in a register of interest will be recalled as her first major misstep as First Minister.

MPs, MSPs, councillors and board members of public bodies must register outside financial interests and judges, sheriffs and justices of the peace should be brought into line.

Scotland leading judge, Lord Gill, argued that acquiescing would “erode public confidence in the judiciary” – whereas most of the general public would argue the very opposite.

The Scottish judiciary has an overweening arrogance best illustrated in the Lockerbie fiasco and it is time they were told that rules which apply to the human race, apply also to them.

[A letter from Iain McKie published yesterday making a similar point can be read here.]


  1. Living with the "Lockerbie Affair", 2015

    The politically constructed "Lockerbie Case" - a sea full of lies !
    According to recent opening of secret FBI Report, No. 262-23, from 20 August 1990, it is clear that with two counterfeit MST-13 timer fragments, with the same name (PT-35) - the former Gaddafi regime and the official al-Megrahi, in the Pan Am 103 bombing, was involved deliberate !

    This decisive statement, unfortunately only in German Language:

    Nach kürzlicher Öffnung des geheimen FBI-Report, Nr. 262-23 , vom 20. August 1990, wird klar, dass mit zwei gefälschten MST-13 Timer Fragmenten , mit gleicher Bezeichnung (PT-35) - das damalige Gaddafi Regime und der offizielle Al-Megrahi, in das PanAm 103 Attentat, vorsätzlich verwickelt wurde !

    1.) FBI Experte Tom Thurman (damals bekannt geworden, als Mann der Woche) führte am 15. Juni 1990, den Mainstream-Medien das erste MST-13 Timerfragment, bezeichnet als (PT-35) vor und behauptete, dass das vorgezeigte, schwarz verkohlte Fragment, von einem Timer abstamme, welches zusammen mit anderen Zutaten, die PanAm 103, über Lockerbie zum Absturz brachte.

    (siehe: Photo Nr. 334, dieses Fragment wurde aus einem Prototyp MST-13 "Circuit Board" hergestellt und bestand aus 8 Lagen Fiberglas).
    Diese Fragment konnte nicht von einem MST-13 Timer abstammen, welche von MEBO Ltd., 1985, nach Libyen geliefert wurden. Die "Libyen Timer Circuit Boards" waren aus 9 Lagen Fiberglas fabriziert.).

    2.) Später wurde von schottischer Seite verkündet, dass das (schwarz verkohlte)Fragment (PT-35) am 15. September 1989, im Labor bei RARDE, in einem Stück "Slalom Shirt) von Experte Allen Feraday gefunden wurde.
    (siehe manipuliertes Polizei Label PI-995 & Memorandum Feraday zu Williamson).

    3.) Beim Lockerbie Prozess 2000/01 in Kamp van Zeist, wurde unter Eid, von Zeuge Feraday ausgesagt, das Fragment (PT-35) sei am 12. Mai 1989 bei RARDE aufgefunden worden... (siehe Report 181, manipulierte Zusatzseite Nr. 51)

    4.) Nur mit einem MST-13 Timerfragment (PT-35) fabriziert aus 9 Lagen Fiberglas, konnte Libyen mit dem "Bombing" auf PanAm 103, verwickelt werden. Offensichtlich wurde eine andere Lösung gefunden:

    5.) Aus dem kürzlich geöffneten, geheimen FBI-Report, wird abgestützt auf die RARDE-Untersuchung bekannt, dass das Fragment (PT-35) im Labor, bei RARDE, erst am 22. Januar 1990, in einem Stück "Slalom Shirt" - gefunden wurde !

    Obgleich das neue Fragment als (PT-35) bezeichnet wurde, wird nicht mehr von einem, schwarz verkohltem Fragment ausgegangen, sondern von einem, mit grünem Lötstop Lack überzogenen MST-13 Timerfragment (PT-35), fabriziert aus 9 Lagen Fiberglas !
    Zum Material Vergleich wurde im "FBI-Criminal Laboratory" ein MST-13 Timer, Typ (K1) hinzugezogen, welcher von USA in TOGO in Besitz genommen wurde. Der Timer soll angeblich von Libyen nach TOGO, geliefert worden sein ?

    Notabene: Das aktuelle, grüne Fragment (PT-35) hatte keine Brandspuren und wurde nicht auf Sprengstoff Puder untersucht ! (siehe Foto Nr.335)

  2. The Scottish evidence of fraud with the MST-13 timer fragment (PT-35)!

    Where did the tiny circuit board fragment come from ? Someone might say "it came out of the blue", but the first person to "discover" the fragment was FBI's forensic "expert" Thomas James Thurman. Why are we putting "" around the words expert and discover ?
    Already while Thurman was working on another case, along side with the Lockerbie Case, his collegue at the FBI's Scientific Analysis Section (SAS), Frederic Whitehurst, wrote a memo to his chief:

    "SSA Tom Thurman, the principle examiner of evidence in this matter, circumvented established procedures and protocols in the assignment of evidence to examiners in the SAS, testified to areas of expertise that he had no qualifications in therefore fabricating evidence in his testimony, in order to prove the guilt of Walter Leroy Moody instead of establishing the true significance and weight of the scientific data.
    Thurman was fully aware of the fact that he was in violation of procedures and protocols of the FBI laboratory and did knowingly and purposely commit perjury and obstruction of justice in this matter."
    ...and that was one case, Thurman was working with. More perjury and obstructance of justice followed after the Leroy Moody case. And since the indictment, Thurman has been suspended from the FBI after his laboratory was suspected of falsifying evidence.

    Later on Whitehurst testified to these points in a court of law:
    "Thurman is simply fabricating evidence as he sits on the stand to make evidence fit." " Mr. Thurman is not an explosives residue expert. He is not a chemist.
    His opinion is not an experts opinion but personal conjecture." "During a recent investigation while conducting tests at Quantico, Virginia, both I and SSA Steven Burmeister had to explain to Thurman in the most elementary terms the significance of the presence of nitrate oxidizers in explosives.

    Thurman had no idea what an explosive material was composed of or how the different components functioned in the chemical reaction of the explosion. He expressed his belief that the "nitrogen content" of the explosive was the factor which controlled its power."
    ..... and much more of the same stuff. It quicly became clear that Thomas Thurman had no idea of what he has been working with. Furthermore, Thurman went to Germany to interview Pan Am 103-suspect and bomb-wizard Marwan Khreesat - but he completely forgot to tell Scottish police about that.

    They never got any report... If there ever will be a trial against Fhima or Megrahi or any other suspect in the Lockerbie Case - pray that the FBI is not using Thurmans testimony and "evidence"! Thurman today does not work at the FBI as forensic "expert" anymore.

  3. “erode public confidence in the judiciary”
    Interestingly, the exact phrase has more than 100,000 matches in google, a couple of orders of magnitudes more than I would have expected. In other words, it is a standard expression.
    So, the matter should be of some importance? This is not always the impression you get when you see the public passivity.

    Here in Thailand, a number of people, including politicians, members of the military and judges, have to declare assets. CEOs of listed companies have to declare their buy and sales of shares.

    The information might not be made public but it can be made available to court in cases where suitability of a particular judge is in question.

    Does this asset-declaration 'erode public confidence'? It does indeed, at times, where somebody is found to be 'unusually wealthy' (another common expression in the press here). Like when a person in a powerful job, only having a salary and running no business, suddenly is found to have fortunes in what would be equivalent to tens of millions of pounds.

    Is this the kind of erosion is what Mr. Gill talks about and would like to avoid?

    Hardly, but then what? Is it a belief, that a society may reach a level where the integrity of a group of people is so high, that no checks are needed?

    John Cameron is right: the Lockerbie case overwhelmingly proves the opposite.

    E.g. when the very top person, Mr. Frank Mulholland, makes public statements that are so misleading that they are indistinguishable from flat lies:

    "During the 26-year long inquiry not one Crown Office investigator or prosecutor has raised a concern about the evidence in this case.

    We remain committed to this investigation and our focus remains on the evidence, and not on speculation and supposition.

    Our prosecutors and police officers, working with UK government and US colleagues, will continue to pursue this investigation, with the sole aim of bringing to justice those who acted along with al-Megrahi."

  4. It's a bit like Prince Charles's "spider letters". The heir to the throne has been lobbying politicians, but we have to keep this secret because if people knew exactly what he'd been saying it would damage the standing of the monarchy.
