Objections to neutral venue trial countered in Commons

On this date in 1997, the adjournment debate in the House of Commons was on the topic of Lockerbie and, principally, on arguments that I had supplied to Tam Dalyell MP refuting the various objections that had been raised to a trial of the two Libyan suspects in a neutral country under Scottish law and (modified) Scottish procedure. The Official Report (Hansard) of the fascinating debate, in which only Mr Dalyell and Tony Lloyd (Minister of State at the Foreign Office) participated, can be read here.
