US government lawyers seek cancellation of Megrahi arrest warrant

[What follows is the text of a message recently sent to the families of those who died in the Lockerbie tragedy:]

The following is a message from the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, which is the office responsible for prosecuting the Pan Am 103 case in the United States along with the Counterterrorism Section, National Security Division, of the United States Department of Justice.

As you are probably aware, the United States filed charges against Abdel Basset Ali Al-Megrahi in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in 1991 related to the bombing of Pan Am 103.  At that time, the United States government asked the Court to issue an arrest warrant for him.

The Court periodically asks the government whether outstanding arrest warrants should remain open in cases that have been pending before the Court for significant lengths of time.  We wanted to advise you that the Court has requested the government to address whether the warrant for the arrest of Abdel Basset Ali Al-Megrahi should remain open, and the Court has set a status conference for that purpose on December 8, 2015.

Given Al-Megrahi’s death, the government intends to notify the Court that the pending prosecution against Al-Megrahi has ended and, accordingly, request that the warrant for his arrest be cancelled.   As always, the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in conjunction with our Police and Crown Office colleagues from Scotland, will continue working to explore every avenue to bring to justice all others responsible for the murder of your loved ones.

[RB: It is almost fifteen years since Abdelbaset Megrahi was convicted (in a trial in which the US Department of Justice participated) and more than three years and six months since he died.]

  1. DOSSIER LOCKERBIE, 2015 -google translation, German/English:

    Second MEBO attack on the shady conclusion in the 'Lockerbie Report' of the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission (SCCRC).The Lockerbie case remains an open criminal investigation, and while the only place to determine guilt or innocence is in a court of law, the SCCRC could be a valuable body but it is itself part of the Scottish justice system. It is a clear conflict of interest.
    CHAPTER 8 - THE TIMER FRAGMENT PT/35(b) > Overall conclusion in relation to PT/35(b) Page 134 to 198:

    The first presented original MST-13 timer fragment (PT-35) black cabonized, allegedly found in Lockerbie, came from a prototype timer, which was not delivered to Libya !

    Why were at Siemens in Munich, on 27 April 1990, on the original, black carbonized MST-13 timer fragment (PT-35) the significant features, one (1) character "M" and three (3) Scratch stops away ?

    Why had at Siemens, the decisive MST-13 timer fragment (Circuit Board) (PT-35) to be sawn into two parts (PT-35/b and DP-31/a) ?

    The division was not needed from "forensic point of view"; So two parts were needed for future replacement for a Patchwork with, two different sections). The greater part of the piece has been replaced with a (green duplicate) - marked as
    (PT-35/b) - coated on both sides with green solder masks ...
    The second part DP-31/a was still from the origial prototype circuit board.

    After visiting Siemens end of April, from 15 May 1990 there was the MST-13 timer fragment as (Patchwork with two different sections, the larger part, now as (PT-35/b) with green color, together with the smaller section as (DP-31/a)
    with the original color, carbonized / black).
    Important: The MST-13 timer supplied to Libya were equipped only with green solder masks!

    The job with Siemens was carried out in order and under the responsibility of, William Williamson, Scottish Police.
    That was an important manipulation for the evidence fraud with the MST-13 timer fragment (PT-35 and PT-35/b) was needed !

    The first (original) "circuit board" was found on 20 January 1990, supposedly in a "Slalom" shirt, by expert Allen Feraday at 'RARDE' and plays a crucial fact in find the truth, in the case of Lockerbie, in a new criminal investigation.
    Why was the fund of the original fragment 2- times booked back, first to the 15 September 1989 (see the dubius "lads and lassies memo" from expert Feraday) then to the 12 May 1985, held on an questionable, additional inserted page 51, in the report 181?

    In SCCRC report also these mysterious machinations are neutralized and remain unsolved ! Questionable and suspicious...
    To be continued…
