Can Crown Office vested interests be overcome?

[What follows is excerpted from a report in today’s edition of The National:]

Scottish politicians have a duty to find out the truth about the Lockerbie bombing, according to a member of Justice for Megrahi (JfM), the group that believes Abdelbaset al Megrahi, the only man convicted of the atrocity, was innocent.
Iain McKie’s comments came two days ahead of the 28th anniversary of the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, in which 270 people died, and as JfM wrote to the new Lord Advocate James Wolffe QC, urging him to ensure the Crown Office gives “independent and objective consideration” to a Police Scotland report into the group’s criminal allegations.
McKie told The National the report – Operation Sandwood – which is more than a year late, was unlikely to be released until next year.
He said: “It won’t be this year and we’re looking at the early part of next year, which gives us breathing space to some extent to get the matter looked at properly.
“James Wolffe is a new man on the block and has no previous associations with Lockerbie. You’ve got to trust the man’s integrity until you find out otherwise, but there’s no doubt the previous incumbent Frank Mulholland was totally prejudiced and biased against the inquiry and made this publicly clear.
“Wolfe is not – he’s not been previously tainted with Lockerbie and therefore we’ve got to trust him. The issue is whether he can overcome the vested interests within the Crown Office that might want to brush this under the carpet.”
The basis of JfM’s case is the belief that the conviction of Megrahi in 2001 was a miscarriage of justice, and they have pressed for an independent inquiry into it.

  1. DOSSIER LOCKERBIE, 2016, google translation German/English:

    Comment to ex FBI Agent Richard Marquise, wrote Scotbom: Evidence and the Lockerbie Investigation a non-fiction account of the international terrorism case.

    At least confirms ex FBI Special Agent Richard Marquise, in his crime story, among other things, that the MST-13 Timerfragment (circuit board, PT35) was found by RARDE in mid January 1990, in a shirt.
    Thus confirm the fraud of proof in addition, in the wrong court decision - Kamp van Zeist 2000/01 - against Libya and Abdelbaset al Megrahi, because the date for criminal reasons, limited in duration to the 12 May 1989, had to be reset!

    Fact: With a manipulated label (PI-995) from 'Scottish police', was found on 17 January 1989, under the overridden word "DEBRIS" (previously cloths, charred) a "shirt" in Lockerbie and the MilitärInstitut 'RARDE', passed to the forensic investigation.
    On that reset date - May 12, 1989 - the MST-13 Timerfragment (PT-35) is to be found then in a slalom shirt ... (Supported on modified page no. 51, RARDE report 181, of 12 May. 1989)

    This false testimony and the following were intentional and launched under OATH at the Court in Kamp van Zeist by Inspector Chief William Williamson, (Scottish police), Expert Allen Feraday (RARDE) Det. Gilchrist Thomas (Scottish police).

    in German:
    Mindestens bestätigt ex FBI Special Agent Richard Marquise, in seiner Kriminal Story, dass u.a. das MST-13 Timerfragment (circuit board, PT35) erst ab Mitte Januar 1990, in einem Shirt Kragen, bei RARDE gefunden wurde.

    Damit bestätigt sich der Beweisbetrug zusätzlich, weil im falschen Gerichtsurteil - Kamp van Zeist 2000/01 - gegen Libyen und Abdelbaset Al Megrahi, das Datum aus kriminellen Gründen, zeitlich auf den 12. Mai 1989, zurückgesetzt werden musste !

    Faktum: Mit einer manipulierten Etikette (PI-995) der 'Scottish Police', wurde am 17. Januar 1989, unter dem überschriebenen Wort "DEBRIS" (zuvor cloths, charred) ein "Shirt" in Lockerbie gefunden und dem MilitärInstitut 'RARDE', zur forensischen Untersuchung übergeben. An diesem zurückgesetzten Datum - 12. Mai 1989 - soll dann das MST-13 Timerfragment (PT-35) in einem Slalom Shirt gefunden worden sein.... (Abgestützt auf manipulierter Seite Nr. 51, im RARDE-Report 181, vom 12. Mai. 1989)

    Diese falsche Zeugenaussage und folgende, wurden vorsätzlich und wohlweislich unter EID, am Gericht in Kamp van Zeist von Inspektor Chef, William Williamson (Scottish Police), Experte Allen Feraday (RARDE) Det. Gilchrist Thomas (Scottish Police) bezeugt.
