Death of Frank Duggan reported

Today’s edition of The Times reports the death at the age of 79 of Frank Duggan, President of the US Lockerbie relatives’ organisation Victims of Pan Am Flight 103, Inc.

References to Frank Duggan on this blog can be found here. He was not himself a relative of a Lockerbie victim but was on the staff of the Presidential Commission on Aviation Security and Terrorism (PCAST) set up after the disaster, in charge of family liaison.

The death notice in The Washington Post can be read here.


  1. 9th November is the anniversary of something else Lockerbie-related. 9th November 2012 is the date the original seven allegations of criminality were submitted by Justice for Megrahi to the Dumfries and Galloway police. (Two more allegations were subsequently added early the following year.)

    It's now five years since the initiation of the investigation that ultimately led to Operation Sandwood being instigated about 18 months later.

  2. I have an email from Duggan saying 'Do not send any more nutty information to the US victims. We gave your papers to the US state department 2 years ago and you have nothing more to add'.

    Apparently, he acts like a victim's father when he was just another lawyer. Guess he was the real fraud but he did put in writing the US government knew other facts. The Libyan's lawyer assigned to me told me they had to negotiate what was allowed rather than what was real. The fact the DIA said Iran did it would have stopped the trial but no sanction relief for Libya
