R I P Robert Forrester
Robert Forrester, secretary of Justice for Megrahi, died yesterday after a short illness. It is immensely sad that he did not live to see the disgraceful conviction of Abdelbaset Megrahi overturned, a cause for which he worked unstintingly over many years. In the words of James Robertson, "Robert was a man whose intellect I admired and whose personality I liked immensely. I very much doubt he anticipated watching over us from another place, but I sincerely hope that if and when we achieve a result in the cause of justice Robert will somehow be alongside us in spirit, revelling in the success."
