Megrahi in hospital in Tripoli

Abdulbasit al-Megrahi was taken from his Tripoli home to a private hospital, his brother Abdulhakim told Reuters. "His health began to deteriorate quickly and we were worried about him, so took him immediately to the hospital where he is receiving a blood transfusion," he said. (...)

Britain freed him in 2009 on compassionate grounds because he was suffering from advanced terminal prostate cancer and thought to have months to live.

His release angered many relatives of the victims, 189 of whom were American, and the Obama administration criticised the decision. A number of US politicians have pressed for his extradition to the United States, something Libya's ruling National Transitional Council said it would not do.

    Al Megrahi does not have anything to do with the 'Lockerbie-Tragedy' -- that gives the power to him -- until the Scottish Justiciary have recognized the judgement (2001) as Miscarriage of Justice !
    Al Megrahi hat nichts zu tun mit der 'Lockerbie-Tragödie' -- das gibt Ihm die Kraft durchzuhalten -- bis von der 'Scottish Justiciary' das Urteil (2001) als Fehlurteil anerkannt wird !
