In one week more than 1,200 people have backed an independent inquiry into the conviction of the Lockerbie bomber. A petition was lodged at the Scottish Parliament urging ministers to look again at the 2001 trial, which saw Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi become the only man to be found guilty of the 1988 terror attack.

One year after the Libyan’s release on compassionate grounds, campaigners launched the new attempt to secure an inquiry. The appeal is being led by pressure group JUSTICE FOR MEGRAHI and involves DR JIM SWIRE whose daughter Fiona was killed in the Pan Am bombing.

The petition was lodged 8 October 2010, can be accessed through the Scottish Parliament website, and closes Thursday next week.

NOTE: I again draw attention to this statement in my blog post of 27 July 2010:  ‘Open LOCKERBIE details (the town/the people) and Scottish Ritual Freemasonry Lodge 258 Quhytewoollen – later used as a mortuary for the 270 victims of the bombing of Pan-Am 103. The people of Lockerbie – and that includes Police, Procurators Fiscal and Court officials – do not have an honest face between them!’
