PostSubject: Send Cards of Support to Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi   Wed Oct 22, 2008 11:12 am

Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, who was convicted of the murder of 270 people by blowing up an airliner over the town almost 20 years ago, is understood to have been given weeks to live by doctors, after hospital tests confirmed he had "advanced stage" prostate cancer.

Prisoners thought to have less than three months to live in Scotland can apply for early release on compassionate grounds.

The families of British casualties called on ministers to release Megrahi if that – as seems likely – proves to be his wish.

Megrahi is awaiting his second appeal against his conviction.
Dr Swire, who is a spokesman for the UK Families Flight 103 group, also called for Megrahi's appeal to be speeded up.
He said: "I feel it is a very serious threat to his life and it would be a tragedy if he is to spend the rest of his life in a Scottish prison, particularly if he is not guilty of the crime of which he was found guilty. I'm not satisfied that the verdict against him is correct. It sounds to me like an unfolding human tragedy."
So many of us wordlwide believe that Al Megrahi has been wrongfully convicted and therefor should be released while he is so sick and still waiting on the outcome of his appeal.

Please send cards DIRECTLY to Al Megraghi and also write, fax or email Alex Salmond and also Kenny McAskill asking them to free this man on compassionate grounds. The Glasgow Two recieved Interim Liberation while awaiting their appeal. The same should happen in this case.
