PostSubject: LOCKERBIE E PETITION   Sun Oct 10, 2010 5:42 pm


Please pass around. We all want an investigation into this case. See this: www.justiceformegrahi.com/

LOCKERBIE E-PETITION

In September 2010, ‘JFM’ made representations to the First Minister, Mr Alex Salmond MSP, in the hope that the Scottish Government would establish an inquiry into the affair under its auspices citing the following reasons:

• The event occurred over and on Scottish territory.
• The case was investigated by a Scottish police force.
• The trial was conducted under Scots Law.
• Mr Al-Megrahi was convicted under Scots Law.
• Mr Al-Megrahi was imprisoned in a Scottish gaol.
• The Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission referred the
second appeal to the Scottish Court of Appeal.
• Mr Al-Megrahi was given compassionate release by the
Scottish Cabinet Secretary for Justice.

Unfortunately the First Minister rejected this appeal.

On 8th October 2010, the ‘Justice for Megrahi’ group led by Dr Jim Swire submitted the following petition to the Scottish Parliament.

Quote:
‘Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to open an independent inquiry into the 2001 Kamp van Zeist conviction of Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi for the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 in December 1988.’

For over 20 years governments at home and abroad have lied and procrastinated each blaming the other and all putting self interest above all else. And still the truth behind the tragic deaths of 270 souls in Lockerbie on 21st December 1988 has never been revealed.

Lockerbie is a Scottish tragedy that occurred on Scottish soil. That our government has never seen fit to fight for the truth to be heard remains an indelible stain on our justice system.

If you wish our Scottish Government to carry out its own enquiry please add your name to the petition shown on the Scottish Parliament website. Signatures will be accepted until 28th October 2010.
