National Transitional Council Agrees To Keep Lockerbie Lies Between Friends: UK’s Ally Spares Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi’s Blushes
LOCKERBIE bomber Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi has been found in Libya. He’s ill. The only person to have been tried and found guilty of the biggest mass murder on British soil is in a coma at his Tripoli home. Well, so we are told.
CNN reports that Megrahi appeared to be “at death’s door“. We have not seen his medical records. And neither have the burghers on East Renfrewshire Council, under whose auspices he is out on licence on condition that he dies from his terminal prostate cancer. The trouble is that release from Scottish Jail multiples life expectancy…apparently.
CNN says Megrahi is “comatose” and “near death… surviving on oxygen and an intravenous drip“.
Says Megrahi’s son, Khaled:
“We just give him oxygen, nobody gives us any advice.”
He could call Scotland and get some advice.
“There is no doctor. There is nobody to ask. We don’t have any phone line to call anybody.”
So. Will Megrahi return to Scotland to seek the medial help he seems to urgently need? Isn’t that the humanitarian thing to do? Will the Scottish Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill have aheart? It was he who released the mass murderer from Greenock Jail on August 20 2009 because one or two doctors who may or may not have hired by the Libyan regime said the killer had a mere three months to live.
But there are stirrings of rebellion among the rebels. Mohammed al-Alagi, justice minister for the new leadership in Tripoli, The National Transitional Council, tells media:
“We will not hand over any Libyan citizen to the West. And from points A, B and C of justice, Abdelbaset al-Megrahi has already been judged once, and will not be judged again. We will not hand over any Libyan nationals, it’s Gaddafi who hands over Libyan nationals.”
And those are our new allies… See how they continue to protect the lies and the secrets.
Meanwhile, who speaks for the 270?
