Lockerbie bomber 'critical in hospital'

2012-04-14 17:30

Tripoli - Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi, the Libyan convicted of the Lockerbie plane bombing, has been hospitalised in Tripoli in critical condition, a source close to his family said on Saturday.

"Abdelbaset has been in hospital since yesterday and his condition is critical," the source told AFP.

"He was admitted on Friday when his health became not so good," the source said, adding that Megrahi's relatives were at his bedside.

A Scottish court in 2001 convicted Megrahi of the 1988 bombing that killed 270 people, but he was released on compassionate grounds in 2009 and allowed to return to Libya.

Doctors said at the time that he had terminal cancer and had only three months to live.

    If he did it I agree with all of you. I'm not so sure if they were convinced of his guilt that they would have released him, terminal or not.

    What a bunch of inane twats the commentators to this story are!! The evidence that was used to convict him was contrived. Especially the "Bomb Timer fragment" which was made of a different metal to that the actual timers used!! The witness (Tony Gauchi) who was paid $2m raised many questions about his contradictory evidence and the fact he had a picture of Megrahi before the lineup id parade! And that the UK Government has used the Official Secrets act to muzzle senior Police officers involved in the investigation. Not to mention the UK SCCRC report into the miscarriage of justice that they are prohibited from releasing to the Public!! Am I being sensationalist - see "Lockerbie_ Case closed" by Al Jazeera and the documentary "The Maltese Double-Cross" Maybe consider all the evidence before posting comments that illustrate the idiocity of your comments!
