Dear Scottish Justiciary. What goes on is a barbarous cruelty!
What has been done and is still done to Mr. Abdelbaset al Megrahi, an innocent and terminally ill man, by the Scottish Justice is very hard to bear.
What kind of a unhuman jurisdiction goes on in Scotland? An innocent man, serving a life sentence has finally succeeded to get a second appeal by the Scottish Criminal Case Review Commission (SCCRC) because of a possible miscarriage of justice based on six grounds. After a further deliberate delay his second appeal started on April 28, 2009 at the Appeal Court in Edinburgh. One day later, on April 29, 2009 a 'Prisoner Transfer Agreement' between Libya and the UK was ratified. To integrate Mr. Abdelbaset al Megrahi in the deal the Scottish justice added the dubious paragraph (c) at the end of the agreement:
(c) the prisoner has consented to being transferred in accordance with those arrangements the relevant Minister shall issue a warrant providing for the transfer of the prisoner into or out of the United Kingdom.
This provision requiring the prisoner's consent was removed in 2006, but it is abundantly clear that, irrespective of the wishes of the UK, Scottish and Libyan authorities, Megrahi cannot in fact be transferred back to Libya without his consent since he cannot be transferred without his current appeal being abandoned and no-one but Megrahi can instruct the abandonment of that appeal.
Because of strong exonerating evidence in favour of Megrahi the Scottish Justice is in difficulties concerning several aspects of the appeal. By extorsively means Megrahi is tempted to accept a questionable deal and abandon his appeal for being tranfered back to his family in Libya. What An other great dishonor for the Scottisch justice system !!!
The chances to win the appeal until May 22, 2009 by defence evidence are undeniable! Mr. Megrahi and Libya have nothing to do with the Lockerbie-Tragedy. Mr. Abdelbaset al Megrahi and Libya are intitled to get their honour back by a clear decision of the appeal court! Mr. Megrahi said: "This is the real way to clear my name before I go back to my homeland Libya." Mr. Al-Megrahi has consistently maintained his innocence and has vowed to stay in Scotland and win his freedom through the appeal courts. MEBO has already disposed of all the needed exonerating evidence to the Defence Team and the High Court.
